Patio Perfection

Hey Decor Friends,

With the unofficial start to summer I thought it would be fun to inspire you with ideas on how you can add some personality to your outdoor spaces. Many of these projects are DIY, repurposing items you may already have.


Designer Tip

When reimaginiang your outdoor spaces think about them in terms of rooms, in your home. Do you want a space to eat outdoors? Do you want a space to sit and have a conversation? Do you need a space where the kids can play and you have a comfy seat to supervise? Would you like the comfort and capability to read outdoors, both day and night?


Figuring out how you want to utilize your outdoor spaces will help you narrow down the functionality and therefore the furniture pieces that are required to enable you to enjoy your outdoors spaces, your way.

I love how this swing has been repurposed using an old door. Can you picture yourself lounging on this swing, enjoying the special moments only summer can bring.

Are you an avid Gardner? This old vanity was repurposed into an amazon gardening bench. Replacing the glass with peg board, giving her a fresh coat of paint, and this unique piece of furniture is now being used in the garden. Fabulous right! This vanity could also become a beverage station while you dine al fresco. Substituting the gardening tools for cups, and other functional pieces, your outdoor bar will have such personality.

This idea, is too cute. A couple pieces of lumber, painted a gorgeous coral color, and a single bedsheet and voila, a cozy shaded tent for your furry family members. Painted up to add some color to this outdoor space, made this “puppy tent” adorable and a fabulous DIY project.

There you have it friends, a couple ideas to add some wow to your patio this summer. Will you give any of these projects a go?

Bye For Now
