Screen Porch Rug

This post is really long overdue but I have vowed that I will catch up on about 20 posts that are half-written, half-photographed, or just not started.  Here's one.  It's not exactly a project although finding this rug was a job and a half.  I really wanted a new rug for our porch.  {Handy Hubby groans knowing that this means that a new rug is coming soon. } The rug we had out there was about 6 years old, and had survived many winters on the porch as well as the home renovation.  It was in surprisingly good condition but I was done with the tan.  Fortunately I was able to sell it for a good price (further justification for a new rug…Sorry, Handy Hubby).

I originally saw this rug that I LOVED in April and loved it but not it's $400 price tag and it was out of stock most of the times that I clicked lovingly over to my bookmarked site.  {insert sad face}

I was cheap and wanted to find a better deal - it's the porch, not my family room. Well, $400 is probably too much for even my family room.  But, I digress.

Then, while sitting on the beach in the Corolla, NC, I was cruising a Joss & Main sale and… HOLLAH… there it was!  And in stock and $195!  Score.  I purchased it as quick as my fingers could fly over my phone keyboard.  The rug arrived soon after we got home and I was throwing it down within minutes.

I have to say it's AMAZING to walk on - so soft and you would never guess it's an outdoor rug.  The colors are gorgeous and it really makes our porch extra special.
