The Art of Reinvention

February 6th, 2010

I love the texture and feel a seagrass rug brings into a room…

BUT do not like  that they are not stain resistant.

Here is an idea if you are not quite ready to throw that stained seagrass rug away.

A Sea Grass rug with a pattern hides a lot of small stains and will

make the rug last a little longer!

I have used water based stains, or  Sunny’s glazes to stencil with,

they dry fast,

do not get hard once dry,

and absorb into the rug quickly, leaving  nice clean lines.

Happy Reinventing!

    Love the seagrass stenciled rug. Was wondering what kind of brush you used for this and how did you hold down the stencil enought to keep the stain or glaze from bleeding? Thanks so much!

    I just used a china bristle brush- the up and down motion on the stencil keeps it from bleeding- and I use a small amount of paint and or stain.
