How to Paint an Outdoor Rug

Outdoor-Rug
Earlier this summer I showed you the big reveal of our small outdoor balcony. We’re still enjoying the colorful oasis, and you’ll often find Finn & I sitting out here on a warm night. My flowers are still alive (woo hoo!) and my DIY screen door is still intact (phew!) Everything seems all good out here, right?
Well not quite. In order to add a bit of color to the balcony area, I found an outdoor rug in teal. I loved the pattern and the pop of color…but if I was being perfectly honest with myself, the rug was just way too small.
See…
too small outdoor rug
…it’s cute, but just not large enough for the space. I headed to a few stores and even did a little online shopping to try to find a larger outdoor rug.  I thought it would be a quick and painless process, but boy was I wrong.
First of all, most of the rugs were just way too large for the space. I needed something 4×6, but couldn’t find anything smaller than 6×8 that might work. Then to add to my frustration, almost every rug was incredibly expensive. I’m talking over $100 for a rug that I knew was just going to sit outside and get kinda gross.
So since I couldn’t purchase the perfect outdoor rug, I knew I would have to DIY one.
I found this rug online at Home Depot. It was 6×8 (too big for our small balcony) but was only $17.88. I figured I could purchase the rug and see if there would be a way to cut it in half. For less than $20, it was worth a shot.
Now I know what you’re thinking…that rug isn’t exactly the prettiest thing on the block. Well, I had a solution for that too. Paint!
Behr paint sample
I purchased 5 paint samples in a variety of colors, and each was less than $3! Since I wanted to paint multiple colors onto the rug, I figured this was the most cost effective option. Be sure to buy paint that works well outdoors. I purchased indoor/outdoor paint, so I knew it would hold up on our balcony.
painting supplies
Then I grabbed a few more supplies, including paint brushes, a drop cloth, and some extra duct tape I had leftover from our office accent wall project.
measuring rug
When the rug arrived, I instantly knew I would have no trouble cutting it down to the right size. It was incredibly lightweight and very thin (that’s what happens when a rug is only $18!) But I didn’t mind at all, it was going to work perfectly for this project. I measured it out, and drew a line splitting the rug into two equal parts.
cutting a rug
Then I simply used scissors to cut my rug. Instead of one large 6×8 rug…I now had two 4×6 rugs. It worked out so well that I cut a rug right there in our family room (pun definitely intended, please picture me joyfully dancing when my plan worked!)
duct tape stripes
Next up…painting! I figured stripes would be the easiest “design” for me to tackle. I decided to go with a variety of widths…2 inches, 4 inches, and 6 inches for the stripes. I attempted to plan everything out ahead of time…but I’m not one for math and I was just too eager to paint. So I just went for it and figured if I screwed up, I had another rug right there ready to go.

Rookie Tip: After painting my first stripe, I quickly realized that I needed a way to get the paint down into the fibers of the rug. Finn suggested I use a scrub brush to really work the paint down in there. That man is a genius…it totally worked! I definitely suggest buying a pack of cheap sponges for this stage of the project. Use the hard side of the sponge to work the paint around. I only had one sponge on hand, so I had to wash it in between every color…learn from me and spend a couple bucks for more sponges.
I let the rug dry for a day or so, and then it was time for its balcony debut!

To say I love it would be an understatement. It’s absolutely fabulous. The size is 1000x better than the dinky one we had out there before, and I just can’t get enough of those preppy stripes.

The blues, whites, and pop of yellow work really well together. Plus it goes well with the other accessories and flowers we already have on our balcony.

It’s been out there for a couple weeks now, and it really is holding up well! We’ve had lots of storms but it still looks fresh and the color has not faded.

I figure I’ll give this little guy a year, and then next summer I can use a new pattern and colors on the other half of the rug.

This project cost less than $30 for the rug and all of the supplies, plus I still have half a rug left for next year! It may have taken a couple hours to paint the stripes, but to me it was time well spent. I’m now even more in l-o-v-e with our outdoor oasis.

    That’s pretty adorable, especially when there is a lot of scope to re-use old stuff or to make creative use of leftovers from previous projects. Those, blues, whites, and pop of yellow work will do for sure.

    Hey! Thanks for all the tips on how to paint an outdoor rug, I was wondering did the paint leave the rug a weird texture? As in if I was to be barefoot on the rug would it feel rough? Thank you!

      Thanks Erica, and great question. No, where we painted isn’t extra “rough” on bare feet. I guess it’s slightly different than the rug texture but both very safe for bare feet to walk on. =) We’ll definitely be making more this year.

    Please share your color choices. These are the colors I am hoping for. I have a large deck to cover & could never afford a large enough rug for it. Luckily, I found the perfect size new on Craigslist for $30 (8×10), but it’s boring. I can’try wait to spruce it up!

      Andrea, I’m so sorry but I don’t have the exact colors on-hand anymore. Sorry about that! I just tried to find good blues and a pop of yellow in the small paint samples. Love the idea to spruce up an old rug from Craigslist. Good luck!

Our Summer Chicago Balcony

Balcony-Makeover
Earlier this week, I showed you guys how I re-screened our patio door all by myself. Can you tell I’m proud? Now that we have a working screen door there was no excuse for the sad state of our balcony.
Balcony before
Since we moved here in October, we haven’t been able to fully appreciate this cozy outdoor space. That’s because it was one heck of a winter, and there was no way we were going to freeze our tooshies off out here.  We threw some old patio furniture and a rug out there and called it a day. The only real update the balcony ever received was our new grill.
Well when the temps finally (finally!) turned, it was time to add a little life and color to this dull and dreary balcony.
balcony makeover
Since much of our home is pretty neutral (lots of tan, gray, and small hints of blue) I knew that I wanted to infuse some color into the space. Bring on the pinks, yellows, and bright blues!
Fresh flower pots really helped with my color mission.
flower pot and watering can
I purchased these 2 gorgeous pots and I’m obsessed with the bright fuchsia color. It adds just the right pop of pink to the balcony. I’m hoping my brown thumb doesn’t get in the way of these, because they truly are gorgeous. I’m going to keep watering with my adorable watering can (from Target) and fingers crossed these flowers last all summer long!

Our grill is still chilling on the left side of our balcony. The red color doesn’t exactly match my color scheme, but I’m just happy to have a little color and life out here. Plus, this grill has truly been fantastic. We use it all the time and grill a bunch of chicken and veggies every week. I just know we’ll continue to fire this thing up throughout the summertime.

I did purchase a few outdoor accessories from HomeGoods to really brighten up the space. The yellow citronella candle keeps the bugs at bay. Plus it’s nice and heavy, so I can leave it outside and not worry about it blowing over.

The turquoise place mats are a personal fave because they’re sturdy and won’t blow away either! I have some other fabric place mats and they just wouldn’t stay still during windy dinners. These add some fun color, pattern, and texture when I set our bistro table.
The geometric rug brightens up the dull concrete ground, and so far it’s holding up fine in the weather. I wish I would have purchased a slightly larger rug for the space, but I’m just happy to have something out here.
summer pink drink
It’s safe to say I’m in love with our little outdoor oasis. It may be small, but there’s nothing like pouring a summer cocktail and sitting out here to people watch…

…and take in the gorgeous city skyline. Cheers to summer!

How to Re-Screen a Sliding Door

New-Screen-Door
It was a long winter here in Chicago, and we’re all very happy to no longer hear 2 scary words (“polar vortex”). The moment it became even somewhat warm outside, Finn & I opened the windows, pushed open the patio door, and breathed in the fresh spring air! We have a great little balcony area that we really enjoy, and it’s great to open up the sliding door and let lots of sunshine and air inside our condo.
On one particularly nice spring night, we grilled dinner and enjoyed a couple drinks outside, leaving our sliding door wide open. When we came back indoors, we looked on the ceiling and I screamed. There were bugs and flies all over the place. Holy hell, you should have seen me. Poor Finn had to spend all night trying to get all of the flies back outside, while I huddled in the corner with a blanket over my head until he gave the all clear.
After that incident…it was clear that we needed to add a screen door to our balcony. No more bug city in our place. (side note: remember the candy Bug City? I looooved those!)
how to re-screen a sliding door
open balcony door
We lucked out and actually found the sliding screen door (that was supposed to be on our door) tucked behind our washing machine in our unit. So we had the first step down, but we still need to “screen” the screen door. I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit intimidated…I’ve never done this before! But after reading about it online, I headed to Ace Hardware and came home with all of the supplies to tackle this DIY project.
spline

The first thing you will need is called spline. Spline is a flexible strip that you insert into the grooves of the door to hold the screen in place. It comes in multiple sizes, so I made sure to check out my screen door before heading to the store.

mesh screen

Then you’ll obviously need some screen.

spline roller
Also, be sure to grab a spline roller. It’s a little pizza cutter looking thing that you’ll use to push the spline into the grooves of the screen door.
utility knife
A utility knife will come in handy to cut any excess screen, so be sure to keep that nearby.
Okay, so that’s seriously all you need for this project. The screen door, screen, spline, spline roller, and a utility knife. Boom, done.
lay mesh screen on door
To begin, I laid out the screen door flat on the ground. Then I laid the screen over it, making sure it stayed straight across.
using spline
Next, I grabbed the spline and used the spline roller to insert it into the groove of the side.
using a spline roller
The spline roller is a must for this step. It gets the spline in there nice and snug, and really helps to keep the screen secure. Be sure to pull the screen tightly across, and re-adjust as you go around the perimeter of the screen door. You don’t want the screen to be lopsided, and you also don’t want it to be too loose on the door. Go slow, take your time, and get the screen on there nicely.
cutting mesh with utility knife
Once you’ve got the spline wrapped around all 4 sides of the screen door, grab that utility knife and cut off the end of the spline. Then carefully cut the excess screen from each side. I say carefully, because you definitely don’t want to accidentally cut the screen. That would ruin all of your hard work. That would be no bueno.
Once you’re all done with that, use the spline roller once more to give the entire perimeter a good once over. You just want to make sure the spline is in there to stay, because that’s the only thing holding the actual screen in place.
spraying slide-all
Finally, the door was re-screened and up on the tracks. But, it was a bit difficult to open and close so I grabbed some spray lubricant to get the tracks nice and greased up.
slide-all
A few sprays of this stuff, and we were good to go!
screen door
So there you go…that’s how you re-screen a sliding door. Not that difficult right? For some reason this project totally intimidated me, but luckily my worries were unfounded. Not the most glamorous DIY project, but definitely a necessary one!

We can now enjoy the nice Chicago breeze…minus the bugs. Bring on those warm summer nights!

    OK, back up. What about the door handle? Does that come off before you do this, and back on afterwards. I have one that’s torn around there. I didn’t think it came off easily. I will re-check when I get home. Maybe you could describe the different types of screen. You would want a sturdy one for a door.

    Reply
    1. DIY Playbook

      You’ll take the door handle off on the side where you’re inserting the new screen. You’ll just need a screwdriver and can simply unscrew some small screws on there. As for the screen, it depends on where your door is and the use it gets. They have more durable ones specific for pets, but the thicker you go…the harder it is to re-screen. Good luck!

    2. Marguerite Shipley

      Thanks. And in that case, I may just remove that door thingee, and patch that section with a screen patch. It’s a door that’s not used much.

Organizing Grill Supplies

Grill Supplies
(Disclaimer: We have partnered with Sears to bring you this post. However, all opinions expressed are our own and are not influenced by Sears.)
sears grill
Grilling season is right around the corner in the Chicagoland area (okay maybe not right around the corner…but these girls can dream, right?!), and we cannot wait! Both Casey and I have been practicing our grilling skills (thanks to these amazing grills) and it was time to get our grill accessories & patio paper-ware organized.
bbq tools
No doubt, there are a lot of tools and patio accessories that go hand-in-hand with grilling and outdoor entertaining. Keeping all of this “stuff” organized and in one spot will help make sure you don’t forget to use those adorable napkins or you won’t go out and buy more plastic silverware when you already have some hiding somewhere else in the house. Although it may not be patio season just yet, it’s never too early to get organized (& excited!) for the upcoming festivities.
thrift store box
I scored this $3 wooden box at a local thrift shop. It was the right price and seemed like the perfect size to hold all of my backyard goodies.
dragon lid
One problem …the lid. “Dragons Krystal Wars” was not the look I was going for to organize my grilling accessories.
blue green ikat
My solution to this? Reupholstering the lid. I bought this outdoor ikat fabric from JoAnn and cut it a little larger than the Dragon lid.
padding
Using a knife, I cut the padding to the size of the lid as well.

From there, all I needed to do was wrap the fabric and staple it onto the bottom side of the lid.

In no time, there was no more trace of Dragon warfare, and I was left with a trendy little box that was ready to be filled with lots of summer essentials.

vera bradley napkins
I used an old container I had laying around the house to hold some of the napkins and these corn holders (if that’s even what they are?). Putting the “small” stuff in their own container helps keep the box far more organized and less cluttered.

Then, I put the remaining plastic silverware, grill tools, napkins, plates, and drink container into the box…all very neatly of course.

With this ikat lid, you can’t even tell what is in the box, which is my favorite part of this storage solution. The box is extremely functional, but can be used as a decorative piece in the house or even on the patio in a few months. I will eventually spray the fabric with scotch guard, just in case it ends up outside for good. For now, I’m feeling far more organized & ready to welcome some warm weather to get grilling!

DIY Beer Tray

Beer Tray for Dad
Any beer lovers tuning in? If there are… forgive me. I am n.o.t. a beer drinker (not even a little) so my knowledge of beer and the appropriate language that reflects this world of all things beer is non-existent.
I may not know much about beer, but there is one thing I do know about it. Loyal beer lovers have an entire language and lifestyle that revolve around their favorite brews. So when my brother-in-law and avid beer fan celebrated a birthday recently, I knew that I could try my hand at a craft beer, wait… I mean a beer craft.
Introducing the beer lover’s beverage tray.
how to DIY a tray
This DIY tray is the perfect personalized gift for any beer fan, because it can reflect that secret language and those favorite brews you beer lovers spend so much time dreaming about.
beer tray supplies
To start off, here’s what you’ll need:
-Circular wood piece (can be found at Home Depot in the lumber aisle for around $5)
-Mod Podge
-Paintbrush/Sponge (or both)
-Credit card or old gift card (not pictured but so important to eliminate air bubbles when mod podging)
-Printed COLORED labels of your favorite beers (I used google images to find mine and printed two copies of each label.. at least)
print beer labels

The first thing you should do is cut out each label. Like I said, I printed two of each of the labels. It’s better to have too many than not enough. Because there is some layering that is involved and awkward sides to cover when folding over the labels, it’s better to have lots of labels at VARYING sizes.

mod podge tray
Using mod podge, I attached one label at a time until the entire tray was covered (no rhyme or reason in placing the labels).
Here are a few tips I would recommend when mod podging the labels onto the tray:
1. Apply mod podge onto the tray AND onto the label separately, and then place the label onto the mod podged area.
2. After placing the label onto the mod podged area of the tray, use an old credit card or old gift card to eliminate any air bubbles under the label and to secure all sides onto the tray. Some extra mod podge may ooze out of the sides… that is a good thing!
3. If you want, paint some mod podge onto the top or sides of the labels for extra coverage. Trust me… although it looks cloudy, the mod podge will dry CLEAR and will not damage the label, but will make sure the label stays flush against the tray.
4. Folding the labels over the sides of the tray can be tricky. The paper will probably crease along the edges. That is okay! As long as it is not creased on the top of the tray, or as long as there are no air bubbles anywhere…everything is okay. The creases add some character.
5. Make sure you apply mod podge to bottom of the tray before applying a label that will wrap around to the back. Like Tip #1 says, there must be mod podge on both the tray and the label before the two meet.
labels
The sides are awkward when wrapping the labels around. For the few parts that were still bare after wrapping the labels around, I cut some pieces of the remaining labels to size and attached them in each bare location.
diy beer tray

Once the entire tray is covered and you are happy with the “design”, paint a full layer of mod podge all over the tray and all over the sides of the tray. I know, I know… this doesn’t sound safe for the paper, but trust me, the tray will dry CLEAR. You will NEED this layer of mod podge to protect the paper before moving onto the next steps, so do not skip the top layer of mod podge.

Before moving on to the next step, let your tray dry OVERNIGHT.

handles
Now, it’s time to add some handles to your tray and WATERPROOF your tray so it can hold drinks, resist spills and be a part of any patio party without a problem.
 
For this part, you will need:
-2 handles with screws (I bought mine in the hardware aisle on sale for $2 each)
-Screw driver
-Power Drill (to drill holes into the tray)
-Super Glaze (Pour on High Gloss)
-Stir Stick
-3 plastic cups
-Drop Cloth
-Cardboard for extra safe work area (optional)
-Something to elevate the tray when pouring on the glaze (I used a paint can)
-Level
putting on the handles

Okay, now it’s time to drill your holes for the handles. Make sure to drill from the top of the tray down, this will help eliminate the possibility of your labels ripping. Once you drill the holes, insert the screws on the back and use the screw driver to secure the handles. Try and tighten the handles enough so that they are flush against the back of the tray and the tray can sit on a table top without wobbling.

handles on DIY tray

I decided to attach the tray’s handles BEFORE the pour-on glaze because I didn’t think it would be a good idea to drill into the glazed surface after the fact.

label tray
Finally, all that is left to do is to waterproof this baby!!
level tray
This part was definitely a little intimidating at first. I am not at all familiar with pour on glaze and knowing that this step was “make or break” made me extremely nervous.
After doing a little research about pour on glaze, I kept finding one tip: MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY. So that’s exactly what I did. I read the directions several times and literally followed them to a T.
supplies
The super glaze that I used instructed me to use three plastic cups and a wooden stir stick. The directions were extremely detailed and very clear. I poured the two mixtures accordingly, followed the precise stirring times and directions, and worked as carefully as I could.
glazing a tray

Now that I’ve lived through super glazing, I would give the same advice: Follow the directions EXACTLY and you will be okay. But I would also add- wear gloves, open a window, and be ready to let your project sit for at least 72 hours (yup, that baby isn’t going anywhere fast).

72 hours of “curing” later, my DIY beer tray was completely waterproof & ready to be served to the birthday boy!

    The tray turned out fantastic! Speaking of craft brews, I got my boyfriend hooked on making his own beer. His first batch actually turned out good (or so people say, I wouldn’t try it)

      With all of those beer lovers in your life, you’re going to be one busy lady!! Unfortunately, I would NOT recommend using six-pack labels because I’d think they will be too thick. I’d stick with the printed image of each of the beers. Good luck!!

      Great question, Doris, I should have addressed that in the post. I actually screwed the nails in deep enough so they are not poking out of the back. If this wasn’t the case, I would advise adding felt pads to protect the table.

      Girls – I posted a picture of my finished beer tray to your instagram page. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this glaze finish. I am thinking of doing the same finish to my corn hole boards. However, do you think that would be too slick for the corn bags and make the game too difficult to play?

    3. DIY Playbook

      OMG! I have to go check and see!!! I love the glaze too… it just looks so professional. I see what you mean with the boards though… hmmmmmm, they’d look good?!

      Yes, I am a private user. I’m still trying to get a hang of this Instagram thing and didn’t realize that you wouldn’t be able to see my picture. I also used hashtag #beertray. Can you see it that way?

      Emily,
      I’ll try and be as thorough as possible. I only covered the top of the tray because the bottom of the tray will sit on the table (with pads attached to protect the table). So all I did was put one coat of the glaze on top of the tray, spread it evenly throughout the tray and on the rounded edges of the tray. Once that was dried, I attached the felt bottoms to the tray and I was done! I hope this helps, let me know if I can provide any extra tips. I’d love to see the finished product!! Good luck =) You’re more than half way there!!!!

      How did you spread the glaze on the tray and the rounded edges? You used felt bottoms on the tray? Where can I find those? I did a slight variation on mine. My birthday boy is a Scotch lover so I used scotch labels instead of beer. It’s such a great project. Thanks for sharing it!

    3. DIY Playbook

      Even better… that sounds awesome! I’m sure he’s going to love it and be super impressed! I used a straight edge (an old ruler to be exact) and spread it evenly. The glaze actually spreads itself for the most part, the ruler just helped urge it a little more. The felt sticky bottoms are sold at any hardware store or even at places like Target.

    I love this! I have one question before I try this out. You mentioned how to spread the glaze with the old ruler. How did you specifically do the round edges? Did you “push” the glaze to the edge with the ruler and let it “run off” or did you “paint” it on? I guess I’m confused as it won’t stay on the round edge as it does on the larger flat surface area. Does all that make sense??

      Thanks Manny! I know exactly what you’re saying and I did a mixture of both, but used more of the push the glaze with the ruler and the run-off covered the edges. The places where the run off was not covering, I would “paint” it on. I would ale note that the edges did not have as “thick” of a coat of glaze as the actual board. And if you do use the run-off method, make sure you check the bottom edges of the board. Sometimes the run-off goes under the board and drips down like small icicles. Before it dries, I would try and scrap those drips off so the bottom of the board is as flush as possible. Make sense?

      Good luck!! So happy you’re giving this project a try! =)

    2. Manny

      Thanks so much for that info! I guess I’m going to give it a go. While spreading out the glaze, I’ll try to leave it as think as possible? I don’t want to “thin” it by trying to get it to the edges.

    The tray turned out fantastic! Speaking of craft brews, I got my boyfriend hooked on making his own beer. His first batch actually turned out good (or so people say, I wouldn’t try it)

    Such an awesome creation, I love it! My life is full of craft beer lovers and we have tons of caps/labels/beer paraphernalia in my closet just begging to be put to use. Do you think actual six-pack labels would be too thick to work for this project?

      With all of those beer lovers in your life, you’re going to be one busy lady!! Unfortunately, I would NOT recommend using six-pack labels because I’d think they will be too thick. I’d stick with the printed image of each of the beers. Good luck!!

      Great question, Doris, I should have addressed that in the post. I actually screwed the nails in deep enough so they are not poking out of the back. If this wasn’t the case, I would advise adding felt pads to protect the table.

      Girls – I posted a picture of my finished beer tray to your instagram page. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this glaze finish. I am thinking of doing the same finish to my corn hole boards. However, do you think that would be too slick for the corn bags and make the game too difficult to play?

    3. DIY Playbook

      OMG! I have to go check and see!!! I love the glaze too… it just looks so professional. I see what you mean with the boards though… hmmmmmm, they’d look good?!

    4. Trang

      Yes, I am a private user. I’m still trying to get a hang of this Instagram thing and didn’t realize that you wouldn’t be able to see my picture. I also used hashtag #beertray. Can you see it that way?

    Love the colors, can’t believe the before & afters. I love everything at Home Decorators Collection, it’s hard to decide what I’d spend the $150 on. Maybe Christmas gifts? Yes, I’d spread the HDC love.

    Bridget, everything looks phenomenal!! You did such a great job decorating the patio, it makes me want to do something with our backyard! There are so many options to choose from at HDC, but I would probably also buy patio furniture since the inside of our house is pretty full as is 😉

    Ahhhh, thanks Deanne! I’m still trying to figure out a way that we can incorporate your amazing idea of hanging the ladder for outdoor lighting. #obsessed. Maybe next summer we’ll add that to our to-do list.

Patio Makeover Series: the dirty work

Excuse the mess, we are currently knee deep in all things dirt, dust, and overall ugliness. As we mentioned before, the Longview Lodge is undergoing a facelift- complete with new landscaping, actual grass, fresh trees, and even a fabulous patio. We started off with this mess….

And now, thanks to our non-DIY landscaping skills, a group of hardworking professionals have transformed the original mess into a whole new level of ew. But trust me when I say: this craziness we call our property will be worth it in the end.  

This is a pile of all the random roots that were hiding under the layer of weeds we used to call our lawn. I’m sure our lawnmower won’t miss running over these bad boys anymore.

Here are some progress pictures of our future patio (check out my vision for this future space here)!
 
It’s coming around… kinda?


These large holes will eventually be filled with some privacy pines. I’m thinking that “privacy pines” is not the official name for them, but you get the point.

No more weeds! Hip, Hip, Hoo-ray!

A large part of this landscaping remodel is based on installing a pipe system that will take care of any standing water on the property, hence the need to call in the professionals. These deep ditches will allow all of the gutter water to tie into this sophisticated drainage system that will be installed throughout the property.

 
While we’re landscaping, we decided to add a little more curb appeal to our front yard. The landscaping professional insisted that it would be best if we took out what we had and started from scratch. Rest assured that we found a new home for the old plants around our property, but took his advice and provided him with a blank slate for him to work.his.magic.
Clearly, we they still have quite a bit of work to do, but I could not be more excited to welcome whatever is in store. As they finish up, I’ll be busy shopping for some fun accessories to add to the patio furniture I recently purchased.
home decorators collection patio furniture

Choosing what patio furniture to purchase was no easy task, but after I finally decided, I couldn’t be more excited. I figured we should probably invest in a quality set that will last us, rather than purchasing a cheap set that will look worn and torn too quickly. The price tag was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but in the end, I think it was the best option for our space and circumstances.

This set should be in the mail from Home Decorators Collection in no time! It should be arriving around the same time as our landscapers will be heading out (for good).

Patio Makeover Series: Part I

Remember when I mentioned that our house was undergoing a landscape makeover, complete with a full patio? I explained that ever since we bought our house, the curb appeal was less than desirable. I think I was being far too generous when I referred to our landscaping as “undesirable”… you be the judge.

Landscape Makeover- Before

When we bought the house, there wasn’t a door leading out to this potential patio space. We knew one day we wanted the opportunity to entertain on a fabulous patio, so we had a window removed and replaced it with the door you see above.

For the past 9 months, this door has led to this secret garden of weeds, old tree stumps, and a whole lot of ugliness. Our “one day” is almost here, as we have added the patio blueprint to the landscaping makeover!

Landscape Makeover- Before

Standing on the “one day” patio looking out into the backyard, this is what you’d see. More weeds, old stumps, and unfortunately…even more ugliness.

Landscape Makeover- Before

Here’s a view of a walkway we hope to create leading to the patio. It’s so ugly, I don’t even think weeds want to hang out here.

Landscape Makeover- Before

We hope to ditch the red rock and take care of the random air vents that are so awkwardly being held up by old building materials…

Landscape Makeover- Before

…like this.

Landscape Makeover- Before

And possibly the worst part of this whole makeover… this random hole. According to some local research, there used to be a huge willow tree in this space that fell over in a storm. The dirt that was brought in to fill the hole must have been from a swamp-like area, because we had all things swamp growing within this mystery. Cattails, swamp grass, muddy muck… it’s in there somewhere. It’s not that I don’t love a swamp now and then, I just don’t want one growing in my yard.

Landscape Makeover- Before

On a positive note, the front yard wasn’t home to many weeds. To be honest, the front yard wasn’t home to much of anything alive.

All of our grass died when we moved in and ironically, never fully grew back. So this patchy, brown, uneven front yard needed to be taken care of as well.

Landscape Makeover- Before

See what I mean? Hopefully with some new grass, our neighbors will stop wondering about the only brown lawn on the block.

Landscape Makeover- Before

While we’re at it, we hope to add a little more pizazz to this area as well. We plan to relocate what’s here and add some larger, more attractive plants. Hello fabulous curb appeal.

Landscape Makeover- Before
Clearly, our property needs some serious TLC. As much as I wish we could DIY this makeover, this job is far larger than this DIY Rookie and her handsome +1 can handle. 
With a lot of debate, some serious research and tedious number crunching, we have decided to hire this project out to the professionals. Matt and I are excited to hand over our to-do list to some local pros and see how they can take this weed friendly space and transform it into one that can grow grass. Is that too much for a girl to ask?

Patio Inspiration

(Disclaimer: We have partnered with Home Decorators Collection to bring you this post. However, all opinions expressed are our own and are not influenced by Home Decorators Collection.)
This just in: Bridget’s getting a new patio and brand new landscaping! 
It’s no secret around here that since we bought our house last November, the curb appeal has been less than desirable. Thankfully, that’s about to change. We are knee deep in a landscaping makeover, complete with a brand new patio (my favorite part of course). 
Along with any patio comes a whole lot of decorating potential, which makes this dirty landscaping project a lot more tolerable. Today, I’m teaming up with the fabulous Home Decorators Collection to share my vision of my someday-soon, new outdoor living space. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Patio Inspiration from HDC

Source List Here 

1. Home Decorators Collection (HDC) has teamed up with Martha Stewart Living to create patio furniture to die for. This color combo is the inspiration behind my whole patio remodel, but it also comes in a variety of other colors, like the amazing one Casey’s mom used to makeover her patio. I’m head-over-heels in love with the whole line. 
2. HDC also hit a grand slam with this outdoor rug. I love the texture it provides while being neutral and calming all at the same time. To me, a outdoor rug is a perfect way to add coziness to outdoor spaces that can sometimes seem less than cozy.
3. This industrial light fixture would be the perfect contrast to our red brick house and new pavers! I can’t resist a fun light fixture, thanks HDC!
4. This little side table is perfect to add color, texture and a little bit of fun! 
5. Crisp white is always my go-to accessory color and this bowl is the perfect ticket. I love its clean, fresh look. I’m envisioning some succulents in this bad boy or maybe an outdoor snack? Either way, it’s a keeper!
6. Outdoor clocks… I’m obsessed. I’m not exactly sure why, but you can bet that I will find me a clock to add to the new patio. 
7. A tray is essential to add function and fashion to any living space. This one is adorable, but I hope to find (or DIY) one that can add a bit of meaningful personality to our new space!
8. HDC does it again with this calming, geometric pillow. I love that this pillow complements the furniture, while also adding a pop of pattern. You can definitely expect lots of pillows on our patio. 
9. Italian Lights will be a must, but may not be added until next year. We plan to build a pergola and dress that baby up with strands of these fabulous lights. 
So here ya have it, the break down of my patio inspiration! I’m so excited to kick off my landscaping/patio series by partnering up with Home Decorators Collection! HDC is spot on with my patio vision, but has far more than just outdoor essentials to choose from. You can check out their outdoor line at your local HomeDepot, or peek at everything else amazing on their site
Stay tuned as we take you on our crazy journey of remodeling our backyard to create an extension of our little lodge.  In the meantime, bring on the dirt…
