our patio 2014

Even though our patio changes a bit from year to year it’s still decorated with new, old, yardsale finds and repurposed things. It’s a mix-up of of this and that. In warm weather the patio becomes an outdoor room. We have breakfast here in the morning and watch the evening news while eating supper. It’s a place where sometimes we just relax and nap.  Come and visit a while!
With the addition of coral and orange accents this year, the patio has a different look. Previous years, I used lime green and turquoise and since some of those pillows needed replaced I decided to go with a new look. The patio furniture is from the Woodward company, Cortland collection and the cushion color is called spa. In person it’s a blue/gray color and seems to pair well with lots of different colors.

The outdoor rugs were purchased several years ago from overstock.com. and are holding up really well. The curlicue bench is something I had and recovered it for the patio. It makes a good footrest.

The coral printed fabrics for the pillows came from Joann’s. The garden stool is from TJMaxx. The black table between the chairs was free at a yardsale!
Boston fern
The Boston fern is from Lowe’s. There’s a Lowe’s store less than a mile from our house and that’s so handy! I love this fabric with the shell design. The colors are perfect out here.

My swing is my most absolute favorite place on the patio.
tv on patio
We have a mini fridge and an old tv out here and when it goes bad we have another one just like it! Those old tvs are still good for something.
swing on patio
The long cushion on the swing is an old cushion from a chaise lounge that I made a cover for. It’s a pretty long swing, I can lay on it and nap.potted plants on patio, geranium
The orange garden stool is from TJMaxx. This one was deeply discounted, I think I paid about 30 bucks for it.

Back to Lowe’s again…..we got a new table and chairs this year.adirondack chairs, polywood
We’ve had these polywood Adirondack rockers for a long time and they got new cushions too.patio
The old wooden desk holding the fridge still needs to be painted.  I use indoor furniture out here and it holds up pretty good. The dresser holding the tv has been painted several times but still  looks good. I keep thinking something to hold both the tv and fridge would be perfect….maybe a shelving unit made out of 2 x 4s. Someday I might feel ambitious enough to tackle that project!  Ya think???
