Painted Drop Cloth Rug

For months I've been looking for a rug to go under my table and everything I loved was around $500. Which is a lot of money. So I decided to make my own.

One Drop Cloth $11.00 (I got mine from Lowes. It was 6x9)
Blue Painters tape $5.00
Pint of latex Paint $Free had on hand (I used Granite Grey by glidden)
Paint tray and mini roller. $2.00 (got at Lowes)

First you are going to lay out your drop cloth where you want to paint it. (If it has some hard wrinkles you will want to put the drop cloth in the dryer for a few minutes or on a de-wrinkle cycle)

Then you are going to tape on your design. I did easy stripes.

After you have taped your design you are going to start painting the rug.

Let dry and peel off tape. Run it through a wash cycle and dry cycle.

Holy moly an easy painted rug for under $20

I love how it is Rustic and not perfect... Just what I need with kids!

*EDIT ANother great thing I learned today?? YOU CAN WASH THE RUG!!!! GOTTA LOVE KIDSPin It
