DIY Post: Upcycled Vintage Rug

At Libby Story we are all about recycling and upcycling vintage goods. We think putting a modern twist on an object that has vintage charm is a great way to make something that’s one-of-a-kind. In this DIY, we tackle home/dorm decor with a lovely upcycled vintage rug!

STEP ONE: Tape your rug with painters tap or heavy masking tape on the areas you do not want painted.

STEP TWO: If you printed out text or shapes, cut them out with your scissors or box cutter. Once cut, you can tape your stencil on the back (or use a spray adhesive if available).

STEP THREE: Adhere your stencil to the rug where you’d like it, apply pressure and make sure all edges are secured down.

STEP FOUR: Spray your color of choice over top of your rug. Try to keep your line of spray directly over the rug, since shooting at an angle may allow paint under your stencil… Try to be patient while it dries- we know the anticipation is killer.

STEP FIVE: Peel and reveal! Then try out some other patterns and colors– like this MSU Maroon chevron print!

Here’s wishing you all happy decorating!
