So here we are at the end of Barbara's home tour. But wait! There's one last "room" we want to show you. She had a small patio outside the living room/ dining room. It was pretty much a depressing slab of concrete to begin with.
|Too much sun and it overlooked the parking area.|
|But we had to make the most of it!|
|Some outdoor furniture and the rug definitely make a difference. The umbrella doesn't hurt either.|
|An outdoor storage ottoman holds all her stuff that she doesn't want to store inside.|
|She said she didn't have a green thumb so we literally gave her a black plant! |
We were hoping succulents would have a better chance of surviving.
|The candle ring on the table was a perfect find.|
|We added some lanterns and patio lights for evening ambience.|
|The hanging planters were a score from HomeGoods. We planted them with succulents and now they beautify the boring beige fence.|
|We had to be creative out here. It was our last room and the budget was wearing a little thin.|
|The patio now blends in perfectly with the inside! Just no zebra out here!|
|We put the fountain just outside her kitchen window so she can hear it while she is making dinner.|
|The perfect escape!|
