|Our Summer Oasis|
|I just love this space!|
|Grime and dust abound|
|No hope in site for all the LUMOT (moss)!|
|At least the moss is gone|
|ok but a little chaotic...|
|A much better umbrella I think|
The umbrella cost me a mere $35!!! It's from JCPenney on clearance ! I love its color and the shape, it totally matches our pillows.
|Outdoor dining area|
We got the 2 head chairs from target.com, the same Windsor Line ( on clearance at $416 for 2). I got the outdoor carpet for this space from Overstock.com for $199, it's from the Safaveih line.
|Outdoor Living/lounging area|
|Outdoor living area|
The outdoor living area hasn't changed much, again the furniture was on clearance 2 years ago at target.com called Windsor line from Smith and Hawken. The pillows were from restoration hardware.com, they were on clearance too, 2 years ago for $10 each!!! The birdcage was from Crate and barrel on sale as well and the yellow pots from TJ Maxx. Carpet was from Ballard designs.com for $199. The white ceramic garden stool is from wisteria.com on sale and the 2 black ceramic stools in between is from TJ maxx for $24 each.
|Privet Lane Planters from target|
Like I always mention, I am no gardener. So I bought these plants - Emerald Green shrub from The Home Depot for $19 each, and trailing petunias from Walmart. The petunias were $10 a piece, meant for hanging, but I cut the hanger off and stuck them in the planters.
The planter is from TARGET from their latest "Privet Lane" line. I like its's simplicity in an otherwise a little bit more traditional styled space. The 2 white lanterns on the back were from Home goods.
Lastly, we added this...
An outdoor projection screen!!!!! Yes, we do love our movies and what better way to enjoy them this summer than to watch them while night swimming! Cool huh?!
Outdoor TV's cost in the thousands! We thought this would do, the cost? $165 from Amazon.com
|Outdoor movie anyone?|
There you have it folks, hope you can all drop by and enjoy summer with us!
Have a nice sunny day!
