Decorating your porch DIY

In one the previos posts, we have discussed how to make a rug out drop cloth. This time we would make a different project, of painting a rug right on the porch! For this project you would need the exterior paint, painter’s tape, tape measure, 2-inch paintbrush.

First of all, look around the area that you want your rug to be situated. Let’s suppose it is a porch and so, where exactly do you want your rug to be? What are the color present in that porch, or what colors you want them to be? Once you have figured out the rug color, you need to decide on the background color. While you certainly might want to leave the same color, you might would want to update it to your needs.

When you figured out the background and even painted the porch floor, measure the rug area and tape the borders. Now you are free to paint the rug, and don’t worry about borders, they are covered by the tape! Now, a decent rug should have a border, so once you rug is dry make sure to reposition the tape and paint the borders! And the last step would be removing the tape, once everything is dry. Easy, isn’t it, but so rewarding!
