I Had A Dream About My Patio


Actually, it was more like a nightmare.


But I wasn’t really asleep.


I was in my back yard, staring at this:

(yes, I have spray painted on that table…don’t judge)


And this:

Last year, we bought new patio furniture

I went with a neutral dark brown, which is my nature, but it REALLY needs some color.


We have these chairs leftover from the round table, you can see that I started painting one (oh the horror…), but I changed my mind, and it’s probably a good thing, ‘cuz I’ve done changed it again.

We do have a nice hose, don’t ya think?


So anyway…we’re planning a patio overhaul this spring, maybe even some structural stuff, I’ll have to let you know on that part.


I found this cute lantern at the Goodwill last week.

And this very cool I can’t remember what it is thing.  It came with little glass cups that perfectly hold a votive candle, perfect for candle-lit summer nights.

I bought this fabulously colorful outdoor fabric to jazz things up.  I can’t wait to stitch up some eye catching pillows.

My wish list still pines for some vintage garden furniture that I could paint a beautiful bright color.


As the weather FINALLY warm up, we’ll be working like crazy to make our patio an inviting place to hang out.  What are your plans for your outdoor space this year?


Have a great week!

  1. I have just started sprucing up my patio and front porch. I have added some potted flowers and started weeding the gardens. I plan on making some new pillows for my porch swing and hopefully some pillows for the chairs on my patio set.

  2. Ah well. That’s what spring is for. We hope to start putting in our back yard. Since our remodel we did the front courtyard which we are enjoying every day, but the back yard is just a whole lotta dirt! Have fun sprucing!

  3. I’m brainstorming for my garden and patio area, too. This is the third summer we’ve been in our house and the first year, my hubby ripped out the concrete slab patio and added a brick paver patio and walkways and built a pergola over it. The next year he designed and installed a koi pond with two waterfalls and built trellises along one side of our 6 ft privacy fence and planted clematis, and then added a fire pit and started a grilling station. This year we’re finishing the grilling station and adding raised beds and vegetable trellises along the *other* side of the fence. Bought a new outdoor couch, table and chairs for the patio last year but searching fleas and yard sales for some vintage furniture too…thinking I’ll spray paint it robin’s egg blue…so excited for spring and outdoor living!
