Coir Rug Painting Tips: Draw the Pattern
If you aren’t using a stencil, use a pen or dark pencil to sketch out the pattern before you begin painting.
Coir Rug Painting Tips: Supplies
Paint Pour Squeeze Bottles
Coir rugs are a tricky texture to paint. They absorb paint really well and have a rough surface, so getting lines straight can be tricky. I’ve discovered that using a very small brush to get the lines straight works best. But also a trick is using a mixing bottle that has a hole at the top. I fill it up with 80% paint and then add about 20% water. Adding water makes the paint come out easier, instead of globs.
Coir Rug Painting Tips: Using a Stencil
Another idea you can do to paint coir rugs is cutting a stencil out of vinyl. You can use a craft cutting machine to cut out the letters and designs. Then you lay the vinyl over the rug and then use a sponge to dap paint on top of the stencil.
Coir Rug Painting Tips: Imperfections are Ok!
Also just know that your rug is going to have some imperfections and that is ok! It just means it was made with love. So don’t sweat it!

Yay for Christmas time!
Okay, I absolutely love this! Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to shop, so of course I love this. I’ve seen people paint door mats before, but I think this might be the first one I’ve seen that looks store bought. It’s looks fantastic!
