Everything was a mess!
We had some help clearing out the area and laying the pavers down; which I shared in this post.
A big improvement, but there was still a lot to do.
I painted the house, then gave the door a fresh-new look with a can of exterior-oops paint from Home Depot. We also gave the retaining wall bricks a good cleaning with the pressure washer.
I added few potted plants to add life to the patio.
I have a love/hate relationship with ivy on the back of the house. It can be very aggressive, so we've kept it contained to this small area.
The chairs are from Lowe's and the table and ottomans were purchased online from Home Decorators Collection.
I purchased another fiddle leaf fig. During the summer I keep them outdoors.
They're doing really well and seem to be healthy.
It's even prettier when lit.
I enjoy sitting out here with a few magazines and enjoying the breeze.
I love the look of the steps with a few potted plants.
I couldn't find a pattern that I liked, so I made a my own outdoor pillows.
So, I swapped the three in the middle for hostas. Hostas are lush, easy to grow and require minimal care.
We have a deck outside of our living/dining room, but this area is cozy and relaxed.
It's where we have our morning coffee.
And it's a great place to sit and relax with a glass of wine.
Now that the weather is starting to warm up, we’re going to be spending a lot more time out here!
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my small patio space.
