Allen + Roth Patio Makeover

(Disclaimer: We have partnered with Lowe’s to bring you this post. However, all opinions expressed are our own because even without the sponsorship, we heart Allen + Roth and that’s why we have their lights in every room of our home)

A few week’s ago, we gushed about one of our latest patio makeovers and shared how making over someone else’s space is not always strictly sunshine & smiles. Tackling someone else’s space means choosing products that reflect someone else’s style, which is where the love-hate relationship of taking on spaces outside our own homes lies. Love that we get to step outside our typical style and play with colors, patterns, and general looks that may not be our “norm”. Hate that we have to step outside our typical style and play with colors, patterns, and general looks because heck… what if they hate our decisions?! #PlaybookProblems

Thankfully, the love-hate relationship of this patio makeover turned out to be filled with SO much LOVE and ALL sunshines & smiles (knock on wood!). I’ll explain the details in a sec, but first… come check out the stunning transformation of this warm & sunny patio.

patio After 4Is it just us or did you just get the sudden urge to crack open a cold one, kick up your feet and relax? Sorry about that, especially on a Monday and all. But seriously, can you believe it’s even the same space?! We still find ourselves scrolling through the before and afters thinking what a huge difference some amazing new furniture and a lot of fabulous color can do. We love how much coziness and flavor the bold pops of warm color and rich furniture has brought this family’s patio. For a family that spends a lot of time socializing and relaxing on their patio, we could not have been more excited to reveal the new digs to these very grateful homeowners.

DIY-coastersPlus, we were super excited that we were able to add some personal, affordable pieces to their patio in order to make it feel even more like “home sweet home”. For example, these DIY Polaroid coasters are the perfect way to protect the table while also highlighting the family’s pride and joy, Griswold the basset hound.

A+R TableNow let’s talk about the most stunning part of the new patio, which also happens to be our favorite part of the transformation.  The furniture.

How amazing is this table?! I mean, the pictures don’t even do it justice. The color of the table adds such a rich look to the space and the material of the table is durable, sturdy and so on-trend. Outdoor RugBetween us, the whole set was assembled in under 20 minutes… like ARE YOU SERIOUS?! That’s almost unheard of in the crazy-frustrating world of building boxed furniture. Easy directions, large pieces, minimal screws….. need we say more?

Outdoor TableAnd to chalk one more thing up in the “win” column, let’s chat about how quickly this order was shipped. We ordered this Allen + Roth Table & Chairs on a Wednesday and the customer service department was calling us on Saturday to set up a convenient delivery time for Monday. Saaaayyy whaatttt, door to door service in less than a week? #neverseensuchathing

Allen Roth ChairThe cushions and pillows were also part of the Allen + Roth Patio line at Lowe’s. We heart all of the rustic colors and textures that this line has to offer. If we could coin the whole Allen + Roth “look” in two words it would be: Rich & Rustic… with “quality” sandwiched in between there. Plus, A+R isn’t limited to simply outdoor furniture. Like we mentioned before, Bridget used Allen + Roth for her light fixtures and Casey is eyeing a few A+R must-haves (stay tuned…).

Basset Hound ArtThe wood I had lying around in my garage (it was actually what I used to cover my air conditioning unit throughout the long, Chicago winter), and the paint was an old sample I had in the garage bringing the grand total of this statement art to a whopping $0.00 + tax.

And despite the unimpressed look on Griswold’s face… we know he loved it too! I mean, how could he not?!
