Here is a picture of my patio that I posted a year ago.
I spend a lot of time outside and on the patio, so I really wanted to make this area nice.
The best thing to do to make it feel like another living area of the house is to tile it. So the tile is finally in and with a few shopping trips for patio furniture, plants and a picnic table makeover, I finally have my patio finished.
Hand me down picnic table mom gave me.
I stripped and sanded down the reddish paint that was on it,
stained the top and painted the bottom teal.
The tile really transforms the space.
I love it!
Patio furniture from Pier 1.
I wait until they have their summer clearance sales and get a bargain.
Striped pillows are from Ebay,
but I saw some like them at Walmart yesterday for $10. each.
The fountain is so relaxing.
The patio looks just like I envisioned.
I'm happy with it and my handy man did a great job putting the tile down.
I'm going to put some outdoor curtains on the patio, too.
In the evenings, the sun shines in and blinds you,
so I will post the final pics after I find some decent outdoor drapes.
My To Do list is getting shorter!
Today I painted another coat of black on my interior doors
and stained some shelves that I'm putting in the office.
So more coming soon. :)
