Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug

I didn't want to count how many months it's been since I last posted anything.
But one of my favorite bloggers at Design Manifest,
just admitted she was in a design slump, which inspired me to come clean as well.
When money is tight, it's not as much fun to decorate.  Is it? 
I find it really hard to get excited when I can't do anything other than move things around. 
I've done some super-duper inexpensive projects that if I can muster up the energy,
will post some pictures of. 
A couple nights ago, I took a sharpie to my old and dirty ivory shag rug.
I've always loved the super expensive I could never
afford a real vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs...
60 minutes and a couple glasses of wine later, here's my DIY version:

I took these with my phone.  The lighting is crap and it's not the best faux rug job ever...
but hopefully this will fuel my love of design and I'll see you again sooner than later.
