I recently purchased this indoor/outdoor area rug from Joss & Main to use right inside our French doors in the kitchen. For double French doors, I like having large mat.

When doing a Google search for this area rug, the best price I saw was $89. Joss & Main price: $49! Events change frequently but there are always great prices!

I painted the microwave cart {dresser} and “Farmer’s Market” sign using Deco Art’s Americana acrylic craft paint “Tuscan Red”.
