Yesterday I shared how I painted the rainbow mural on my patio. That was such a fun project and really laid out the ground work for the rest of the space! Since we already had the furniture ready to go, it was pretty quick to put everything to for the patio reveal!
When we first moved in, the whole house was a lovely poo brown color. Pretty quickly, we decided to paint it white. The white really helped brighten up this sad state it was in.
Then, I painted the rainbow mural.
Here’s the look I was going for- a laid back boho feel. I wanted the space to be perfect for relaxing and dining al fresco. It’s a small cement pad, but I thought I could fit a small table and sofa set that’d fit our family nicely. In a nutshell, I was going for comfy, cute, bright, and fun. Want to see how it came together?
Although we don’t currently spend our evenings out here, it’s SO nice having a place to sit in the day! My son has an inflatable pool and having seating while he “swims” is nice. We also eat lunches or have Popsicle breaks here.
I put out two rugs to delineate the different spaces. To the right of the dining space is the living room area. Aka lounge and relax!
This cutie elephant table is probably my favorite piece out here! It’s adorable and the rattan is perfect for a Florida House. I’ve been searching for a vintage one like this for years, so this was so exciting to receive! I think it’s the perfect end table since the tray on the top comes to act like a tray.
This is a small set (only two adults fit on the settee). It comes with two chairs. I love that it’s more petite since it fits perfectly out here! Anything bigger would have felt crowded. This is exactly what we need.
There’s power lines right over this area which means we have electricity in our house (yay)! But it also means that the umbrella (that we keep on our DIY umbrella stand) can’t be centered in the space. It’s too tall. So it stays on the edge. It’s nice and big so it still works, but if you’re wondering why it’s not right over the table, the power lines are why!
I love, love this space! Our home is 890 square feet (so pretty small). With being home nonstop over the past few months, having extra living space outside has meant the world to us! We have used this space so much and love that it now is a lovely backdrop for our memory making here.
The paint was the main project out here. The other DIY is the umbrella stand. Then it was all about adding in the beautiful furniture. It’s all from Safavieh– a company who’s products I’ve loved using through the years. They’re so good about being affordable while still being on trend and really beautiful.
Thank you for following along with the patio makeover! Maybe in the fall I’ll work on the concrete slab (it’s badly pitted and could use some filling or maybe tiles). But even with it’s imperfections, this is one of my favorite spaces of the house!
