That's right, that's a rug on my wall! I fell in love with the colors and the texture and immediately knew it would be perfect for my living room. The rug is from Crate and Barrel, called "TOCHI".
Small Living Room Ideas: Who Says Rugs Are Just for Floors!
I have a tiny living room (10 ft x 7.5 ft) but it does have one big blank wall that was screaming for something to jazz it up. Being a renter, I wanted to do something quick and easy to remove later, and ideally something that I could take with me when I move. Who would have thought that the solution would present itself in the form of a rug!
I made a frame to fit the size of the rug (4' x 6') with inexpensive 1"x2" furring strips ($1 for 8 ft). There's a few tricks and tips to build this on my blog.
I painted the furring strips the same color of the wall to make them blend in and then used upholstery nails, every 2 1/2" inches, to secure the rug to the panel.
I used 3M command picture-hanging strips to secure the panel to the wall to prevent it from falling over (the legs handle the weight of the panel) and that's it!
I love that I didn't have to make any holes in the wall and that I can always reuse the rug later in another space. You can watch the entire process of how I decorated my living room in this video.
