Painting Throw Rugs

Can a throw rug be repainted? and how? I have some perfectly good throw rugs that I want to repaint. Any ideas?

Yes, take them outside & spray paint them, good luck.

Actually, fabric paint or dye would be a better idea, as spray paint will crack and flake off over time. :-)

Yes, rugs can be painted. Use fabric paint. Apply light paint and let it dry, then reapply. It is best to shake your rugs out or vacuum with a low powered stick vacuum. I painted a chair once. Note, paint will never feel smooth like fabric.
