Sweet Trellis Floorcloth rug

I love making these floor cloth rugs. This is a smaller one with a trellis design on pink with sage border. There are so many links on Google to make a floor cloth, but I just had to try a few out to get it right. One of my customers ordered this one in a 96x31 runner, talk about time consuming! The thing I love about them, they last and last! One of my problems with regular rugs are they get dirty and it cost a fortune to have them cleaned, i usually just toss them out it didn't cost allot. With the floor cloth rugs, you can mop them and with all the sealer coats it protects the design . This little one is on my eBay for now, I'm working on getting all the new designs on the website. Thanks for stopping by!!! Hugs, Kim

You can make it Too!

Besides keeping up with my Design Star episodes on Sunday night, I have been painting a lot and trying to come up with new ideas for my art. This one I credit my husband with! The top image is a distressed moulding frame in pinks, then my husband cut a sheet metal piece and applied enamel paint. Voila! A magnet memo board. They come with my clothespin magnets, this is such a sweet idea love them. The bottom photo is an antique frame painted white then I applied a pearl pink glaze paint to the raised accents, the metal panel is painted a flesh pale pink enamel spray, then I hand painted roses at top and bottom corners. If you don't paint, some rose decals would look pretty too. They are so much fun to create . I'm working on more creative ideas to post soon, hope you all are having a fun summer! Hugs,Kimberly
