My Modern Backyard Makeover with Pops of Pink is finally here! I am loving how our modern backyard makeover has turned out. We have a new comfortable living room area, new eating area and fun chaise lounges that won’t get baked in the sun!
the living room section was sponsored by Overstock
I am so happy the One Room Challenge is done. I set a goal to redo my backyard and I accomplished it! I hope you enjoy my Modern Backyard Makeover. Check out all the Guest Participants here and see some beautiful new spaces!
FINAL REVEAL: OUR MODERN BACKYARD MAKEOVER
Modern Living Room
I am so happy with the new living room set up!!! When I was searching for a new sectional I had a couple requirements. I wanted something that was a normal height. Our last sectional was really low and I didn’t want that again. My second requirement was something that could easily be moved around. I like change! My last requirement for it was that it had to be able to withstand our crazy hot summers here in Phoenix. The Beliani White Wicker XXL Outdoor Sectional from Overstock fit every requirement. I really wanted a white because the space needed to be bright and fresh!
I added pops of color to our sectional with throw pillows. I found these fun pink Clairebella Oggi pillows to go on our Beliani White Wicker Sectional from Overstock too. They come in a pack of two and compliment my cute flamingo pillows perfectly. I had a bunch of older outdoor pillows and instead of buying all new pillows, we recovered them with fun outdoor fabric. I wanted to do this last year but only bought the fabric then. I’m so happy with the way they look together.
To complete our outdoor living room I wanted to include a rug. I was having a hard time finding one I liked because they didn’t go with the pattern on the pillows. I wanted the rug to compliment the space not compete with the space. My husband and I were outside looking at the space when he had the idea to do a faux grass rug. I wasn’t super sure of the idea but I let him run with it. I’m so glad I did because it is now perfect in the space! We may even add another one under the new dining table to tie all the spaces together!

Modern Poolside Retreat
Aren’t these chaise lounge chairs perfect!?!?!?!? I think they are. I love how they brighten up the poolside. I picked these because they are aluminum and mesh, a great choice for hot summers. I’m hopeful they will last years. We use to have big blue pillows, (check them out in this post) and I recovered them in outdoor Black & White Stripe fabric. I love stripes so it was an easy choice for me. I went with a layered pillow look and found these cute smaller pillows at Michaels Craft Store. The Cactus one is my favorite! I wanted 3 of them but when we decided to go with 5 chaise lounges they were sold out of the cactus one. Flamingo it is then! We still have a couple more pieces to add to this section before it is complete. I want to get 2 green tables like the pink ones and we ordered a big square umbrella but it hasn’t arrived yet.
Dining Room & Eating Spaces
Having a space that where can entertain is important to me. I am an extrovert and I love being around people! I want a table where all my family could sit, including Grandparents. I also want to throw dinner parties for friends. The table I picked seats 8 and has a leaf in it to expand it to hold us all. When we aren’t entertaining a larger group we can stack the chairs and store them. I also wanted a little table where my girls could easily eat a snack or their lunch while we are out playing. My oldest daughter loves to swim and I want her to be able to jump out of the pool easily to refuel.
