When I decided to participate in Linda's Paint a Rug Party, it sounded like fun. I had a ball participating in her One Room Challenge and was ready for another of her challenges. Then reality set in -
1. I am a complete and total perfectionist.
2. I am not a DIY type.
3. I don't paint.
4. I don't need a rug anywhere in my home.
5. I am crazy busy.
After mulling this around for a while, I looked at some DIY paint your own rugs online and saw that the easiest is stripes. I love stripes and I love combining stripes and Chinoiserie. I even have a Pinterest board on the subject!
