Design: Over Dyed Area Rugs

Hello MBG readers! Brooke Jones bringing you an interesting trend, over dyed area rugs. I mean, who said old dogs can't learn new tricks? Over dyed area rugs are just that-- vintage rugs that have seen better days that are re-dyed in bright cheery new colors.
 

They almost look like abstract paintings for your floors, don't you think? These rugs would work great to update a traditional room or add a bit of history to modern spaces: a win-win no matter where you use them! Here are my favorite picks from ABC Carpet & Home:
