Let the outdoor siestas begin.... Outdoor Room 2013

Happy Thursday lovely people.

In all the craziness that was Houzz, we got our outdoor room in tip top shape a little quicker than normal and thank goodness the weather was cooperating. We only had plants in our kitchen a couple of nights for the fear of frost.

The cats thought it was their own personal forest.

After we got everything in shape we still had a couple of things on our to-do list for the season and it's more of a we'll get to it hopefully sooner than later before we are melting in the sun.

- Our back patio fries from about 6-8pm so I need to whip up a new idea for sun blockage, I am think drop down blinds.

- When the heat really gets stomping, the air gets to be little and we have been yapping about putting a ceiling fan above the below sitting area since we moved in. we're aiming for this year. maybe 

Now that's enough chatter from me. There are a lot of photos this year. 

Get yourself a glass a wine and enjoy! Geez unless it's 9 in the morning and you are having a coffee instead. Can't seem to get my brain out of patio mode.

few new bits this year, same white and black trellis pillows as the living room, the green trellis fabric i purchased from fabric.com and is a dwell studio design. the little green table was actually an old table i had sitting around doing nothing so i hit it with mms boxwood milk paint and polyurethane because it will be outside (so no waxing).

meet walter. my new favourite old gnome i named after my outdoor loving grandpa.


update: this wine barrel table got a new look as an ottoman here

i added a grainsack runner stapled to the table so it doesn't fly away and a new crate display wall.

we spent a weekend at the end of april building a new waterfall for our pond as the previous years pot was crumbling through and wouldn't hold water anymore. i will show more photos of the pond when i get some garden photos blooming.


my obsession this year. white begonias. i can't get enough. they are so romantic and pretty looking.

Thanks for visiting our outdoor space,

Have a great day,
