Hello PS Readers! It’s Megan, from The Homes I Have Made, back with another fun and simple tutorial that I hope will help make your home a bit brighter for Spring! The second the calendar officially rolled over to Spring a few weeks ago, I excitedly began pulling out our bright-colored outdoor furniture and accessories. One project that I didn’t get to last year was some sort of ground covering or rug for our covered porch, so it was at the top of my To Do List once it began to warm up!
Let me show you exactly how I did it!
I started with a 6’x9′ canvas dropcloth from the hardware store. Look in the paint section – there are lots of shapes and sizes to choose from. This one cost me about $10.
To replicate my pattern, start by painting the red skinny stripes and then the blue medium stripes; don’t paint the final turquoise color just yet!
Next, remove ALMOST all of your tape. Peel off all the skinny tape from the red lines and the 2″ tape next to the navy blue stripes. Keep the 2″ tape that borders the red skinny stripes.
Our red bench with flower cushion (made over last year), a red crate acting as a plant stand, and some bright Spring flowers bring the whole front of the house to life!
Thanks, as always, to Amy for the opportunity to be here with you today! See you all next month!
