A New Outdoor Rug

I am so excited to show you my new outdoor rug.  Isn't she a beauty?  I love the contrast in colors.  The rug we had there before was pretty much the same color as the cool deck so it didn't have any punch of color.  It was so boring.  Here's an old photo for you to compare it to (before the outdoor curtains).

Very dull / no contrast between cool deck and rug

We had to power wash the cool deck before laying out the new rug.  Let me just say....that is back breaking work!  And messy!!!  

This is the first time the cool deck has ever been power washed in almost 4 years.  Thanks to me buying myself a power washer we were able to make things look new again.  Go Debbie!  Go Debbie!

It looks so much better now that it has been cleaned off.

You don't realize how much decking there is until you start cleaning it.  I want to give a shout out to Tiffani and Justin for helping us out.  They both took turns cleaning the deck near the French doors.  Brooke and Brad were MIA, attending his sister's wedding.  Tiffani said we needed to save an area for Brooke so she could appreciate the work we did.  She was kidding of course!  The best part was they were kind enough to bring over dinner.  We had yummy chicken tacos.

 I am so pleased with the look of the new rug.

I am most happy about everything being clean.  Now I can enjoy myself!  Well, maybe not yet.  We still have some flowers to plant, hedges to trim, etc.  :)  It's never ending!

Take care,
