I was feeling crafty this weekend when I came across this really pretty area rug at TJ Maxx. I’ve been looking for something to hang above the cabinets in my girls’ playroom for awhile, and while an area rug isn’t typically what I’d choose, this particular rug was so pretty! I knew I could make it awesome with a few supplies – most I had on hand.
I picked up a couple yards of pretty white fringe from Hobby Lobby and hot glued two rows onto the bottom edge of the rug. Then I placed a pre-stained dowel rod (from our wedding!) at the top of the rug and hot glued the top edge over it to create a pocket for the rod. All that was left was tying on the string and hanging it on the wall.
Voila! A do-it-yourself wall hanging and super cute playroom decor. That adorable basket (also from Hobby Lobby) holds our wooden train set. I love practical toy storage that’s attractive, too!
