I even like your dining room chairs! Mix-and-match is the way to be! And the rug is flippin awesome as well. Kudos!

Your rug is beautiful, I am trying to do something similar, but am winging it using leftover latex wall paint.  I've only done the base coat but it is not as glossy as yours appears- Do you think this will work?  My idea is to use paisley stencils I made-  in a random pattern.
 
I would appreciate any feedback!  Wonderful work!

you should be fine - i used a combination of several different left over paints as well as the fabric. your paisley idea sounds great. i hope you'll post pics.  what makes mine look glossy is the sealant i used for the final coat. this is what protects it and makes it suitable for traffic so you don't want to skip this step. i used a water based semigloss polycrylic made by minwax. it's not terribly expensive, doesn't take much to do several coats on the whole rug, and is way worth the time and money.

Not only is your rug great, but I love how you have all different chairs around your dining table.  Should I ever have an apartment large enough to accommodate a table, I think I am going to do the same thing!

So, this is gorgeous! I am moving soon and my new DR definitely needs one. A question - would it work to add batting (or something?) to the back to make it slightly squishy, soft, carpet-like? Maybe attach it to a carpet remnant so it has a little give? Am i making sense? Let me know what y'all think about that.

Thanks for the great tutorial - I tried making one using an old vinyl window shade - it worked well but was not heavy enough to stay put.  I found "Hold-It for Rugs"  made by Duck at Home Depot - it works great.  I think I will try vinyl scraps next.  Thanks.
