DIY overdyed rug

I normally try to post original content here, but this one is too good not to share.

I was searching for anybody who had tried dying an old rug. I'm wanting to attempt it, but then cut up various rugs and re-sew them together like the ones from http://moonishco.com - I love the look, but not the price tag. I'll let you know if I ever get the project done. Thanks for linking to Kristen, I'll have to check it out.
