A month ago I asked for your help in choosing an outdoor rug for my back porch. I showed you eight rugs that I found online from Lowe's and World Market. The popular choice was #2 and #6 but a couple of you liked #4 and #8. I compared the lot and quickly started eliminating.
I was looking for an relatively large rug that was outdoor rated with UV protection. Besides the ultimate factor of price I wanted something that I could hose down when, not if, my kids get mud on it. The one rug that met all my requirements was #6.
My yard gets muddy when it rains and desert like in the summer, so you know what that means. DIRT. My kids are the best when it comes to tracking in dirt. The dirt will blend perfectly in with the rug and I can keep my sanity. If I had chosen something like #4 I would be in a panic every time they went outside.
I added my patio furniture and my vision is starting to come together. If some of you are wondering why I am not utilizing the entire space to the back side of the rug, near the house, I have to leave room for Eleanor. Eleanor is my husbands motorcycle and that is her parking space. :)
So, tell me, what do you think so far? Are you starting to spruce up your patio and yard? Or is it just too cold? Until next week, see ya soon!
