Rug Redo - Transform an ordinary outdoor rug from blah to beautiful with this simple stencil project. Make your own stencil by tracing a shape onto poster board. Cut out the stencil, then place it on the rug using painter's tape. Using good-quality outdoor paint and a small roller, roll paint over the rug. Remove the stencil, reposition, and repeat until you're satisfied with the look.
