So today I have finished off some rugs for the floor, to add to the effect I'm looking for. Began making these a while back, but only finished them today because I just could not think how to paint them.
Then inspiration came from our toilet (where else!!!) where there is an incense burner. On its side it has a 5 pointed star, and it set me thinking. The rest followed from there.
Will post some shots in position tomorrow with a couple of bearskin rugs I thought might work as well.
