    Awesome color! I looked into getting one of the rugs for my front porch before I copied your bee but it was too big. But now, I'm thinking maybe the back patio!! How do you think it would hold up in weather? Have a great day!~~Angela

    Love this idea. But I, too, am wondering how the paint holds up with water/rain, as well as foot traffic. What is your experience from the first one?
    Looking forward to making this!

      My first one is still looking like new. Since it's on my porch, it doesn't get full exposure to the elements, but it gets some. I even left it out through the winter & it's holding up well. Hope that helps you!

    You've totally made my day! I've been looking for a rug to put under the dining room table. I haven't been able to find anything that i like in my price range. I finally decided that I'll probably have to "make" one. Do you know if this rug can be cut to size?

      That's great! Glad I could help. I'm not positive about the cutting to size, but I think it's a possibility! Maybe HD themselves could answer for you.

    Wow great idea! And thank you for the link to the rug!!!
    Can you tell me if the painted part is comfortable to walk on with bare feet? Or is it pretty hard and pokey?

    I absolutely love this! The rug with the bee is it tan or gray? Thank you

    This looks great!! Are the painted areas rough and a hard texture?
