With all the sprucing up in the backyard, it was time for another change!
I’ve had this rug on my back patio for about 8 years. I leave it out all year-long thru rain and intense heat, and it has held up surprisingly well. It still looks pretty good….from afar! If you try to pick it up to move it…..it cracks!
Very crisp from the elements so it was time for a change.
I picked up this really, really inexpensive rug from Home Depot for $17 dollars!
Using some paint I had and a foam roller brush, I found the center of the rug and started my stenciling there!
It took a little pressure to get a deep color but it was super-duper easy!
I finished it off with a couple of coats of spray on poly to protect it from the elements.
Now, remember……this rug was $17 and it’s not intended to withstand years of weather. I do not plan on taking it in during the winter since that is the season we spend most of our time outdoors. Since I like to change things so often, even if it lasts me one year, for $17, I will be happy!
I’ll keep you posted on how she holds up!
Until next time……
