Drop Cloth Spray Paint Rug

Easy

I took a plain old canvas drop cloth and turned it into a colorful rug with a little spray paint. All it takes is some measuring, patiently taping off the pattern and then spray away.

    I love the colors also. But does it stay flat? Could possibly have safety issues . If it was outside on the deck the wind would blow it very easily because it would be so light.

    Does this need to be sealed??? I would personally be using it inside.

    Do you need to wash the drop cloth before painting it and would this hold up on an outside covered porch? Thank you

      I washed it just to be safe and ours held up in the garage so I would think it should hold up on a covered patio.

    What about staying completely flat

      I believe I taped it

      down with double sided tape. Honestly, I didn’t use it long enough to know how it held up. We moved shortly after and didn’t take it in the move.
