― I wanted an outdoor matt, but slightly larger than usual. I'm also picky about the colors since I love my deck & the colors are taupe, black, white & orange on the deck. To coordinate with the existing colors, I picked out some fabric at the fabric store. I also picked up some gloss varnish, a paintbrush, duct tape & rug padding at the craft store. I then went to the home depot & bought some vinyl remnants, these were super cheap! I figured I could make this outdoor matt & indoor floor covering [...].
