Flat-woven rug

Instructions

  1. Tape off one third of the length of the rug. Visually dividing the short side of the rug into quarters, tape off right triangles on the outer quarters of that section.
    • TIP: You will have to tape off and paint each triangle as you go. We recommend working your way from the outside in.
  2. Using the Brush, apply Vintage Decor paint in an up and down pouncing motion, working the paint into the fibers of the rug.
  3. Continue taping off right triangles and painting the sections in various colors. Leave some triangles natural.
