Make Your own Outdoor Rug


By |

Yippee for warmer temps and outdoor living. I can’t wait to get outside with the family and host a few outdoor gatherings! Especially since I’ve been working on my screened porch and giving it a little makeover. More on that coming later this week.

Well, I loved it so much, I wanted another for my newly-madeover screened porch. And, once again, I ordered one of these fabulous rugs from Home Depot for the job. These awesome rugs are a generous 6’X8′, and still only $17.87! I’ve never seen a better deal on a basic rug. And it’s the perfect choice for adding your own design. They don’t sell these in stores, but the shipping is fast. And don’t forget to use Ebates to order to get an extra 3% cash back along with any available coupon codes!

Once your rug arrives, choose your design and get busy! On my latest rug, I wanted a nice wide border, so I taped it off at 8 inches all around with blue painters tape, being careful to smooth it down really well.

As for paint, I chose Fireworks by Sherwin Williams because it was just the deep coral color I had in mind. Like I do for so many other projects, I just bought a sample quart which was just the right amount for this rug. Don’t forget to lay the rug on a drop cloth before painting.

A foam roller does a great job of covering without causing the paint to saturate the rug.

Because I’m not very patient, the hardest part of the project for me is waiting overnight for the paint to dry.

The reveal of the porch is coming later this week! If you make one of these rugs, I’d love to see it. Email me your pics and I may feature them in a future post!
