"Good old Martha taught us that rather than buying those ridiculously expensive anti-slip mats for a rug, just turn it over and run a few lines of acrylic-latex caulk every 6 inches or so. Let dry and flip over and your rug wont be going anywhere!"
DIY :: Mercury Glass look : Works better if you spray water/vinegar combination on outside of glass BEFORE spraying with "Looking Glass". After spraying let dry only about 15-30 seconds and then blot dry. Don't be afraid to apply pressure to bubbles - otherwise it doesn't show up. I did 3-4 rounds per glass piece, depending on how dark or light I wanted the effect.
