Before and After: A Bare Outdoor Patio Becomes a Cheerful Spot for Entertaining

Before and After: A Bare Outdoor Patio Becomes a Cheerful Spot for Entertaining

If you're looking for a little outdoor inspiration for a weekend project, this before and after is a good one to check out. This practically bare patio is transformed into a colorful, eclectic place to entertain. It even includes a hand painted outdoor rug inspired by the popular kilim-style of late. Click through to check out this outdoor makeover.    

Laura Gummerman is the brain behind this cheerful transformation, which she shared on A Beautiful Mess. She hand painted a kilim-inspired rug onto concrete and added comfortable furniture and soft textiles. 

*If you don't want to paint directly on concrete, you can grab a large piece of thick canvas or plain outdoor rug and paint a design onto that instead, for a movable rug that still adds a pattern pop.
