Paint Background Deck
Pour exterior paint into pan liner placed in paint pan. Add roller cover to paint roller, then add two thorough coats of base color to deck.
Measure and Tape
Once base color is dry to the touch, use tape measure to determine dimensions of painted area rug. Jot dimensions down on the notepad. Referring to notepad, mark rug dimensions directly onto deck with pencil and straightedge. Using pencil marks as a guide, press painter's tape directly along outside edge of mark.
