Do you remember the thrifted wooden patio set I shared back in April? Today I’m sharing a colorful outdoor living space makeover. The before and after is crazy, it doesn’t look like the same set!
When we first took a tour of our house, there were many details and features that convinced us to put in an offer. But when we stepped outside, we were surprised. The house had a beautiful yard on a half acre as well as a two level deck with an arbor overhead. There was a bit of cleaning up to do but as we walked around, I pictured us here.
Summer mornings with coffee, entertaining with friends, clearing the calendar and relaxing. Since we had quite a bit of projects to tackle, a pretty outdoor living space was something I figured would stay near the bottom of the to-do list.
Fast forward to April when I found a patio set at a garage sale for $50. I wasn’t so sure of the purchase, even after I brought it home! There were no cushions or pillows and I knew those could be expensive.
I looked at a few places, including World Market’s new outdoor living collection. I checked their cushion sizes and YES! the slipcovered cushions from the Solano sectional fit the deep seats perfectly. At $30 a seat, they wouldn’t break the bank either. And they were slipcovered and washable, which would hopefully make me slightly less crazy for going with white.
But the cushions alone wouldn’t make the space. When I saw these pillows from the Fiji collection, I looked like the heart eyes emoji. They wanted to come live at our house.
I think the pillows are happy here. :)
We added in some globe lights and hanging planters. The whole space looks happy and bright now! The prints and colors add the perfect pop of color.
In just the short time that we’ve had the space, it’s been a great spot for watching the kids play, feeding a baby, or chatting with friends and neighbors.
A spot perfect for enjoying a sunset.
Or for flipping on the globe lights and sneaking out with my husband after a loooong day. Ahhhhhhh, bedtime. :)
Not too shabby for an old deck and thrifted patio set!
What do you think of the space?
Let’s see that before and after again…
It can be tempting to go neutral with outdoor decor, but have some fun with it! Here’s a Summer Decorating Tip from Angela Elias, Editor of PopSugar Home:
An outdoor space is the perfect spot to take decorating risks. Layering vibrant accessories like rugs, accent tables and umbrellas can create the same eye-catching impact as growing a colorful garden. Play it safe with key pieces, like furniture, but have fun with the rest!
