Outdoor Rug with checked trim

While I am working at the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale this weekend, I will leave you with this quick outdoor rug.

I took an old beach mat and a roll of checked Duck Tape:

I cut the mat in half and simply taped off the cut end quickly before it unraveled. I then taped off the other 3 sides:

I placed the tape under the mat (about 1/3 of the width) and then folded it over to the front, laying it smoothly:

And now I have a mat for outdoors - and if it gets wet, who cares? Remember, it's a beach mat!

One of the mats is in front of the loveseat on the front porch and the other is in front of the wicker chairs at the other end of the porch:
