DIY Moroccan Rag Rug

We love the bold look of Moroccan rugs. Cotton rag rugs are perfect for DIY projects because you can paint them or dye them, and they are easy to throw in the wash...beyond versatile. We gathered inspiration from some favorite designs and mapped out a pattern on the rug using painter's tape. With a few brush strokes of black paint, the rug was done. Placed in the entryway of a studio, it’s the best way to greet guests with a bold statement!
