sometimes creative reuse of old things can result in something “better” than the original… ABC Carpet

“Like many bloggers out there, I loved the Color Reform rugs from ABC Carpet, but alas, I do not have $10,000 to spend on a rug. Anthropologie came out with their version of the over-dyed rug, but it paled in comparison with ABC Carpet’s version and still cost a pretty penny.
I did a little research on over dying wool and growing more confident in my rug dying abilities, I thought “how hard could it be?” I had an old, 5 x 7 wool rug lying around that had some stains…seemed the perfect test subject for this diy project. This is important to note: The rug is a medium piled rug…I tried over-dying a low-pile rug and it didn’t take very well.
The rug turned a rich, purple shade that I absolutely love and it gives my living room a much-needed pop of color.”
