Around the House: Spring Patio

Monday, March 10, 2014

Happy Monday and a big Texas sized Happy Spring Break as well. We kicked our Spring Break off with a few friends gathered around our fire in the back yard. And though we have spent a lot of time around our fire pit lately, the patio remained neglected with about 10,000 leaves gathered under, around and behind our glider. Our poor patio was in desperate need of some serious TLC.

I moved everything off the patio, cleaned and swept. The stage was set for the amazing goodness I found at Target the other day. 
Here's the goodness. Doesn't look like much right now, but when you zoom into that red outlined rectangle... it gets real good. Nate Berkus gold "trash cans" marked down from $39.99 to $11.98. Not only is the price to die for, they are heavy. Really heavy. Like, flip them upside down and sit on them heavy. Hello side tables with a bonus of extra seating when needed.
At first I thought I'd set them to the sides of the glider and add a throw for an extra bit of warmth on those nights when the temps are still dipping pretty low.
I like it, but it feels unfinished. More changes... more textures. a better use of space and some pillows.

 Ahh... much better...
I'll bring out the blanket when it's needed. And as soon as it warms up a bit more, I'll be adding more plants. Eeek. I'm so excited to sit out here with warm breezes, books and wine. All the old wooden crates that used to be on our patio are being put on the wall in our mudroom for extra storage. Sneak peaks of that soon. How are you getting ready for more days and nights outside?
