I got a 40 something dollar rug from Walmart in a pecan color and used some Waverly stencils (not exactly this one, I can't find it on Amazon) in different colors with acrylic. I'm not sure if it needs a few more circles or not, but I don't have time to do it before our visitors arrive. I'm a little hopeful that as we set the couch edge on the rug and time passes, it will lay down better. :-/ I think it looks better stenciled than plain, but I'm not sure I like the rug in general. Still, you can't beat 40 something dollars for an 8 x 10 area rug.
