Bring a fresh breath to an old rug with this DIY painted rug tutorial! A recycled painted rug is the perfect base to recreate the pattern you love on an expensive rug or simply create a brand new design!

We got this jute rug a while back when our dog was living indoors with us day and night. He fell in love with this rug and made it his own and soon, our poor rug started to show signs of distress lol Especially from drooling. Soooo much drooling!! The rug got a few spots I never managed to remove in spite of trying everything, even chemical cleaners. So I decided it’s time to completely transform it and get ourselves a painted canvas rug.

I used a simple geometric pattern because it suits my style better but also because I wasn’t very confident in my painting skills. This is the first time I was making a DIY painted rug but after this wonderful experience, I can’t wait to try my hand on other rugs!

Suggested materials:

  • Jute rug
  • Acrylic paint
