Spray Paint a Rug? Sure.
I wanted to jazz up a rug for my front deck. But without spending any money, as usual.
So I took three items to use as stencils...a pizza round, a Dollar Store plate and a saucer. Then I used spray paint I already had on hand.
I used the bright turquoise spray paint I'd already used on my deck chairs. Deep breath and here I go!
Flat black and flat white spray paint which I already had in my stash. The cheap kind from Walmart. Here's a tip-I wiped the edges of the plate and saucer after each use to remove the wet paint from the previous color. This prevents "drip rings" on your rug. Also, I should have worn latex gloves!
I used brown craft paint to touch up the brown spray paint which did not cover well at all. Yum, chocolate brown craft paint in a sundae glass.
Crikey! I LOVE how this came out! And I didn't have to spend any money, which is always a good thing in my book!
Here's the boring tan rug before. What a difference some spray paint can make!
