Create Stripes With Painter’s Tape
Start at one corner of the rug. Place strips of tape across the entire rug to create stripes.
Create Perpendicular Stripes
After you’ve taped stripes on half of the rug, add some stripes perpendicular to these on the other side of the rug.
Start Painting Stripes
Paint several stripes with your first color. Try to pick ones randomly around the rug.
Continue Painting Stripes
Fill in empty stripes with your three remaining colors. Let the paint dry overnight.
Once paint is dry, pull off all of the painter’s tape. Voila! You have a custom-made colorful geometric rug to jazz up your patio space.
