Balcony Makeover - Part 4

Mats hung, flowers planted, furniture painted. Yay!

But as you can see...ugly concrete. The makeshift area rug wasn't good, but this wasn't any better. So my plan B was to head down to Chinatown.

I knew what store I needed, walked in and within 5 minutes had the bamboo area rug I was looking for.

The lighting at this time of day makes it hard to get a decent shot, so I'll have to take more later. But I'm VERY happy with the final result.

Ok ok, I still don't have my outdoor fabric to make pillows but my outdoor living space is finally liveable.

The really cool part this point I've spent under $150 on my balcony makeover! Its over my initial budget, but so far I think it was worth every penny.
