Finally! The pictures I've been waiting to share with you all for weeks (and you would have gotten them a good two weeks ago if the baby hadn't killed my laptop!) After I lost my original pictures we had an insane amount of pollen roll in and I had to wait for it to let up a bit so I could rephotograph the patio-but here it is!
I'm in love with the difference in the back patio!
I already shared our DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Dining Table and the Vintage Chair Makeover, but I haven't told you about the rest of the chairs yet. That blue chair was another ReStore find, for just $5 and it got a few cost of Valspar Outdoor Gloss Peacock Blue. The metal chairs I bought at Target but they were black so I painted them with Valspar Outdoor in Satin Morning Mist. This was my first time trying the Valspar Outdoor line and it went on fantastic. I chose it specifically for the metal chairs because it is supposed to prevent rust. It sprayed on so nicely-I highly recommend it (this is not a sponsored post, it was just great!)
The pillows I made myself. The yellow is Premier Prints Towers in Citrus Yellow, the green is Richloom Solarium in Kirkwood Palm, and then you'll recognize the ikat as part of the Target Shower Curtain I used to reupholster the vintage chair.
We also replaced our old, decaying grill with a new one we got on sale at Big Lot's for $180, and added string lighting I found on sale at Target.
The place settings were frugal as well-the plates were four for $1.50 at Walmart and the napkins are from World Market. I buy all of my cloth napkins at World Market (we only use cloth napkins unless we have a big cookout), they have great prices and tons of colors. Oh, and the honeycomb vase was another Target find!
There are a few things I'd love to add to complete the space-an area rug would be amazing. I'm also thinking of adding some curtains on the side of the patio opposite the pool to allow us more privacy while swimming later this year.
Overall though I'm just in love with my bright cheery space! I can't wait to show you where I moved the old patio furniture and the little spruce up it received too!
I'd love to hear what you think!
