Ok seriously why didnt I think of this? Medium to heavy upholstery fabric, canvas drop cloth and floor gripper fabric. I'm doing it this week cuz I want a perfect one for my laundry room and kids playrooms!
It's no secret that rugs can cost a pretty penny. Cotton durhies that you can find with big box retailers start in the hundreds. This one is made using a really heavyweight cotton dropcloth, some pain.
Make your own rug with a drop cloth and fabric paint! It's easy to customize your rug to fit your decor. See the tutorial at The Handyman's Daughter! | drop cloth project | drop cloth rug | drop cloth area rug | make your own area rug | paint your rug
