Outdoor Rug Knock-off

11 November 2010

Outdoor Rug Knock-off
party highlight by Faith's Place

Check out these rugs from Ballard's Designs.

An 8' x 11' braided outdoor rug just like the one(s) pictures would cost me $699.....

I hope I don't offend anyone, but who in their right mind would spend $700 on an outdoor rug???????

Instead of spending $700, I went to Lowe's and purchased a canvas drop cloth for about $15 and painted stripes on it!!!!

I just measured and taped. Then painted.


I am currently working on sprucing up my back porch, and this custom "rug" added a nice touch to it!!


I realize this is not close to the quality of a $700 rug from Ballard's.....but it works for me.  I spent less than $20 on this rug, so if it gets dirty it won't stress me out.  Think about the stress you would go through if you were trying to keep a $700 OUTDOOR rug clean....


I'm still working on my back porch, so check back soon to see what else I am doing out here!!!

What a great idea! Who would spend that much on a rug that will be getting dirty fast! I might have to try this one myself. Traci
