Painted IKEA inspired striped rug

Today I am sharing another project from the boys room. Oh…there is so much more to share. So, this painted rug was born last year but I never got to share it with you. Now, that we are in the process of our boys room makeover, this rug finally found its perfect place. The boys room color scheme started as orange and navy blue, but I think adding a little green totally makes the whole look of the room. I purchased this rug five years ago at  IKEA, for about 30 some dollars. It was a lovely beige color ( perfect for painting over).

Unfortunately, they don’t sell it anymore. I wish they do.

 This black and white carpet from IKEA inspired me to paint the same pattern, and I thought it would be super easy to replicate it with some fun color.


It was easy. Super easy. It took a little time to tape the whole rug, but it was totally worth the time.

I used regular paint from BEHR. Color: Grass Cloth

I had some leftover from the GARAGE ORGANIZING PROJECT.  (  Sarah from Sarah M Dorsey Designs made this rug also, using a different color, check it out HERE)

I love mix and match colors and patterns. My vision for the boys room was something cool, fun with lots of colors.

  1. This looks great! I’ve been searching for a rug to put in my kids room- we have navy as a colour too and so the black and white options (although fun) are out for me… I wish they still sold these plain ones for me to try this out. Any suggestions where to find something similar?

    1. Colleen,unfortunately I have no idea where you could find a rug similar to this one. You may find something if you Google ,it was Erslev rug from Ikea.Hope it helps. I wish they sell it still as It was just perfect to paint. Have a wonderful weekend!
