DIY: Dip Dyed Rug
The DIY darling behind P.S. I Made This tears a page from her latest tome P.S. You're Invited with this exclusive look at one of her favourite projects. "After my trip to Morocco, I was gaga over ornate and colourful rugs," Domesek explains, adding, "I couldn't bring home enough." Here, she shares how to get the look of those richly saturated carpets without scouring the Mediterranean coast. Start with a boring old beige floor covering, suffuse it with liquid dye, and you'll end up with a vibrant accent piece akin to one of the much-coveted pieces in this Colour Reform Collection. See below for the simple step-by-step and get extra project tips from Erica herself in this expert video tutorial.
