Let's get outside!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Let's take a look at my favorite room in the house...outside :-)

I will not envy, I will not envy... 

I wish this was a how to post on how to build a fabulous fire pit for 50 people, but I am not that skilled yet. 
Instead, I am going to show you my projects on how to make a simple patio a space you love. 

You don't need to have the perfect pottery barn furniture to make your patio inviting.  I have a great old wooden set that was given to us from my wonderful mother-in-law.  With a little spray paint and a couple pillows it makes a perfect addition to any patio. 


My favorite accessory to any patio is flowers!!  I have the best husband who bought me some amazing hanging plants for Mother's day. 

I found this DIY project from Inspiration for Moms that I will be attempting in the very near future! 
I really miss our old garden that Brian made me 4 years ago...


but next year I think this would be such a fun idea for a garden at our new house, I better start drinking giving away some more wine ;)


My other 2 favorite additions to a perfect outdoor patio...umbrellas & lights (I keep my patio lights up year round, because I love love love them, even when they are simple like mine)!  I am kind of sad that we don't currently have an umbrella in our patio now that we have a cover, even though it stays much cooler.  It makes my table seem so bland :-( 

Stay tuned, I have some more amazing patio ideas coming tomorrow...
