An Easy "General Store" Stenciled Kitchen Rug


I recently purchased this kitchen rug at Kmart for $5.99.

It's latex backed, 17.3" x 30", and machine washable.  But it's just a little PLAIN...


I just received a new stencil in the mail this week!  

It's the newest stencil from *Old Sign Stencils stencil collection - "General Store".  Perfect for a farmhouse/country kitchen.

The stencil is wider than my rug, so I stenciled "General" above "Store" on the rug.

Always use a ruler and measure to center your stencil!  If you stencil looks too high or too low or too far left or right, it will spoil your project.

After I was satisfied that there was indeed room for both words, and had measured even margins all around the rug, I taped the stencil on with blue painter's tape.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain for the stenciling.

Fusion Mineral Paint works very well on fabric.  After it's cured, it is machine washable.  I stenciled tee-shirts with it last summer, and was very pleased with the condition of the stenciling after many machine washings.

I then stenciled  "Store" onto my rug.

I ended up doing a couple of coats to make sure there was adequate paint coverage.
