As mentioned in a previous post, I along with 2 blogger friends are doing a “Summer Entertaining Blog Hop” this week! First up is a post from Lauren, the crafty blogger behind Mom Home Guide.

Lauren’s Post

I am so excited that summer is here — I have been out in my garden planting wonderful flowers and veggies, and I have been working on beautifying my home’s backyard patio! I am really looking forward to making the most out of my patio space this summer and hope to enjoy a lot of time outdoors. Lately I have been all about adding color to my home’s interior, so I decided to extend the fun to my backyard patio. I’ve found that adding color to my personal space really makes me a much happier person!

I have been loving yellow lately in home decor — I recently decorated my home’s living room with fun accents and pops of yellow.

So when I thought about decorating my patio space, I just had to include some more happy yellow! I found the perfect outdoor rug for my space: a yellow Tuscan trellis indoor/outdoor flatwoven rug. I really like the pattern and the bright sunny color!

I think the yellow in the rug coordinates beautifully with my blue Adirondack chairs — I only spray painted the chairs a few weeks ago! The rug also goes well with the hand-me-down coffee table that I painted with yellow milk paint for the patio!

My new outdoor rug is made from sturdy synthetic fiber that is made to repel water, so it should be able to stand up to the elements. I recently found out that my rug is made from recycled Coke cans, so I think that’s really cool — way to upcycle!

I’ve already hosted a few get togethers at my home this summer, and my new outdoor space has been a big hit! I am looking forward to using the space for more fun times with family and friends this summer!
