Are you familiar with "gel" rugs?
Gel rugs have a spongy thickness, and they're supposed to make standing for any length of time; say washing dishes, a little more comfortable.
I've seen them in lots of catalogs for anywhere from $70 - $100. Luckily, I found mine a few years ago at TJ Maxx for about $20.
I recently saw this gel rug 'cover' advertised in the Solutions catalog.
It inspired me to paint my rug.
I decided to update mine with a chevron pattern.
The rug has a basket weave pattern already, so it was really easy to tape off for the chevron pattern.
I used Rust-Oleum spray paint that I had on hand (ivory silk), and added
a top coat to protect the finish .
I may add a coat of polyurethane later just to be sure it's sealed well.
This is what I got when I peeled off the tape....like Christmas morning!

Have a wonderful weekend!
