So now that I showed you our new backyard, it's time to show you some of the details.
As you know from my Pinterest Inspired Bathroom, I absolutely love trying out new projects to see if they are all they are cracked up to be, and today's post is no different.
I talked about some outdoor flooring ideas that I loved in one of my very first blog posts here, and I have been dying to try the outdoor rug project.
I actually bought a clearance table cloth from Target that I loved last year in preparation for this project...I certainly didn't realize at the time that it would take a year before we started on the back yard.
I used her same method of simply rolling on some water based polyurethane...
I coated the underside of the tablecloth first and let it dry and then did 2 coats of poly on the top side. I had exactly the right amount of poly in this can.
It got a little bit more stiff and I can wash it right off when the dogs and kids get it dirty!
It is a perfect solution for an outdoor rug!
This rug cost a total of $32 ($22 for the poly & $10 for the clearance tablecloth). Outdoor rugs are quite expensive, especially if you want one with a pattern and there are so many colors and options to choose from in tablecloths, it is a genius solution!
