Repurpose Shelf Liner Remnants

This creative use for shelf liner is a great way to repurpose leftover shelf liner remnants. I love creative ways to repurpose & reuse items. This creative idea came after a super cute area rug in my kitchen became a slip & fall hazard.

IT GAVE ZERO GRIPS

The rug just didn’t have a “grip” of what I wanted. Haha, get it? Safety aside, I loved how the rug made the space feel home-y. However, I knew I couldn’t leave the rug “as-is” since it could turn hazardous; yet, I didn’t want to wait to display the rug until I bought a rug pad.

Sometimes I want things like right damn now… & I didn’t want to wait forever until I bought a rug pad.

WHAT YOU NEED:

A REPURPOSING IDEA IS BORN

Thankfully with a little “out of the box thinking”& some “redneck ingenuity”, I had a brilliant idea to get exactly what I wanted… like right now. I decided to try the leftover shelf liner remnants (from my kitchen cabinets & drawers) a second life as a rug pad.

Guess what? It was total success! The shelf liner worked brilliantly as a rug pad & the best part is that I didn’t even have to cut any of the shelf liner remnants. These shelf liner remnants were meant to be used for this exact purpose. 🙂

USE THIS, NOT THAT

Just a suggestion & a helpful tip, make sure the shelf liner has a “grip” on both sides.

The type of shelf liner that’s smooth on one side {like these} will not work as a repurposed rug pad. 

A SUCCESSFUL CREATIVE USE FOR SHELF LINER

This shelf liner is super effective as a rug pad. I’ve had this rug with my “repurposed rug pad” in the same spot in my kitchen for months & it has not budged.

Unless you come to my house & lift up my area rug, you would never know my “secret”.

I’m so glad it worked!!!! I saved myself from practicing patience & I also saved myself money from buying an actual rug pad.

The next time you see an awesome area rug without a “grip”, don’t shy away from buying it! Repurpose inexpensive shelf liner as a rug pad to prevent any slip & falls.

Get Creative & Repurpose!

Love, Peace & Happiness,
