Our church pew makeover for our patio has been a huge success. I hope you have enjoyed seeing how my neighbors transformed their church pews as well!
I wanted to give you a quick and easy tutorial on how I finished off my space with an outdoor rug that everyone is surprised to find out that I painted it and created it. (I will take that as a compliment)
Outdoor rug - comes in a gray color (purchased at Home Depot or Lowes)
Paint in the colors you want/like
Step 1: Lay out your rug and decide how wide you want your stripes to be and how far apart. I made the blueish stripes wider and the creme stripes thinner. Measure those out and use the painters tape to mark off your stripes.
Step 2: Start painting! My daughter got in the rolling action with me. We did all the creme strips first and then switched the blue painted ones. The "nap" of the rug is super easy to paint over.
Let it dry.....
Step 3: Peel back the tape to reveal your fabulous new rug! We didn't have ANY problems with the paint bleeding under the tape but I also was careful to not put to much on at a time. We absolutely love it and it was really easy and inexpensive.
Have you painted a rug before?
