We took out all of our patio furniture a while back but we have been so busy with showers and life that we haven't enjoyed relaxing outside enough!
Downstairs patio we were in need of pillows and I found the greatest inspiration picture! It reminds me of our space, and inspired me on what we needed to do! I created an inspiration board (inspiration photo on the left, items I found online on the right) and went to work!
First up were the pillows. I knew I loved World Market for the pillows since our upstairs patio has pillows and outdoor items from there. Used their 15% off outdoor items coupon and we were set!
The little girls love them! :)
Then for our anniversary, Nate let me get the marquee light and I was so excited! It would be AMAZING out here but I am too worried it will get stolen. We don't have a fence yet (praying someday!!) and our backyard is super public from all angles of the street so no giant R light out here for now. I do adore it in the kitchen, though!
World Market also had a drum stool that I love, and didn't think we were going to purchase just to save money, but I decided I would rather have this than go out for an expensive birthday dinner (back in April) so we snapped it up! This I can enjoy longer than an evening of deliciousness! :) The problem is we are liking it in Bradley's nursery now next to the glider! Decisions...
We picked up some string lights at Target during the $10 sale for some ambiance but haven't put them up yet with all the monsoons of rain we have been having! I hope we can put them up sometime soon!
We didn't purchase anything new for upstairs since we found quite a few things last year. We also haven't sat out there much because of all the rain. Rats! Maybe when Bradley is a newborn he will like sitting outside??
I know Nate does! :)
We LOVE being outside when the weather allows relaxing on our porches! I hope this nice weather stays so we can enjoy it more! Have you been able to get outside much this summer?
