Fast forward to this Spring! The inside of the house is coming together so well that I finally turned my attention to the patio. I will be hosting a baby shower for my twin sister in July so I really wanted to get the space done before then. So over the last couple of months I have been collecting plants and doing a lot of potting, digging, and planting. The last touch was picking up some string lights from Target (since they were having a sale!) and at last the patio has come to life for me!
I have always thought these cute daybeds made out of old cribs were so adorable. I came across one not long ago at a favorite antique store and just had to have it for the patio! Isn't it so cozy!? A bunch of pillows and a blanket and it makes a perfect spot to nap.
Those adirondack chairs are plastic and are under $20 a piece at target, home depot, or lowes. I am all about saving some cash and not buying the more expensive wood ones! The rug was a great find at ROSS for only $29. The little coffee table we got on sale at Target at the end of the season last year.
I used the side of the crib that I took off to make the daybed as some art hung on the wall. I added a sign I found at Marshalls to it. It's a bit hard to hang anything on stucco so I put some nails in the wood strip and hung them from string.
One of my favorite things I did was create this lamp for the patio. I saw this idea on pinterest and thought it was so creative! All I did was use a bottle I already had along with a lamp shade I wasn't using and added a solar light for the bulb. No plug required!
For this side of the patio I moved the couch we already had to create another little sitting area. For the table I used a crate my dad built and flipped it over. It works perfectly and didn't cost me a thing since I already had everything! The rug was a find last year at Marshalls and was only about $20. The little wood side table was another item my dad built. I added the sink I bought to add in some more character until I can figure out how to redo it.
I got this door from my sister and thought it would be perfect for adding some interest to this blank wall without having to hang anything. I stacked some crates I already had and added some more plants and candles.
I can never get enough plants and I can't wait for the ones I have to grow even bigger! I am restraining myself and not buying anymore for now! I also wanted to show you how this space looks at night. i think I might love it even more at night with those string lights!
Do you see the moon making an appearance?
