spray painted rug

This week I am attempting to spruce up our front porch. It is in desperate need of some lovin' and crying out for a pop of color.

However this is a busy busy week leaving me little free time to work on my porch. Plus it's the last week of school and we need to make teachers gifts by Friday. No pressure right!

I did find some time today to squeeze in one little easy project. I picked up a plain rug and a can of spray paint at Home Depot yesterday. 

I feel in love with this pretty blue color, it just screamed SUMMER to me!

I used some painters tape to make lines and then sprayed away.

Now I can check one project off my porch to do list. Still lots of little projects I want to do out there. Hoping I can get it finished up by next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love it with your wreath. It's crazy how fast the school year went. I'm sure whatever you come up with as teacher gifts they will love. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wedbesdays.

  2. I have that same spray paint...and now I am feeling inspired. Great use for what you already have!

  3. Such a fun rug. I need to do this! Thanks for the idea:>

  4. Your rug looks great! Thanks for sharing this idea - I have a large outdoor area rug that is faded and needs to be updated. I might have to try this.

  5. How fun! Spray paint can do soo much! Thanks for sharing at {Homemade By You}

  6. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while; like a last name or last name initial. Thanks for sharing and showing that it really is simple. That is an awesome spray paint color. A couple weeks ago I actually stood in Home Depot holding up spray paint cans to my shoes in order to find that right color.


  7. I love your project, it turned out so cute! I agree on the blue, it's perfect. Would love it if you visited and followed me back too!

    Hugs, Tanya :)

  11. What a easy makeover that packs a lot of punch! I love the colour and stripes. I've been trying to find an inexpensive door mat to makeover so that I can add some purple to my porch :)
