The 10 Best Outdoor Rugs on Amazon Under $100

One thing I think is a must to create a truly cozy outdoor living room, is a rug. Outdoor rugs bring the inside out better than anything else. They make the patio start to feel more like your cozy living room, and a space you want to relax. Plus they’re cheaper than you think! Here’s my round-up of the 10 best outdoor rugs on Amazon for under $100.

I think this is probably my favorite, the Fab Habitat Reversible Rug Miramar – Gray. It’s $94 for the 5′ x 8′. It’s made of 100% recycled plastic, it’s mold and mildew resistant, and UV resistant against fading.

Another rug from Fab Habitat the Cairo – Natural & Black is another great choice. With the same specification as the Miramar it’s available in 4′ x 6′ for only $54.

For a more traditional or French Country look, the Nicole Miller Ayana rug from Home Dynamix is a great choice. Available in grey / blue or grey / black the 5’2″ x 7’2″ is $68.

For a more classic or coastal look, the Safavieh Courtyard Collection rug is available in multiple different colors and sizes. I like this color combo in a classic navy / beige to add a touch of coastal sophistication to your yard. The 5′ 3″ x 7′ 7″ is a decent size for just $100.

For a more modern rug this New York rug by Beverly Rug in blue / white is a bargain at just $80 for a large 7’10” x 10′. I love the red stripes at the edge to make it stand out from the crowd and add more interest.

For a natural look that would look great with a tropical or Boho style patio, this weather resistant jute look rug is a great choice from nuLOOM. You can get the Lefebvre Braided rug in a 3′ x 5′ oval in natural tan for just $44. It’s also available in multiple size / shape combinations and color ways.

This brightly colored Boho style rug would look great paired with brightly colored pillows and furniture for a true Boho chic look. The Safavieh Courtyard Collection rug is pictured here in light grey / fuchsia, but is also available in 6 other color ways. At $92 for the 5’3″ x 7’7″ this rug is a great choice to brighten up your yard.

This bright aqua rug by Fab Habitat is another great option that will make your backyard pop. The Brooklyn rug in teal is $94 for the 5′ x 8′. It’s also available in blue and a five different sizes.

To add warmth and coziness this rug by Unique Loom in burgundy would be a great choice for a modern Southwestern style patio. Th is design is only available in 4′ x 6′ and one color way, but at only $33 it’s a bargain.

For a classic yet modern style, you can’t beat this black and white stripe rug by DII. The 4′ x 6′ is a reasonable $40, it’s also available in navy or grey. This is the rug that I purchased for our patio and can’t wait to see it! Stay tuned for the grand reveal.

5 Styling Secrets For A Boho Outdoor Space

I love the coziness Boho style brings to an outdoor space. With its almost tropical feel, it can bring the vacation vibe to your patio or screen porch without you ever having to leave home. Let’s face it, who isn’t dreaming of a tropical beach vacation right now?

Boho style isn’t as easy as it looks though, while it may look almost thrown together, it’s actually quite a difficult style to get right. I recently decorated our screen porch in this style – well my muted version of it – and here are my 5 styling secrets to creating a beautiful Boho outdoor space.

Secret No.1: Boho Vintage Furniture

Boho style shouldn’t look new and squeaky clean, it’s meant to look well-worn and lived in, and most importantly comfortable. Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Craigslist or your local thrift store are fantastic places to find second-hand treasures. Look for things made of wicker, cane, leather and wood that are well-loved, not only will they look instantly vintage, but they’ll also save you some precious pennies. I found this vintage wicker bar cart from Facebook Marketplace for just $38! If you can’t resist buying new, I also bought these vintage looking wicker garden stools from Kohl’s recently for just $80 in the sale.

Secret No. 2: Boho Colors

True Bohemian style embraces color, lots of it. Clashing patterns, clashing colors, an array of tassels and embroidery, like this vibrant Boho patio space by Jungalow. If you’ve seen any of my designs, you’ll know I don’t usually use a lot of color, mainly because I change my mind so often. I prefer to use muted color palettes or monochrome designs, however you can still achieve the Boho look with a paired down palette. In this design I chose natural wood, off-white and accented it with green. For some of the green accents I bought this ceramic garden stool also at Kohl’s in the sale for just $70.

Secret No.3: Boho Fabrics

You’ll see a lot of fabric used in Boho style outdoor spaces. I love the tulle curtains in this design by Hammock Town, it creates an enclosed cozy space which would otherwise be wide open to the rest of the yard. I did a similar thing with our screen porch using Lill curtains from IKEA costing just $4.99 per pair.

Try also using plenty of rugs, throws and cushions too. Layer them on top of eachother to get a cozy lived in feel.

Secret No.4: Boho Plants

Boho style tends to incorporate lots of greenery from plants, large and small. Again, use lots of them! If you’re lucky enough to live in a climate where tropical plants will grow year-round, then opt for plants like Split Philodendron, Birds of Paradise, Banana Leaf or Palms, like this beautiful patio from Magnolia Lane. If you live in a place with harsh winters like Minnesota, or you’re just not that green fingered, then opt for artificial plants. There are some great options out there, and again check out the second-hand options first. I bought this Ficus tree for just $15 off Facebook Marketplace.

Secret No.5: Boho Lighting

To make an outdoor space feel cozy and inviting after dark, think about lighting. Candles, lanterns, festoon lights and fairy lights add a cozy warm vibe to an outdoor space. I recently bought some festoon lights from Amazon for our outdoor patio area. We still have to finish laying the new deck boards before I can put them up, but stay tuned for a blog post on that shortly, I can’t wait!

This Boho patio looks great at night with the wicker lanterns and paper lanterns hanging from the tree. Get creative with the lighting, and make your Boho outdoor space feel magical and romantic.

How To Makeover a Cane Chair

In this blog post, I wanted to inspire you with how easily and affordably you can makeover a cane chair, or any chair for that matter. All it takes is some paint, some fabric and some time.

What You’ll Need:

For this ‘how to guide’ I used spray paint and regular acrylic paint, however you can also use chalk paint to makeover furniture. The advantages of this, is that you don’t have to sand or prime the furniture beforehand. To read how to paint furniture with chalk paint read my blog here.

STEP 1: The first thing you should do is to give the chair a very light sand with 180 grit sandpaper and fill any holes or damaged parts with some wood filler. Once the wood filler is dry, then lightly sand the filled areas.

STEP 2: Once the surfaces of the chair are smooth and free of damage, wipe the chair to remove all traces of dust. Now you’re ready to apply the primer coat of paint. I used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover 2X in Flat White which is a paint and primer. I applied two coats to the finished cane areas, and one coat to the wood. I recommend this product as it creates a nice even finish in just two coats. You can buy it here from Amazon as a 6 pack. I used about two cans of spray paint to complete this chair.

STEP 3: Once the primed coat on the wood and finish coat on the cane are dry, you’re ready to mask the cane, and apply the finish coat of paint to the wood. I used Sherwin Williams Emerald Interior Acrylic Latex paint and color matched it to a grey I loved from our kitchen cabinets. However, you could also use the Rust-Oleum spray paint to apply the finish coat.

STEP 4: You should now have a completely painted chair, ready for new upholstery. I cheated here, as I don’t own a sewing machine any more. I took my fabric to a local sewing shop with the old cushion inner and they made a new cover for me for $50. But if you do have a sewing machine, it’s pretty easy to make a new cover. I chose a classic farmhouse ticking stripe fabric in grey and white from Best Fabric Store. However make sure to choose an upholstery grade fabric to make sure it’s suitable.

And that’s it! You now have a beautiful new cane chair!

As I mentioned, you can apply these steps to any chair you decide to makeover. It doesn’t have to be a cane chair. However, watch out for upholstered chairs with fixed cushions, as unless you’re skilled at re-upholstering, it won’t be a simple case of swapping out the chair cushion cover. So my tip is to look for loose cushion options to keep the costs down.
