If you can’t afford to buy a rug for $300; stencil one that will look as good as a $300 dollar rug. To stencil a 5×7 rug is easy and it’s something you will be very proud of. I purchased my rug from Walmart.com and my paint from Lowes.com. “MyColor” paint washes up very easy and it was so easy to work with. Oh, I purchased the stencil from Hobby Lobby…using a coupon of course.
First I measured the width of the rug. Then I measured the width of the stencil from one cut-out point to the other cut-out point (not the edge). I divided the width of the stencil by the width of the rug and I ended up with 3 (your number could be different)…with the remaining inches I divided them by 2 and that left me with 5 1/4 inches and this is where I placed the stencil at the cut-out point from the edge of the rug. I taped the stencil on the rug and stenciled one row at a time to the end of the rug.
When I came to the edge of the rug I put newspaper under the rug to protect the floor; and I taped the stitched edge of the rug because I didn’t want the edge to have paint on it. Then I finished the sides off.
Finish! Now that was easy!
