Changing the Colors On a Rug

My husband got a nice area rug for the bathroom but the colors didn't quite gel. Salmon stripes when pink would be better. So I took a permanent marker in hot pink and went over the smaller salmon stripes, leaving the larger ones. Voila! It now goes with the dusty pink bathroom tile!

How ingenious of you! I would never have thought of that. I know you're pleased with your "new" rug.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for reminding me that I can do just THAT to buy a bargain rug that has both blue and green in it, the two colors of my awful bath.

I found border print paper curbside, two old wooden

shelves, and an unusual large framed print....All I needed was the rug to tie it all together. My vanity

top is OLD odd-colored avocado but the colors in all the small cheap rugs I found, even curbside, are bluish. The walls are painted dark beige. Sink/toilet/tub are white. I've found decent small rugs, but the stripes never had the right colors. This will complete the only frugal plan I can follow.I have TONS of various colored permanent markers that I've found. God bless you.
