Bringing the indoors out

I just bought this beautiful indoor/outdoor rug from Overstock! The total was $50 including tax & shipping after using a Livingsocial groupon (deal is over) and a 15% off discount on Overstock rugs.

I saw this photo a few years ago on Lauren Liess‘s blog and it hasn’t left my mind since; this photo is of their gorgeous shed/playhouse. :)

I’m hoping it will withstand the elements and most important of all, my little dog Buddy.  Here’s my outdoor space at the moment.  I think a rug would really make the space a little cozier.

Spring is coming!  And with it my urge to decorate outside!  I have quite a few things on my to-do list when it comes to the patio and general curb appeal.

  • Install a hose hanger onto the side wall
  • Finish up some succulent planting/arranging that I didn’t finish last year
  • Buy some more terra cotta pots to conceal big ugly plastic black ones

I really hope this rug works out.  Reviews are favorable overall but most reviewers are using this rug indoors.  Hmm.
