My patio is complete (for now).
We moved into this house in June and I wanted to use the patio right away.
So besides buying a new table I tried to use things we already had.
I used some purple toile fabric that I've had stashed for years to brighten up the table.
Next to my hypertufa planter I placed a real birds next we found near the patio when we moved in.
I got excited when remembered I had this large aqua stone which helps tie in with all the other aqua pieces I've added to the patio. (which I talked about in my last post)
This little twig table used to be in my son's woodland themed nursery, but now that he's a very active toddler I decided a glass top table might not be a good choice for his room anymore.
The lanterns were on clearance at Target.
These flowers looked so pretty two days ago, but we've been getting alot of storms and a bunch of the petals fell off and blew away. The faux nest has little touches of grey/aqua on the leaves.
I seem to have a plethora of side tables in my house so I grabbed this makeover table of mine and placed it outside. You need to have plenty of places to put your lemonade glass. :)
I got the coffee table from World Market on clearance. Those of you who have seen my patio at my old house may wonder what happened to my old DIY patio table. It was slightly too tall which made lounging with my feet up uncomfortable. Comfort is a must at my house, so I sold it on craigslist .The lady who bought it is really the queen of re-using because she was going to turn my coffee table into a pot rack and hang it from the ceiling. So cool!
Now I'll move onto the other side of the patio.
I've shown you my pots I've turned into side tables last summer, if you'd like to see how to make them click here. When I get a chance I hope to do a follow up post showing how these have held up.
I'm going to stop talking now and just show you photos.
I'm still looking for the perfect indoor/outdoor rug for the space.
I just used this grain sack style rug for the photos.
(thanks Dina :)
Don't be surprised if the patio looks different next summer. :)
There are things I still want to change, but for now I have a nice place to sit and watch my kids play.
