Our patio can’t quite seem to compete in appearances with the rest of the house. It’s full of bikes, popsicle sticks, garden tools and a crumbling ceiling. I’m very particular about indoor rules but those don’t apply to the back patio and a result, the patio looks like a dumping ground.
That’s all about to change. I’ve been really pumped about fixing up the patio since the weather has warmed. The main thing we use the patio for is eating. I love eating outside for the ambiance but mainly because I can squirt the floor off with a hose instead of mopping it. Unfortunately, I’m not loving a whole lot of the outdoor furniture I’m finding. It all looks like…well…patio furniture. I don’t know what I would rather it look like? Just not what it looks like. I guess I want my patio to look like a room that is just an extension of my home…but outside. Oye, my head hurts. At any rate, here are a few things I’m kind of actually liking. Keep in mind the chairs and table aren’t actually meant for outdoors but…we’ll see about that.
Operation Backyard Patio Makeover is officially underway!
