Bleached Chevron Rug

Materials: Ikea rag rug (not avail now), Bleach, Masking Tape, Spray Bottle, Tape Measure, Towel

Description: I took an old solid green rag rug from Ikea and turned it into a groovy chevron pattern to be used as a runner on a table or floor of a mudroom.

1. Lay out pattern on rug.

2. Tape off design.

3. Spray Bleach.
4. Remove Tape.
5. Beat, dry in dryer, wash, dry again.
6. Roll it out for use!

    Washed? would you use also your “welcome” mat on your table?

    I think it looks great. She said she washed the dang rug, people! Ever use a cloth napkin? Someone throws them in a washing machine in between uses, too!

    while i love the idea of using the bleach instead of the paint, i am kind of tired od the chevron. it’s inspiring to do any other pattern.
    But please don’t put it on the table, it just gross.
