Creating a beautiful painted outdoor rug is a great addition to your outdoor space. Well, when ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot asked me to participate in their, “Get It, Got It, Go”  summer blog-hop.


I knew this project would be perfect! This year’s blog-hop is being hosted by Kate at Centsational Girl, so be sure to check out the other fabulous projects here: Get It, Got It, Go

Painted Outdoor Rug

With just a few hours of work you can have this fun project completed!

I started off with a rug that already had somewhat of a diamond pattern going, which meant taping it off would be SO much easier.

I went to Home Depot and picked up some ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Original Multi-Use 2090 Painter’s Tape… love this stuff!

So I laid out my tape pressing it down firmly onto the rug.

Once my design was finished it was time to paint… one of my favorite things!

I decided to go with blue, green and white… but you obviously could pick whatever colors you love!

I used outdoor acrylic paints for this project, since the current plan is to have it on our outdoor patio, although I’m thinking it would be super cute in our kitchen nook too!

I used a stencil brush to pounce (blotting up and down motion) near the tape line and then brushed on the paint to fill in the center of the diamonds.

You can see I put a little dab of tape in the sections I didn’t want to paint to make sure I didn’t mess up.

I started with all the blue diamonds and then went onto white, then green.

Once I was finished with the final color I let it dry for about 30 minutes and then gently pulled off the painter’s tape.

  1. Your project is really unique. It is great idea and colors used by you are really beautiful. Painting outdoor rug is really good addition to our outer space. Thanks for giving us this great idea.

  2. Do the colors bleed or wash out completely when it rains? Great idea if the weather doesn’t mess it up. Love the colors!

    1. Gwen I used outdoor acrylic paints (sometimes they are labeled at pottery paint)… they are designed to withstand the outdoors. So far… so good 🙂

  3. I was very inspired by the outdoor rug project, I think I will be attempting to make one this weekend..thanks for the idea 🙂

  4. I’m sure excited to see your rug idea! I love it!
    I haven’t been able to find an affordable rug for my screened in porch.

  5. We are going to be taking down a chain link fence and replacing it with a new wood fence. I think it will be a fun project.

  6. What a great rug!

    I joined the Home Depot Fans page and could really use that gift card! 😉 I bought an older home in April and my summer plans are DIY-EVERYTHING! I would love to update my entryway with this gift card! Thanks for the give-away!

  7. wahhh I want a rug like that!! 😛 I love your burlap lampshade! I’ve put it on my “to-do” list, as I REALLY want a new lampshade!

  8. I joined!! I love this outdoor painted rug and will be doing this for our new patio. ALso love the DIY bathroom storage bench which we could really use!!

  9. I love the rug!
    I’ve been obsessed with working on my garden and landscaping this summer. This rug with yellows, greens and blues would look amazing on my deck. 🙂

  10. love this rug!! pretty colors!

    my bff, who i have been trying to get interested in crafting for quite a while, is all excited for us to make adirondack chairs next month! i think i can talk her into more from there….

  11. I’m obsessed with this! I wanted to paint the actual cement on our patio, but hubs wasn’t into that idea! Lol! So this is the perfect project for me!!!

    One question though: where did the rug come from and how much was it? Was it also from Home Depot? I didn’t see anything about it in your post, but I’m reading from my phone and may have missed something!

    Thank you for the project and gift card opportunity!

  12. love home depot, love your rug, that is what i want to try next….. have done so many cool projects too many favs to mention them all! 🙂

  13. I am inspired by the Burlap Lampshade with Grommets and Ribbon project, gonna try this one soon!

  14. I love your no sew pillows! Crafting can take a lot of time and I like when I can find quick ways to make an impact in my house!

    Like the others, I wasn’t able to sign up for the fan program – I googled it and went to their website but still wasn’t able to locate it.

  15. The link for the fan club didn’t work for me, it keeps rerouting me back to this blog post when I click on it. My fav summer project is the freezer paper USA print!


  16. I have been looking for the perfect outdoor rug. It never occurred to me to make my own! I am going to have to do this! I am also have trouble finding the Home Depot Fan Program. I even googled it and came up with nothing!

  17. Loving the rug!! The colors you chose are fantastic as well. I am having the same issue as Lauren, the link to join HD Fan Page is not directing me there.
