Today I am sharing my BOHO patio refresh.
I was invited to join this fantastic blog hop hosted by Krista over at The Happy Housie. This hop came at the right time as I have been planning on doing a mini refresh on my awesome patio that we tackled two summers ago and you know I love to showcase the changes I make around here. Wow! time flies, guys! It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 summers ago. And if you haven’t seen, our DIY outdoor kitchen was featured in Better Homes and Gardens current issue. So so honored. Truly I am!
Ok. Just for FU! Here is a before of our backyard. Because it’s a jaw-dropping BEFORE for sure.:-))
Haha! I told you it’s a good one!:-)
If you want to see more on this DIY OUTDOOR KITCHEN project, be sure to read more and get inspired.
But for now, let me just get you SEE some details of this BOHO PATIO refresh!
It all started with the macrame fringe umbrella.
I spotted this umbrella at World Market, and I had an itch to make my own. You know how much I love to macrame, right? If you have never tried it, I highly recommend that you give it a go. Check out my post on the basics of MACRAME here.
I made a little mini video tutorial on how I made the umbrella and will be sharing it tomorrow.
I was obsessed with how the fringy umbrella turned out, so I quickly got right onto making those macrame curtains for my pergola.:-) This is how I roll, normally haha.
One project creates the next!
I also added a new rug for this season. I had a plastic outdoor rug last year on the second level, and I LOVE it so much that I decided to get the same material for the lower level. The rugs I used to have always get ruined by the end of the summer and the plastic I had last year is in the same excellent shape.
So I found this awesome rug at Bed Bath and Beyond for $25. What a deal, right? And it’s 6×9′!!! And it’s double-sided. The other side is white with black design.
I love to have plants in my outdoor space. Plants make me happy. So I keep them around! I am also a sucker for cool planters and lanterns. Like I have a LOT.
And none of these are new. I have them for years and they look better and more authentic as they age.
I grabbed those two wind chimes at Target at one of the visits. They were so cute, could not leave them behind!
The second level hasn’t changed anything since last year. I love it as it is. I do!!
I was planning…Ok not planning more like playing with the idea, to add a stocktank pool, like my sweet friend has on her yard, but then I dropped the idea!! I dropped it completely.
I think it would be crazy to add one – or at least with our current summer schedule. And I just LOVE this outdoor space as is.!
Oh, one more thing…
I have a macrame hammock sitting in a garage- and hoping to find a good spot for it soon.:-))
I hope you enjoyed this mini patio refresh, friends!!!!
