Happy Tuesday everyone!! I couldn't wait another day to show you my new favorite place in our house. I've been waiting to do the post, because I'm still looking for the perfect coffee table! At the beginning of summer I decided that it was time for a face lift on my entrance/patio. This is the first area you see when you come into our house and thought a little love wouldn't hurt, especially since I've always wanted to have an outdoor retreat to enjoy this perfect California weather.
Since we are renting I couldn't make any drastic changes, so everything I made is easily removed when the time comes we decide to move.
I ordered a couple of wood pallets from my work, bought a couple of shower curtains -yes!! You read correctly!! I used shower curtains as my fabric because they’re cheap, water prof and very easy to find amazing patterns and colors to choose from, decorative pillows, new plants and some accessories.
Starting with some of my favorite colors, I built the pallet below, and brought together all these elements, creating my ideal outdoor living space.
Before, as you can see the space served as a storage room. Now, it’s a Moroccan inspired outdoor lounge with comfortable seating for five, a coffee table and a great area to chill out, take a nap or spend an afternoon reading.
Below is the list of everything I bought to create the space. I made the gray seat cushion, but I totally forgot to take photos showing how to make your own. If you would like to know how to DIY (do it yourself), send me and email and I will be happy to answer your questions!!
- The final result!!
I'm working on getting the coffee table done. I will be posting the updates pretty soon so keep posted!!
