Vecco Design Your Own Rug Kit

Recently I was given the opportunity by QVC to try one of their products, the Vecco Design Your Own Rug Kit.  It was a really fun project and I love how my rug turned out.  Plus I like the idea of having a unique rug that no one else has!

The kit came to me in a really neat package.  It included the rug, 2 cans of paint (I got blue and green), 2 cans of sealer, and lots of stencils.  I got the geometric kit which included stencils of the whole alphabet and various geometric shapes.

The directions are really quite simple.  First you must vacuum the rug, then paint your rug (which can be done inside... it's safe for kids and pets!), and once it has dried for 48 hours, you seal it.  After you complete those steps you have your very own customized rug! 

This gives you an idea of what the stenciling part is like.  You need to cover the stencils around the one you are using, so you only paint the one you want.  I started out covering them with paper towels but switched to duct tape, that way I didn't have to keep changing the paper towels.  Usually after I sprayed the paint I would have to use a paper towel to blot the excess paint.  It really wasn't too difficult, my only problem was I should have been more diligent in measuring my pattern.  I made a few mistakes, but one really cool thing about this paint is you can actually vacuum it up if you make a mistake!  I definitely had to do that a few times, but in the end my rug turned out great.

Here is my finished rug: 

I decided to have it say "hello" instead of the traditional "welcome".  I then went with a chevron pattern because it's fun and I love geometric patterns.  All in all I really enjoyed trying this kit and I am very happy with my finished product.  It is a great addition to my entry way!

How would you design your own Vecco rug?
