I know the perfect person for this outdoor minimalist rug. However, the $50 price tag is making me cringe. There must be a better way, and alternative to the paracord. She tells us that some of her readers alerted that they had found the cording for a little less money elsewhere besides Home Depot. I'd love this for my deck, but I would need it much bigger and I'm afraid that I'd have to spend an arm and a leg on making it. I'd like to know what you all think?
