Cactus Stenciled Outdoor Rug

Gussying up the deck was a big focus of our first week of summer. I was really excited about getting a big rug outside and had such a hard time finding one I loved. Instead of buying one I didn’t love – I bought a huge piece of AstroTurf from Costco and stencil painted cactus on it.

Whatever outdoors you are enjoying this weekend, I hope it is great. We are off to the lake today! Living near Lake Tahoe has its advantages. Happy weekend!
