So much to do…so little time! I’m hoping for a miracle before next Thursday! Here is my Week 4 update for the One Room Challenge! Check out all the guest participant’s progress here.
We have almost all our previous furniture sold!!!!! We only have one more item that needs to find a new home and then I’ll have my blank canvas. Surprisingly my husband sold the furniture so quickly and for such a good price! We won’t be spending any more money on our backyard than what we sold our previous furniture for. Win, Win if you ask me! And it made the husband so happy that I’m not spending a ton of money. So if you have stuff in good condition, even if it’s 7 years old, try to sell it for top dollar!
Modern Backyard Makeover Update
My white chaise lounge chairs arrived!!!! I’m so happy with them. I went ahead and ordered another one to complete the set and have one for each family member. I have some ideas for little tables to go in between them. I want to add some pops of color with them and I’m thinking pink and possibly yellow. Or do you think green would be better?
I found this cute Let’s Flamingle pillow at my Michael’s craft store and it was only $7.50! It was on sale and I used a 25% off coupon. I bought several pillows and I loved how they are so cheap! The blue pillow behind it is our old pillow from our outdoor daybed. They just aren’t my style and to be completely honest, I only bought them because they were on clearance at Target a few years ago for $6! I have a whole pile of old pillows to recover for our new Modern Backyard Makeover!
These will go from drab to fab over the next couple of weeks! I want to add the big ones to the chaise lounges and the smaller pillows will be recovered and put on the new outdoor sectional. I think these are fun outdoor fabrics. I bought them at Joann’s Fabric.
The black and white striped fabric will recover the larger pillows and the cute flamingos will cover the smaller throw pillows! I may add another fun print but haven’t decided yet. What do you think? The cushions on the new outdoor sectional are gray. It is scheduled to arrive this coming Monday!
I fell for these bistro chairs and table (it’s set against the house in the back). I just love how it will make a good place for the girls to have snacks while they are out playing in the backyard. I’m not sure where it will end up going but I just love the idea of it!
I hope next week I have a lot more to show you! The sectional should be here on Monday and the table and chairs will be here Tuesday. Can’t wait to see it come together more! Check back next week to see more progress. Check out last week’s progress and my inspiration board here.
