I've been creating West Elm inspired home decor all summer as part of a fun series with some blog friends and today is the final project! I made a DIY Painted Rug and it's a lot easier than you might think!

I found a large area rug that I loved by West Elm but the price tag left a lot to be desired - $400! So I recreated it for a LOT less money!

I bought a large fabric drop cloth and used painter's tape and fabric paint to recreate the design and color scheme.
**Tip: You can use acrylic paint mixed with fabric medium to make fabric paint, like I did!**

The combination of oranges and browns, and the modern design, is perfect for my living space and a great fall piece. Since it didn't cost much to make, I won't feel bad changing it out with the seasons!
