What’s a girl to do when she can’t spend hundreds on a pretty, patterned rug for her front porch? Paint one of course! Check out how Gina of The Shabby Creek Cottage transformed this $20 Wal-mart rug into a statement-making piece for her porch. The ever resourceful Gina made the quatrefoil stencil all be herself using a cereal bowl and a piece of cardboard, traced it onto the rug with chalk, and then went over it with paint. Easy peasy and cheap to boot!
