Being outdoors and having an inviting, outdoor space is SO important to me when the weather is nice. I’ve teamed up with Gordmans to share how to have a live beautifully outdoors on a budget!

Today’s post is the first sneak into our new home and I can’t wait to share SO much more with you over the coming months. Our deck will eventually be painted but for right now I really wanted a rug to pull together our furniture we already had with the coloring of the deck, yet, still be my style. I know, I know I’m asking a lot!Gordmans is known for amazing home decor at even better prices. When it comes to outdoor decor they don’t disappoint!

Outdoor rugs can be expensive, however, Gordmans had so many great options that were amazing quality for around $50! This one is the Safavieh brand and was actually under $50. Right now since we’re nearing the end of the summer they also had quite a few outdoor living items on sale. Which for Gordmans means their already great prices are even better. I’m super happy with this rug and was thrilled to find out once I brought it home that the redish-orange color in it ties in with the deck perfectly!

They had quite a few chair cushions, smaller outdoor rugs, and various outdoor decor items as well. It was hard to narrow it down! My favorite thing I got is probably the “mint to be” cement planter. How perfect to put my mint in for a yummy mojito or moscow mule??

Another way I simply updated my outdoor living space on a budget was to paint our outdoor table. I’ve had this table from World Market for a couple years now and being outside year round it gets quite the beating. We sealed the wood top several times but with it being a cedar color and the deck being red I thought it was time for a change. So gray it is! Bought a small can of outdoor gray stain/paint for $5 and instantly have a “new” table and bench for our outdoor living pleasure.

Being “on a budget” doesn’t ever mean you have to sacrifice style. Gordmans helps me achieve the look I want on the budget I want. Whether it be home decor, outdoor furniture, accent furniture or clothing they truly do have it all and I love the hunt for a cool piece at a great price!
