Friends, I’m doing something new today. Try all the things, ya know? I’ve been RILL excited about getting new patio furniture. I’ve worked so hard to get my backyard lookin’ foiiiiine, that now I need somewhere to park it so I can enjoy looking at my hard work. Problem is, I have zero patio furniture. Between all the chaos of kids, broken pairs of goggles, deflated pool floats and half used sunscreen bottles, I just never got around to creating a beautiful patio space even back when we were a happy blended family of 7. It was functional, but not beautiful. Til now. Well, til next week when my furniture will be here.
My life came to a full stop last year when Jason died. It’s been over a year now, and redecorating has been a coping tool for me – make it less US and more ME. So far I’ve redone my son’s room, living room, office and yard (meaning I completely revamped my flowerbeds) with a few new pieces and a lot of DIY. Pics of my office coming soon – once I finish the mural.
First, a brief history of my childhood. When I was a kid, a “Fun Friday Night” was me rearranging my bedroom furniture, painting a wall or styling a room. No lie. I rearranged my room probably once a season. I had zero budget to buy new furniture and decor as a kid, so I just moved things around. Even now, I love rearranging furniture. I just rearranged my office last weekend and it wasn’t that long ago that I redid the whole thing. Obviously I have always been a wild and crazy party animal. I like how moving furniture around breathes new energy into a space for little to no cost.
I spend a lot of time outside. I love love love to just lay on a pool float and soak up the sun. I take care of all of my plant babies and just like to chill out there, but I don’t have any patio furniture. Full stop, say what? yeah. No patio furniture. I have pool seating, but it’s not under the patio. Basically I have a broken mini fridge, a grill and random tools everywhere. NOT CUTE FAM. Since I spend so much time out there, I had to make a change, but along the way I found some stuff that I LOVE. Every time I redecorate, I basically come up with 65,029 styles before I finally settle on something. There are so many options! Hopefully I took a little bit of the work out of it for you by styling a few patio options and linking some sales here.

I’ll give you 3 guesses where I drew most of my inspiration for my actual patio. I’ll post pics and links of my exact stuff when I get it in, but these colors, y’all. I love it all.
So what do we think, friends? Need more decor inspiration? Give me a room and I’ll decorate it!
