Making some progress on the back patio! If you missed the before, check out the post here.
The furniture has a new arrangement. SO much prettier this way and much more functional since the back of the couch isn't blocking everything.
Then of course there's the addition of my new table that I built! I was planning on showing you guys some details on how I put it together, but I still have some finishing work to do. Needs some sanding to even out the finish (I left some lanterns on the top and my guess is it wasn't completely dry). Whoops! And I need to apply something to protect it from the elements.
I added a mirror over the fireplace. This was another DIY I'll share later. Super easy and when compared to my inspiration mirror, saved me $600. Yeppers, 600 smackers.
I picked up some large galvanized planters at Ikea and stuck some Kimberly ferns in each one to flank the fireplace. At $40 a piece it was the best price I could find for tall planters. Why do those things have to be so expensive???
Here are the changes so far.
Left To Do:
rearrange furniture build coffee table mirror above fireplace potted ferns
- outdoor curtains
- pillows & accessories
And yes, I totally made a list of things left to do and included things I have already done just for the satisfaction of marking them off ;D
