A place to relax and enjoy a glass (bottle) of wine!

With my french patio doors in I decided I needed a place to escape while in the midst of the remodeling process.  The weather was changing and commercials on TV kept telling me I needed to get my patio in SHAPE!  This was the biggest outdoor space I have had since I moved out of my parents house, so I was eager to replace what I moved in with…


To something more comfortable and able to seat more people.  I was lucky enough to open an email from Cost Plus that showed a patio set for $199!  I immediately made a trip over to the store to pay for a set and hold it!  I had resigned myself to keeping my two seater table due to the ridiculous cost of patio furniture considering I had an entire house to renovate, but this fit into this bargain shopper’s budget just fine!  I finished off the set with some accent pillows, a few candles, a new umbrella and a side table to bring in some additional color.



I also decided on some nice hanging succulent planters to give a little color to this little cement oasis!



And some ambiance at night for an astonishing $2 per light!


It makes for such a comfortable space to entertain and enjoy a cocktail after a long day!  In the midst of a remodel it is so nice to have at least one space that is put together and doesn’t emit anxiety!!!  Cheers to the summer months!

  1. This is a lovely outside space. Its amazing what you can do with a little imagination. You don’t need acres of lawn and soil to have an inviting space. Your wall planters are fab. You can get fabulous vibrant outside furniture and accessories nowadays, which instantly inject colour and style. Pots and planters are easy to maintain and re-locate. I hope you enjoy your space :O)

    • Thank you! It’s been a nice getaway from the drywall dust and missing kitchen! I even put all of the plants on a drip system so they survive my brown thumb. It’s nice to have a space to make my own that is low maintenance but can still pack a style punch! 🙂
