When we moved into our house, we had the tiniest slab for a patio. My husband wanted to make it bigger...like huge...and I was totally against it. I wanted enough grass for our kids to play on and didn't think a huge patio was a good idea. Anyway, he got is way and now I wish we could have made it bigger ;) Figures.
It's been three years since we expanded our patio and I finally got around to decorating a portion of it. This is the most pattern I have ever used, what do you think?
recovered the cushions a few years back with some fabric found at Hobby Lobby. I can't tell you how impressed I am that this fabric has held together so well over the years, especially for not being outdoor fabric. All I do is just get a hose and spray it down and it's good to go! I do need to refinish the wood on the furniture though, but I really like the worn look. I guess once I start getting splinters from it, I'll do it :) The rug was a Target find. I ended up getting it for around $70. I think it may even be on clearance now if you're lucky. The pillows are also from Target. And the lanterns are from Home Depot, Target and Ace Hardware. I'm telling you, I'm a complete lantern hoarder if you haven't been able to notice :)
little side table has found a new place once again and is out of the basement. My husband wonders why I keep all my old stuff and not just sell it off. This is the reason :) I never know when I will find a chance to use it again. He'll just have to get over the furniture-stuffed basement lol
These lanterns still need some lights in them, but truthfully, I don't care that much :) They were a find from Home Depot a few weeks ago for about $7 each. I love the jute ropes!
