Not too bad. Similar to a new pair of dark jeans on a white chair. I think the fact that I watered the dye down helped a lot.
So then Cheryle showed up in white shorts and I made her sit all over the rug. All in the name of blogging. Her shorts looked great and she refused to let me take an ass shot.
So to recap... Rit Dye + shaggy wool rug= Beni Ourain on the cheap. A Flokati rug would work too. I'd love to do color blocks for a Boucherouite look next. That won't be any time soon. The DIY bug has almost left the building and the beach is calling.
My kids want to make skimboards and found a tutorial on YouTube, so that will be next...but first Cheryle and I have to whip up a sunburst mirror for one of her clients.
We played with power tools, one of my favorite things to do. (In the basement of WAY too much crap) Making another one of these from old fence pickets... see how here.
Its going in a pool house, fancy, I know. I'll post pics once its up.
Have a FANTABULOUS weekend! xo
