Welcome to the second week of the $100 Room Challenge organized by Erin from Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry where a group of bloggers will be transforming a room and we can not spend more than $100. I love this challenge because these bloggers participating are passionate about having a beautiful home without overspending.
I am making over a spare bedroom at our renovated lake house. We gutted the room, replaced walls, stained concrete floors, and threw in some second-hand bunk beds to get us by.
It is time to make this room look better and be more comfortable for the guest. The lake house is 40 minutes from my home so I will be making most of the decor at my home and taking it to the lake.
There is not enough money in the budget for a new rug so I will be getting creative and making a DIY Dyed Tassel Rug.
My inspiration for my rug cost $369. This rug is exactly what I have in mind for this room. Our floors are espresso stained concrete and a dark rug does not show up on the dark floor so I want a rug that is light-colored. I wanted to make my tassels a lighter grey color. The fur rug will go with the rustic cabin look that I am going for.
I purchased a rug remnant several years ago for $6.95 that I had not found a need for until now. Jasmine the Boxer wants the rug for herself.
I pulled out all my leftover yarn from projects to make tassels and choose the one that I thought best matched the rug. You can see how to make tassels on my DIY Shower Curtain Tassels post.
Rit Dye in the color grey cost and I followed the package directions.
Let the tassels sit in the pan of Rit Dye for 10 minutes until they were the color desired.
I am heading to the lake tomorrow to paint the room.
Thank you for visiting the $100 Room Challenge and my DIY Dyed Tassel Rug.
So cute and what a great price! Gorgeous puppy too. 😀
