I am not the first nor the last to stencil a rug. It is such a cheap way to make a graphic impact in a seating area. The girls from East Coast Creative guest posted here on their stenciled outdoor rug. After I hit publish I immediately went and bought the $18 indoor/outdoor rug from Home Depot. Add in three cans of spray paint and some fabric sealer and I have finally completed my outdoor living area.

Once you blast stencil spray on the back it is a simple process. You spray, move the stencil and spray again. After it is dry I gave my rug a coat of fabric seal spray to give it added protection and to cut down on sun fade.
It is the month of August and the summer is nearing the end but my outdoor living area is finally complete.
I have spent a lot of time and money out here this year and I am absolutely loving the way it turned out.
