a hop, skip and a rug

i am loving area rugs right now...such a great way to infuse some personality and texture into a room, and cb2 and west elm are really killing it these days. i'm thinking, though, the floor isn't the only place these beauties can lay - how about using them as wall hangings, or even as beautiful (and soft) headboards? you can use a curtain rod and curtain clips (they make heavy duty ones for heavier curtains, or rugs as it were) or you can use nails in each corner to hang the rug.

the hopscotch rug above and these others are from cb2.

and we talked a few weeks ago about west elm's rugs. here are some i think would be perf on a wall as well as a floor.

the zebra runner from walmart's new hometrends line that i mentioned on friday would be a great, cheap option (like, $39 cheap).

even if you're not in the market for a new rug, it's fun to think about different ways of using ones you already have. what are your thoughts?
