Recycled Rug

I have this boring plain light colored rug.  Mainly it's the light color that bothers me.  It seems we have the BLACKEST road right out front of our apartment.  That's why this rug needs to be washed like 3 times a day.  So I decided to stop fighting the darkness and embrace it.

Fabric dye
Freeze paper
old rug
STEP 1: Cut out your pattern with freeze paper then iron it on.

STEP 2: Dye it.  I used a Jaquard fabric dye.  I added some water into a spray bottle and then got to spraying.  Or actually Kelsey did.

STEP 3: Peel off the freezer paper.  Let dry and for my dye I had to iron the back side to heat set the dye.   YEAH now I don't have to be so annal about the washing of my entry rug!
