One of the first improvements was our outdoor rug. Poor thing is well loved, but very faded. At $60.00 a pop, we could not afford to buy new. So after some pressure washing, painting, and a quick protective spray, we have a new and bright outdoor rug.
Here she is in the beginning of the process.
I first had the idea to apply Citron colored acrylic paint over the faded maroon circles. I applied with a sponge brush.
This proved a tedious process,where I found myself asking my husband how much that outdoor rug cost?~?!!!! After several breaks,I had the brainstorm to add some turquoise around the edges...
My sweet children even helped during this process. Granted they did not last long, but I enjoyed their help and conversation while they were there! And Madison came up with the idea to paint the middle of the flowers orange. Which, by the way, looked awesome!
So, instead of paying $60.00 for a new rug, I spend $5.00 on paint, I already had the protective spray, and got to spend MUCHO quality time with the kiddos........PRICELESS! A new, fresh,summer look=LOVE~!
