Stripe-y Rug

I've been craving a new rug for the living room, but even clearanced rugs or the good deals on Overstock are way out of my price range right now. Then I spotted this photo in my inspiration folder {I can't remember where I got it, but it's tagged with Margot Austin}. I LOVE the sunny stripes, and can easily see myself mimicking this with a few colorful Ikea runners overlapped to create a casual pattern. Anyone else have inexpensive floor covering solutions?

I love this rug, wish I had a solution, I am making a rug for C-tober's room too after not being able to find one I love for a reasonable price.

Dragonfly, that is the IKEA bed.

What a cheerful sunny room.

I think your rug plan is a good plan.

Did you see this via Design Sponge? Thought of you immediately, why not do it in Yellow?

You could sew together bath mats, towels, or even place mats, but Ikea would be the easier solution for sure.
