It's been 4 years in the making, but I finally have a decent looking outdoor living space!
update on corner of it last year, and that's where we usually hang out. But the rest of it...well, it looked like this. The most unwelcoming sight EVER! haha. And don't get me started on what's going on with the dirt and rock pile on the other side of the patio...that's a discussion for another day. Ugh. Anyway...yuck!
awesome farmhouse table I made 4 years ago for the patio was used to hold random crap, toys, and yard debris. We maybe only used it twice to eat on. I know! Pathetic. I was so excited for this table when I made it! So sad to think so many years went by without us enjoying it. I actually started hating the table itself, because it was such an eyesore. Or so I thought. Really, it was just the surroundings that made it horrible.
privacy screen just like I did on the other side of our patio last year.
ou can see how I made the original ones the same way by clicking here.
As for the rest of the area, it was just adding decor and cleaning up a bit.
farmhouse tray out of 2x4s a few years back, and love how it tied in all the wood accents on the table, chairs and privacy screen.
I painted it with my 'fake weathered wood' technique.

DHP Furniture. You may have seen them throughout my house the past few months, but my real intention was to bring them out here when the weather got nice. They compliment this area perfectly!
Fusion Metal Dining Chairs from DHP. I love the dark wood contrast on the white base. They just look amazing! I haven't had them outdoors for very long, in fact, they aren't even outdoor chairs so I'm not sure how they will hold up. But, my plan is that they will be put away when it rains/snows/etc. Until then, I'm going to enjoy them out here and have many...many dinners while sitting on them :)
One last little piece of decor are these awesome solar lanterns I found from Joann's. Aren't they so cute! They add to the nautical look perfectly. I was going to hang some string lights until I found these. I just wish I could find 2 more and I would be happy!
Privacy Screen: $140
Solar Lanterns: $30
Table Runner: $12
Metal Chairs: Free, compliments of DHP Furniture (You can find these chairs on Amazon for about $250 for four)
Everything else I had on hand.
I got the rug last year from Target on clearance which isn't include in the cost since it was also in the before picture ;) I think it was like $70 though.
