How to Create & Paint a Seafoam Rug

Create an easy and breezy floor cloth with painter's tape and paint.

DIFFICULTY: Easy

Overview

Create an easy and breezy floor cloth with painter's tape and paint. Floor cloths are great for summertime porch rugs. They catch dirt and sand that comes in on sneakers and flip flops. Use them to keep entry doors and walkways tidy.

1

Tape

Spray a canvas cloth with cream-colored paint and let dry completely.

Use a ruler to create even and parallel stripes with painter's tape on the canvas. Patterns are easy to create and design using only painter's tape and a sprayer. Think argyle, trellis, blocks and plaids . . . they are all easy and possible designs that you can mark off with the tape and spray over with your favorite paint colors. Tape and paint create an instant and refreshing summer pattern.
