livingroom redo

My livingroom is slowly coming together. But some details are still missing before I can show pictures...
Today I bought a cheap seagrass rug. But because it looked a bit cheap and plain I painted stripes on it.


I mixed a bit of leftover aqua color with white paint and water...
I think it looks pretty cool.
Exactly the beachy feel I was looking for! :)


Tomorrow I will show how it looks like in my livingroom!
I considered to haul it inside, with the plastic sheet under... but as I get older I get more wise and patient... (hehe, just ask my husband!) I'll wait til tomorrow.
