Recycling Old Towels
I am in desperate need of dog beds! We took out the carpet that was stained, smelly and wouldn't come clean in our rental. I painted the floor just to add a little protection. The landlord doesn't want to put new carpet in with pets being allowed, so I am on the hunt for some other free alternatives. I have a few idea's that involve paint, stencils and free upcycled mat's... But in the mean time my dog's are constantly on the prowl for somewhere softer to lay.
So I thought about the many falling apart old towels I have...
Then the thought hit me...
Why not make a rug out of them!
Perfect for the dog's to curl up on, and I can still toss them in the washer to clean them without it being a major deal!
I have two different idea's, One is a braided rug and the other is a weaved rug.
So I am working on them today and will come back to post pictures of the finished projects!
