Stenciled Deck Rug

We built our new house in the middle of a prairie hay field. This means we have a ton of wind at least until all our planted trees mature in about 10 years!! I have always wanted a beautiful deck with a pretty rug but unless it was nailed down and was pet hair proof it is not going to happen. I can however have a painted/stenciled one. Here is how I did it ...

Using this large prosperity mandala stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and Fusion Mineral Paint I created the rug of my dreams.

Like any painted project, prep is needed.. first step was to sweep

and scrub my deck where I planed to put the new "rug".

I got my supplies ready
- my prosperity Cutting Edge Stencil - a mini foam roller and tray - a hammer and nail (to affix stencil in place) - my Fusion Mineral Paint colors; renfrew blue, azure and lamp white

Finding the center of where I wanted the "rug" I nailed it in place.
