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!
