I'm not too crafty but I decided to go ahead and give this a go. Our aisle is huge, it measures at 5 feet wide and 80 feet long. Most aisle runners are only 3 feet (3 1/2 if you're lucky) wide. So I had to special order this fabric. Anyhoos, I decided to go ahead and give this a go and do it ourselves. Our friend (who I'll call, "N") was an art major so he helped a lot. He free handed EVERYTHING. I told him to just print our the monogram and then trace it but he was being stubborn and wanted to do it his way. Took forever to trace it but the tracing came out nice still. Now we started to paint but we can't finish because we have to let the paint dry before we move it to start on the bottom section. Oh and I should add, I actually mixed the paint myself to get that color!! I just used red, blue, and white acrylic paint.

I have some photos for you guys if ya wanna see what we've done so far.

A few more photos:














Once it dries tomorrow, I'll continue to paint the bottom of the "R" and our names and dates in black at the bottom. 'll update more as we progress. Thanks for letting me share.
