Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece. Whatever the reason, everyone needs a good rug, but like most beautiful things in this world, buying them from stores can get pretty damn expensive. So instead of having to settle for a design that you’re not totally in love with, or having to spend way too much for that dream design, do the (not so) unthinkable and actually make your own rug.
You won’t regret it!
