Balcony Makeover - Part 3

Happy July 4th!

So I thought if I got some super duper duct tape and taped two bamboo beach mats together, they would make an outdoor area rug.

This is where the two yellow mats came into play.

But it wasn't looking good from the start.

Actually, at this point I was still optimistic, but then....

I realized that not all bamboo mats are created equal.

The result wasn't perfect, but it felt nice on my feet and I thought I would be able to make do until I found something I really liked (and could afford).

But after leaving it outside for the night, the tape andor the mats began to shrink causing it to ripple all the way along. Not good and not the look I was going for.

As always, I had a Plan B....which really should have been Plan A....but we'll just let that one go.

Stay tuned for Part 4.
