I’ve been wanting a rugby striped rug for my screen porch for a while. I think rugby stripes scream “summertime”! My inspiration was THIS, but a $399 outdoor rug is not in my budget! So, I decided to make a DIY drop cloth rug using a painter’s canvas and Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint in Navy.

Pinned, because now I added "make a rug" to my list of things to do! Beautiful.
You have just given me an idea and I thank you!!! I love your striped rug, it looks amazing!
Love it! I need a porch rug and you have inspired me.
Perfect!! Your porch looks lovely 🙂
Doreen, I love it…its so funny because when I first opened the post my eyes were still stuck shut with sleep and I thought it said…diy navy stupid rug…and I laughed cause I thought.."oh she titles stuff like me" LOL… Glad to see it was striped and not stupid..:) It looks awesome and I now want a sun porch so I can make one of these rugs.
The paint looks great on there.

You had me at "navy and white." It's my favorite color combination, and when you make it into stripes, it really makes my heart beat faster!
Your project looks so easy – I think I could do that, and the color of Navy is a really pretty hue. Great inspiration.
That is such a smart idea! The navy stripe just screams nautical/Summer to me and it's perfect on your porch. What a super diy idea!!!!
The rug adds so much to the space! Love it!
This is such a beautiful project and I love how the rug turned out and it does scream summer!!! I am going to try this paint once in the new house, next week, on some projects I have planned.

Very cool Doreen! I'm so glad you shared!
I have a black rug can I paint it and what kind of paint
Hi, Joann. I’m sorry I can’t help you because I’ve never actually painted a rug. My post was about creating a DIY striped rug using a painter’s drop cloth and paint. Maybe you can find something on Pinterest.
My porch is not covered. Do you think it would hold up still in the weather?
Yes, it should be fine. My porch gets wet and it held up to it.
