Rug, Check!

I found a rug for the patio, and might I add that it was free? Yes you read right, free! My mother in law gave me a carpet remnant she had and just said when it gets really messed up I can throw it out and buy one. For now, it is spotless and works great. I was able to get 2 rugs out of the remnant, and they have palm trees on them so I am so pleased.


I have also decided that I am gonna paint the cement slab floor, and possibly do a diamond pattern on it, but that will have to wait. For now this is where we are on the patio. By the way, the budget is still @ $99 since the rug was free! If you want an exact budget breakdown you can go to this post for the details.

I am getting ready to go to the river for the night. We are gonna leave for family vacation on Sunday morning, but the boys wanted to spend some time at the river with Nana and Jerry first. I will post more later, but hope you all have a great weekend!

How perfect is that rug? And how perfect is that price tag? I keep thinking of your makeover as I see the exorbatant prices of lawn furniture in the weekly flyers. I'm on the look out to do a makeover like yours. First I need some furniture...

I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

Love the "outdoor space" you created. I need to start cleaning up my back deck, but oh yeah... it might still snow or blow gale force winds in the next day or two... I should wait! Love the cute little wicker sofas... so cute and you are so handy with the sewing machine... I do wish you were my neighbor!
