Last night my friend Mark & I went to the opening of the Vecco Design Studio in Lincoln Park.  It was a fun event hosted by Monica Peterson from various HGTV programs.

Vecco is a spray paint type product that you can use to paint/customize your rugs or carpet.  They have a bunch of pre-designed templates that you can purchase, some are whimsical and clearly meant for kids room, and others are more traditional.  I much prefer the geometric designs & could see this as an option for my rug dilemma.  

How it works 

I have a sample kit & am looking forward to testing it out!  This kind of stuff tends to scare me, but you can actually vacuum up the product if you mess up or don't like it.  Awesome.  Once you have it just right, you spray a protective sealant and you're done.  I'll let you know how it turns out!
