In the last post, I mentioned that we have four very, very small weeks to redo our ugly patio and build a new deck.
What’s that? You want a little sneaky-peeky? TWIST MY ARM.
YEP. That’s deck progress, buds. My dad come over one day with a pile of lumber while Andy was at work, and like a little lumber-elf, he had the deck halfway finished all by himself in like five seconds. (THANKS DAD!)
As you can see, he had lots of help with the sweeping. And the sweeping was necessary. Can’t have stray leaves hiding under a deck, guys.
Now. If we’re going to make this deck happen in place of that not-so-cute patio…
…then we’re going to need an outdoor rug. Because it would be pretty. So that fits my definition of “need.” Otherwise I don’t really understand outdoor rugs. (But don’t worry too much about that, Andy. They have a real function. Ahem.)
We’re looking for an 8×10 rug for under $250 – preferably way under – that’ll hide big ol’ doggy footprints which have slopped through the red Georgia clay.
2. Rugs USA
This one reminds me of the pricey Dash & Albert rugs, but with a much better price tag.
4. World Market
They have some pretty choices in the smaller sizes. Here’s one of the larger ones. Simple, but it could be pretty.
5. One Kings Lane
(These rugs are part of an outdoor rug sale at OKL that ends today.)
7. Home Depot
BOOM. You did NOT just expect to get slammed in the face with a never-ending list of affordable outdoor rugs, did you? That’s what happens around here, guys. You gotta be ready. At all times.
I have a favorite in this list which I’ll show you soon… my little plan is starting to come together juuuust perfectly… she says, rubbing her hands together and squinting her eyes like an evil genius, except without the genius part.
What’s your favorite? Do you do outdoor rugs at your place?
