DIY Painted Outdoor Rug


I searched high and low for a rug that I liked. I didn’t even see one outside of my price range that called my name.
So, I took matters into my own hands and decided I’d create something I would like…and for a fraction of the cost.
I found a 6 ft x 8 ft outdoor rug on Amazon for $32 and decided I'd paint a design on it.
I also purchased 3 inch wide painters tape and Rust-Oleum Universal Spray Paint (in Satin white).
Then started taping and spraying!
It took a total of 3 cans of spray paint and an entire roll of painters tape.
But when I pulled back the tape, it was REALLY FUN to see the new look!

    Can you do this to drop cloth? I have seen rugs done that way, but sealed with poky and assuming add a rug mat underside

    When it rains does the spray paint run or wash off?
