Painted Outdoor Rug with Quatrefoil Design

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!

Gina was inspired by the Surya Frontier Quatrefoil Jet Black Hand Woven Wool Rug from Zinc Door.
