Lidl is selling a waterproof outdoor rug for just £6.99 and people are using it to transform their garden in seconds

WE'VE certainly been treated to BBQ weather of late – and people have been making the most of the sunshine to give their garden seating areas a stylish upgrade.

A waterproof outdoor rug from Lidl, costing less than a tenner, has been widely praised on social media as an affordable way to jazz up any backyard.

In a post on Facebook group 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK', a woman called Julie revealed how she had bought the bright blue version of the geometric print 'Florabest Outdoor Rug' from the bargain store in two sizes.

She revealed that the smaller option was £6.99, while the medium set her back £9.99.

Her post received more than 290 'likes', with many agreeing that it had made a huge difference to the space.

One person wrote: "I need to get one."

Another commented: "Love ours!"

A third shared: "I want these, love them."

And a fourth added: "They look lovely."

The small and medium sizes come in blue, pink and grey – with many other DIY fans prompted to share snaps of how they had slotted the varying designs into their own outdoor spaces.

The website description reveals that it is comprised of "hard-wearing and weather-resistant fabric made from waterproof fibres – ideal for your garden, patio, balcony or when camping".

However, they add that it is "also great for indoor areas such as your bathroom, hallway or kitchen".

To clean, all you need to do is shake it and spray it with a garden hose.

This also means that they will happily survive a sudden British summertime downpour.
