Walk On The Wild Side With A DIY Zebra Rug


Do you walk on the wild side sometimes? When Jessica was in High School, she got on a wild streak with her room decor. Her room was bold with tiger and cheetah prints! No, it was not manageable splashes of the animal print – it was an entire comforter, large pillows, bath towels and a rug. We all go through periods in our lives, and sometimes look back and say, “What in the world was I thinking?” This is one of those periods.

We hope this isn’t one of those moments, but after seeing many expensive zebra rugs online, we decided to walk on the wild side once again and make an affordable version of the zebra rug. We like the way it turned out, and happy we paid less than half the prices online.
