My Deck Makeover

I moved into my new place about a month ago so for me, everything is new.  I have things where I like them for now, but as I told my husband, I haven’t even begun to decorate yet!  I am just now unpacking all my decor so my house is currently a work in progress.  I guess it always will be really.  Who ever says they are done decorating and changing things in the house?  NO ONE EVER!  I am having fun working in a new space and eventually I will get to painting some rooms, but not for a while yet as I want to settle in and relax a bit first.  Luckily our landlord allows me to paint the walls and to hang things…what a blessing that is!  For now, I did take some time to work on my back deck.  It is just a small deck, but it is perfect for my family to hang out on and have ice cream parties or just to sit quietly and have some coffee.  We moved later in the season so I opted to pick up a cute and very inexpensive wicket set I found on Craigslist for $25.  Yes, I am the bargain queen.  That’s just how I roll.  I was able to sew up some cute cushions for the chairs and loveseat thanks to Wholeport who proivided this glorious array of scrumptious fabrics:

With such beautiful fabric, how could I go wrong?
Such beautiful colors!
And nice fabric, too… very good quality.
I added some little touches and the cushions and my deck became MUCH more inviting.

  1. With a place that pretty it would be hard to get anything done but sitting out on the deck! Love those gorgeous fabrics.

  2. I never would have combined those fabrics, but they turned out so great. I love them. I wish I was more daring, since that looks so fantastic.

    I love the bargain furniture too.. I need to go shopping with you!
