PALLET PATIO|SPRING REFRESH|Blogger Stylin’ Home tours
Welcome! It’s the 2nd day of the Work & Play Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours. Have you seen yesterday’s spaces? OMG! I loved touring all the spaces. My sweet friend, Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Company, hosts two-three- fantastic blogger home tours per year, and I am always looking forward to it.
This month’s theme was Work & Play. My first idea was to share my boy’s colorful room, but I never got around to clean it -ha. Alright, I do clean it. On a daily basis probably but the truth is that we had a huge neighborhood yard sale this past weekend, and I went through their toys and stuff and since then the room is a war zone.:-( So today I am sharing one of our favorite spaces in the house for the Spring/Summer season. Do you love fun pallet ideas?
Our fun and colorful Pallet patio.
We built a PALLET PATIO FURNITURE 2 years ago. The pallet furniture is kept outdoor all year around, and it looks just like we built it yesterday. Seriously. Very sturdy and there are no signs of weather or wear. The only thing I move to the garage for the winter season is the cushions and pillows. 2 years ago I decorated the space with an orange rug and large orange striped pillows mixed with some colorful smaller pillows. Since the rug had a pretty good wear being outside for two years, I decided to freshen the patio up for this spring/summer.
( from two years ago, see more HERE)
I switched out the large striped pillows for a few large, solid color outdoor pillows and I purchased a new rug from Target.
We spend lots of time out here as a family. We eat, drink, laugh, play here. I love to sit out here to paint, we invite friends, we do just about everything on this cheerful, happy patio. Thankfully our yard is super private ( which was a selling point when we purchased this house), and we don’t have to watch over our neighbors while out here.
I have not planted too many flowers just yet, but typically this corner is full of blooms and pretty flowers. The pot hanger is such a cool idea. It’s a piece of pallet leaning against the rail. You can find more on it HERE.
What do you think? I always loved blue tones but this year blue makes my heart pitter-patter. Have you seen my DIY TUFTED HEADBOARD with the lovely indigo velvet fabric? Oh, I love it (psss…you will, too).
We added some string lights over the deck last summer to make it more inviting and cozier. Check how you can add lights above your patio HERE.
I hope you enjoyed this short outdoor space tour. If you got inspired, recycle some pallets and build your patio lounge. You will enjoy it all summer!

And now be sure to visit the rest of the tours today. Next up is Jen from The Chronicles of Home. I can’t wait to see what Jen has to share. Her style is AH-mazing!
Here is the weekly line-up!
That’s so cool! I have been trying to convince my husband that we should do a pallet patio, but he hasn’t agreed yet. Yours turned out so nice. I love the colors!
I would spend my days out there…..even working! Did you make the bench cushion, by chance? I’m looking for help with one of those!!
Thanks, JoAnne. I made this cushions, yes. I got very thick foam and covered them with outdoor fabric. Have a great week!
Such a fun, happy place Aniko! Looks like the perfect spot for weekend relaxation!
I have always wanted to make a pallet sectional!!!! It looks so great! I’m so happy to have you in this tour, Aniko! I always love your bright and happy spaces 🙂
It looks beautiful friend! I love the blues!! My red rug is destroyed from leaving it out all year and definitely needs replacing!!
All of your flowers and planters are just gorgeous! This looks like such an inviting space!
Love this outdoor space! Loving all the color!
Girl. This is amazing. But my favorite part? Seeing you and your kiddos in the photos, too!
Thanks for visiting, Amber! That’s our real life captured out there:-) Xo
I am loving all the fun color! So lucky to have a private back yard. Makes enjoying the space so much easier!
Corinna, true- private backyard makes this space much more enjoyable! Hop in for a drink when you are around ( if I am correct, you are pretty close;-)) XoXo
Oh, I love this space so much! I’m sure the editors of the PB catalog would see these amazing pictures and go home. Your pallet wood furniture looks every bit as glorious as their expensive stuff!
Haha, Amanda! That’s a nice compliment! Thanks so much! We truly love it and ya know, I bet PB would love it, too:-) Xo
So fun and cozy! I love this space!!
Thanks so much, Jen! It is a cozy little corner for sure:-) Xo
You are so clever, Aniko! This all looks so pretty and cool. I loooove your use of color. I would like to sit out there with you and watch you watercolor, you are so talented 🙂
Thanks, girl! I would love you to come and watercolor with me out here! I think you are a pretty darn good watercolorer yourself:-)! Xo
LOVE this space, Aniko. Can I come hang out? (I’ll bring sweet tea and sarcastic jokes.) PS: I’m checking out your e-book…I need it!
Thanks, Heather! You sure can come to hang out:-) I have wine – I would pick your brain on some “shelfie” styling tips:-))Xo
such an amazing and cozy space, aniko! i love the way you used pallets to create it!
Thanks, Cassie! We love it, too. It will sure be the most used space throughout the upcoming months. 🙂 XoXo
So relaxing fun and pretty and I adore the photo of you painting.
Thanks, Julia! I asked my son to take a pic of me with my giant camera:-) He did a good job capturing♥ Xo
