DIY Project: Painted Rug - Redux

I decided to paint the second rug I use in the backyard as well, to go with the one I made recently, and coordinate the colors/pattern, but not match it. Instead I did this chevron stripe, alternating two of the colors I used on my first rug, using the same technique as before. I also painted our old outdoor furniture, which after winter, pretty much looked like they were at death's door.

Here is my new rug:

Furniture Before/After:

I love the rug, and I'm glad to be able to milk another season out of our old patio furniture. I'm happy the color of the furniture how matches the lounge furniture under the canopy.

I still need to get a new umbrella, after the Husband decided to be nice & wash the old one, which surprisingly resulted in the umbrella disintegrating into a wad of shredded fabric. Ooops!

Now, my backyard is that much closer to be ready for Summer. I can't wait!
