Patio Update: Lido Stripes

  1. Annie Kelly says:

    I have completely copied your table and chairs and now am going to order those cushions 🙂 What about the bench? Are you doing a cushion for the bench? We just had a new patio built so this table and chairs looks fabulous. Thanks! You have great ideas 🙂

      Hi Annie!

      I couldn’t find a cushion for the bench in the perfect dimensions. I just ordered one from Home Decorators that is 15″ x 45″ and I’m hoping it fits and isn’t too large. It shipped today. I will report back!

    I’ve been agonizing over ordering those chairs. Several of the reviews on Overstock said that they found them too small. Do you think that’s the case? How comfortable are they? I’d love to know if they sit as well as they look!

      I haven’t found them too small. I’m on the small side though at only 5ft 4″ and my husband is about 5ft 9″ so we are not the tallest people, but for us they are comfy.

        We are tall (5’8″ and 6’3″) have these chairs. They are not too small for us! My husband thinks they are pretty comfy and he is very picky.

        Camilla – fantastic rec. on these cushions. I’ve been looking forever for something similar and wasn’t able to get the right size/price. THANKS!

  3. Those are perfect. I love how fresh and summery they are.

  4. You are right–this fabric has great spacing between the stripes! I love it! Great source–thanks so much for sharing! Love that it is available by the yard…I kinda want to have an indoor sofa recovered in it 🙂

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

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.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

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 […]
