The weather in our backyard has been very bi-polar lately. We wake up with an inch or two of snow on the ground, but by the afternoon it’s sunny, melted, and in the 40s! The sky has been playing tricks on us. But if you catch a glimpse of spring-like weather this weekend, or if your garage is warmer than usual for this time of year, try this fun DIY project of creating an outdoor rug.
A great way to bring color and comfort to your backyard patio is to put down a bold, colorful rug. Depending on where you shop, rugs can get pretty pricey, so this is where we can get creative! This DIY blogger from Design Share, found a great patterned table cloth at Target – but ended up using it as a rug instead! All she did was cover the table cloth with multiple layers of satin finish water-based polyurethane – which would protect it from dirt, spills, and stains. While she used this rug indoors, you could easily use it outdoors if you coated both sides! To read the whole Do-It-Yourself project, visit her blog.
