-----Infomercial 
Do you have 30 Dollars and 30 Minutes? 
If you answered yes..then YOU TOO can be a lucky owner of your Very Own Stenciled Outdoor/Indoor Rug!
That's right Folks up next is a wonderful fantastic clear as a whistle tutorial to create your very own customized rug!
Take it away Jen!

{Crowd goes Wild..Clappers are Clapping there little hands away}

WUZZZZZZ UP! Jen here I am so so very happy you came by for a fun tutorial! I can't tell you how Quick, Easy and Oh So Cute this project was! So let's cut to the rug already.. or maybe we should cut a rug? Maybe later, ok.. first we need to make the rug!

So... I found this fantastic idea over at East Coast Creative, and let me just say those girls are crazy creative! I fell in love with their tutorial on stenciling an outdoor rug. Fell so hard that I ordered the rug right after I saw the post. {link to order yours!}
My rug{only $17 bucks!} was delivered 5 days later.
And here we are.
Done.. and I Love it!




I took care of business in my garage! Laid out that rug and grabbed all my supplies!




And away I went! 4 Steps- Easy Peasy Peeps!

1. Lay out your rug 

2. Spray some adhesive on the backside of your stencil, and lay on the rug.{Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils..love them!}

3. Grab that White Spray Paint Can and go at it!{Use your grocery bags to block around the stencil so you don't get the overspray}

4. Stand back and check it out! {yes this is a step. Do it!}



So recently I updated my backyard to get it "Summer Readycreating a cozier sitting area... and NOW with my new fun rug.. it's even COZIER!



Whatcha Think? Cozier is Coziest Aye?




Meet ya out back in 5.. it's Cut the Rug Time!

-- Also you can see how I created that fun bench here!

  32. Wow, I can't believe how easy you make that look. P.S. it's looks great on your porch. It reminds me of my grandma's porch where we use to play as kids - the memory making type.
