I have this Pottery Barn rug I got at a garage sale. I really like it, but it is in direct sunlight most of the day, and totally faded. I was touching up some of my black furniture last week before we had a 60th wedding anniversary, and (I kind of go crazy when I have a paint brush in my hand. The kids all know not to touch ANYTHING with whatever color I am using at the time.) I decided to paint the faded, black part of this rug. Of course I thought of taking a picture after I started.
I used this Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch, flat, black paint.
Here it is finished.
You could see here, how now it matches the stool and the vanity.
I did have to lock the door for a couple of hours. Not many of the kids would think that I would paint the rug.
Do think it looks better?
While I had the black paint in my hands, I also painted my son’s desk. (It was white and in really bad condition.) My son didn’t like that I was doing it right then because he was on the computer, had to get off, and move all the things off of the desk. Of course I did not take a before picture, again. (Excuse all the cords, his chair is usually blocking them.)
