I dont know about you, but when I sit and stare at my carpets too long, I find them so boring. I had never imagined actually finding a way to do something about that boring carpet, other than throw a decorative rug over it, until I found Vecco. Vecco is a paint that you can decorate your carpets with. Or instead of buying that expensive decorative run, you can buy the cheap plain one, the use some Vecco to decorate it with. I was sent a sample pack of Vecco to try out. This stuff is awesome and I love that I can transform a very boring carpet and room into something that I can really enjoy looking at and be proud of. I can be proud not only for my carpet looking good and decorative, but I can feel good because I did it! Vecco is not hard to use at all. The kit and the Vecco site have instructions that are easy to follow. I am not a artist, but they have templates that you can use as stencils to make a very dull and ordinary rug and carpet into a masterpiece, lol!! There are designs that you can use in your kids rooms as well, so you can decorate and make every room in the house different or the same!!

treatments. Specially-made templates from Vecco™ range from basic
