The carpet reveal;)

Hello Lovelies, 
today I will show you my painted rug;)
As you can see it in this post here, 
I bought a rug at IKEA and
found this nice inspiration foto, 

than searched for a pattern and found this here...

made a stencil and traced them on the carpet.

Than the crazy part starts;)
It took me two days to finish this project...

That`s how the carpet looks like after one coat of gray paint (just a little wet), which looks
more blue than gray on the fotos but it is a warm gray tone.

After everything dried I started to paint the spaces in a creamy white.
And that`s how it looks right now after sanding it a little bit.

 I`m pretty happy how it turned out;)

And here it is in my bedroom in the reading nook;)

What do you think?
Do you like my new carpet as much as I do?;)

Here are the most asked questions about this project!
And the answers;)

1. Which size has this rug?
It is  165x230cm or 5,5x7,7inches.

2. Which size has the stencil?
Is is 53x30cm.

3. What paint did you use?
Every one who painted a rug uses latex paint. 
Or fabric paint.
I took regular indoor wall paint, nothing special, 
It worked really well for me.
It is a soft grey and a milky white color.

4. Why sanding it?
After i applied the last coat, the rug seemed a little stiff, crinkly and rough, 
so I put out my little electric sander and gave em a try.
Now the rug is more soften than it was before.
The structure of the rug is now like it was before it was painted.

5. Didn`t the paint get through the rug onto the floor?
Nope, because the rug is sealed at the backside.

6. How does it support traffic, doesn`t it fade out 
where people stand or walk?
Can`t report on that, this rug is supposed for my bedroom, 
It is not so much traffic around there;)

7.How do you clean them? Remove Stains?
Simply vacuuming the rug.
There are no STAINS on my rug!!!;)
