The March weather in Michigan is -9 degrees Fahrenheit right now and my patio is covered in snow, so I’m dreaming of spring, when my patio will again come to life.
For those of us still waiting for winter to end, March is a time to plan your patio space for time spent outdoors in the coming months. For me, I’m eyeing a new outdoor rug (our last one was chewed on by the dog, so it is time to upgrade). I’m considering DIY options-something I can create that will give my patio a unique look and that will save me money. Plus, I may want a new look next year, and if I spend a ton of money, I may hesitate to do that! By going the DIY route, I create a look that not everyone else has-a bonus in my book!
While brainstorming my own outdoor rug plans, I’ve created a round-up of outdoor rug fun to share with you, and hopefully inspire you to think outside of the box this spring! Here are 20 unique outdoor rug ideas that will give your patio the makeover you’ve been dying for. By using old carpet squares, table cloths, paint or even outdoor canvas, you can create a DIY outdoor rug.
Add your own style to your outdoor rugs
If you find an idea you like, don’t hesitate to add your own twist. Choose colors that match your existing décor or that speak to the mood you want to convey in the space. When I find ideas online, like the ones below, I feel more inspired and capable of taking on a DIY project. I say to myself, “If they can do it, so can I!”
So have fun, use your imagination and share your photos or ideas-we’d love to see them and inspire others!
