I found it to be very boring and solid in color, lacking the ‘statement’ that I wanted it to make. So I set out to give it a little boost in life!
Supplies you’ll need:
Boring solid color rug Stencil Can o’ spray paint Painters tape Measuring device
Using a large stencil we picked up at Hobby Lobby for a nursery project, I started laying out my increments. This was a stretch for me, for I’ve become very dependent on my better half and his mathematic skillz. But I found that the stencil fit across the 5′ side of the rug 3 times
and on the 8′ side, 5 times! It wasn’t a perfect fit on either side, but with a stencil, you have the benefit of having give on either side. Allowing a little extra room between increments, or squeezing them just a little closer together.
Since there are to be 3 stencils on the 5′ side, I divided the rug evenly with tape going long-ways. Losing the width of the tape ended up being ok because there was some extra space when laying out the stencil 3 times. Make sense? No?
Slap on your stencil kids! I used a can of Rustoleum Satin Espresso spray paint we had lying around, but you could use any color, any brand. On the first couple, I took the time to tape and cover with newspaper, but I found that this was unnecessary, because there was almost no overspray if you’re
careful. I was pleasantly surprised by how crisp the lines turned out! Continue around the rug, being careful to use proper increments based on your measurements.
