Well, if you don't quite have the collection that you'd like, let me share with you Melissa's recent blog post that shows you how to take these:

You can see how she did it on her blog, The Happier Homemaker.  It's a wonderful idea, and EASY!  Now, if I only hadn't taken all those vases to the thrift store last year!  ;)

Stenciled Rug Tutorial - Creatively Living

If you've read Hello, New Day lately then you know that I'm in love with all things stenciled right now.  And I love it when someone can restore or otherwise redo something that seems like its a goner.  Like this rug that Stacie had in her basement:

Honestly, I would have thought this rug had seen it's last days.  I'm not sure I would have known that it could be painted.  Check out what it looks like now!

Seriously!  You can see exactly how Stacie performed this transformation over on her blog, Creatively Living.  It's beautiful!  And it's projects like this one, and Melissa's, that make me LOVE crafting and DIYing.  They are simply The Bee's Knees!


  1. Wonderful selections to be featured. Loved the post. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you for the feature Catherine! Love that stenciling project too, I have a rug that I've been trying to convince my husband to throw away for years that might just be perfect for that project!

  3. Wow, such great projects and inspiration, that stenciled rug is so awesome!!
