    I really like the way the black and white pillows look in that room. Orange pattern would be great outdoors for a pop of color. I hope you do it!

    Love, love the Greek Key pattern. If you like Greek Key and something that looks great for cheap you have to go to Big Lots for $45 they have a great greek key stool that I bought, it is nice and heavy . I did a re-do on it for my front porch with black and white striped fabric, check it out, I think you will love it,

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
