9 Affordable Ways to Update Your Outdoor Living Space

Now that spring is here and we are finally getting some gorgeous weather, I knew it was time to direct my full attention towards the outdoor patio area.  It has been a disaster – and I mean that literally- thank you Hurricane Harvey!!  We are almost 2 years out from the flood, and still working on things.  The good news – is that we were able to save most of our outdoor furniture.  Bad news – let’s just say that everything else needed an update or floated away!!  So, since that’s what I have been working on for the last month, I thought it would be a perfect time to share those tips with you.  9 Affordable Ways to Update Your Outdoor Living Space.

***UPDATE *** I will do another post on the actual backyard makeover with before and after pictures of the flood.  Hopefully coming soon!!  Spring Home Tour 2019, 10 Ultimate Outdoor Summer Party Essentials, DIY Painted Flower Pot Tutorial:  Blue Top, and 14 Easy Patriotic & Memorial Day ecorating Ideas are now ready!!

9 AFFORDABLE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE 

Just wanted to say that taking pictures of our outdoor patio area was like taking my 2 girls to a photo shoot when they were 2 and 3 years old – cra-ZEE!!!  Some days it was too sunny, or too rainy, and then too cloudy, or a little too windy – LOL!!

And just when I thought I had the perfect picture, I’d get to my computer only to realize that the TRAMPOLINE was peeking out somewhere – ugh!! – even after I had already moved it out of the way!!  Just keeping it REAL ladies 😉

OK – let’s get to it!!


9 AFFORDABLE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE

*** I have provided links to some of the items that I used in our patio makeover, but will continue to add more as I find them.  Some of our items were purchased from Home Goods and Tuesday Morning, and do not have direct links.  So, I chose items (links) that are similar, or would work with our colors.  Thnx 🙂 ***

*Pictures of items are included at the end of post if you need them.*

9 AFFORDABLE WAYS:

  1. Chaise Lounge Chair Cushions – Striped Chair Cushion, Option 2
  2.  Bar Stool Cushions  (18.5×15.5×3)- Striped Cushion, Option 2
  3.  Dining Chair Cushions (20x20x3) – similar 1similar 2, similar 3, similar 4
  4.  Throw Pillows – similar 1, similar 2, similar 3, similar 4, orange 1, orange 2, orange 3, orange 4
  5.  Plants/Planters – resin terra cotta 1, resin 2, resin 3, *LARGE terra cotta pot*, SMALL dark blue planter, LARGE blue pot
  6.  Accent Tables/Ottomans – Table – option 1, option 2, Ottoman – blue/orange
  7.  Rugs – Navy/Ivory, Blue/Gray
  8.  Add Lights
  9.  Umbrellas – w/lights, without lights, umbrella stand

*LARGE terra cot pot- is smaller size than the one I have – just wanted to give you a heads up *

***  Remember, you don’t have to get everything in one year.  Choose a couple of items to update for one summer, and then work on the other items the following year.  If you choose more classic styles for some of your larger items (like chair cushions), you will be able to use them for a longer period of time.  That way you can change out the smaller items (like throw pillows) more frequently. ***


9 AFFORDABLE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE 

#1 – CHAISE LOUNGE CHAIR CUSHIONS

Updating your pool lounge chair cushions is one of the easiest ways to give new life to your backyard patio, without breaking the bank.  Choose colors and patterns that are more classic in style, and keep them stored or covered to prolong their life.

***NOTE*** They are a little pricier than some of the other cushions (that you can change out annually), so pick a style that you can live with for 5 or so years.   I chose a two-toned blue, striped pattern for mine to keep it somewhat classic.

 

 

 


#2 – BAR STOOL CUSHIONS

As you can tell from the pictures, I chose the same pattern/style for our bar stool cushions also.   We have several different outdoor living spaces in our backyard, and I wanted some of the cushions to match exactly.  Since our bar stools have smaller seats than our dining chairs, these cushions were also the perfect size.

SIDEBAR – We have had these metal swivel bar stools and matching chaise lounge chairs for about 8 years.  They DO need a little spray paint update (happening soon), and some WD-40 from time to time, but they still work great. Plus, we love that they swivel.   I know that outdoor styles have changed a lot since we bought them, but if it aint’ broke…… ;).

 

 

 


#3 – DINING CHAIR CUSHIONS

Changing out your dining chair cushions is another affordable way to update your outdoor space.  There are a ton of different options out there now, not only in color, but in size, shape, and seat height.  Of course, the nicer (or thicker) the cushion is, the more expensive it will be.  Also, the ones sold as a seat and back (all-in-one) style tend to get pricey as well!!

For mine, I chose a navy global print to coordinate with the other blue chaise lounge and bar stool cushions that I am using.  This helps the look from getting too matchy-matchy, and also helps add a little personality to the mix.    ***TIP*** I chose a 2″ thick (versus a 3″ or 4″ thick) cushion to keep the cost down.

***TIP *** Since these cushions were sold in a pack of 4, I can also use the 2 leftover cushions as seat “backs” in the 2 captain chairs!  I just tied them onto the top of the chair, and now I have 2 for the price of one – even better!!  See last 2 pictures.

 

 

 

 

 


#4 – THROW PILLOWS

Adding throw pillows is obviously the most affordable way to update your outdoor patio, and to add some color.  I know people are using indoor pillows now on their outdoor furniture, but just be careful with this.  I have done it also, but they CAN bleed onto your outdoor cushions (& may be difficult to get out).

***TIP*** If using indoor pillows, or even indoor/outdoor pillows – then try to use them under covered patio areas and keep them out of water/rain.  Also, try to store all pillows (even outdoor pillows) in outdoor storage containers to prolong life.

 

 

 

 

 

 


#5 – PLANTS/PLANTERS

Adding plants to your outdoor living space is a must – in updating your patio.  Now, I know they can tend to get pricey, but just be smart with your planting…….plans – LOL!

***TIP***  To save money, buy smaller plants and plant them yourself (instead of buying bigger plants already potted).  Also, stick to 2 or 3 colors when picking flowers to make the biggest impact.   And place them in multiple groups (like 2 or more planters) to add more color depth.

I chose hot pink shades (Dipladenia) and also coral shades (New Guinea Impatiens) for mine this year.  Now, I’m not saying that I won’t throw a lavender or yellow into this mix.  But these 2 “pops” of color will set up my foundation (or grounding) for all of my cushion colors and other plants.

#6 – ACCENT TABLES

Use smaller accent tables to breathe new life into your outdoor patio decor.  Sometimes just a “fresh” color, or freshly painted color helps to lighten darker patio seating areas.  Of course, you can always paint an older table yourself to give it a fresh update.

***TIP***  Use smaller ottomans or larger ottomans to double as extra end tables and coffee tables.  Our tan sectional came with a small dining table and included 2 ottomans.  We can use the 2 ottomans as foot rests, extra seating, and as end tables to the sectional if needed.

Our blue sectional came with a larger, round ottoman that also doubles as a coffee table.  We can use it too as a foot rest, extra seating, or as an accent table.

 

 

 

 

 


#7 – RUGS

OK – so outdoor rugs have DEFINITELY gotten expensive, but not the ones that I found.  They are the newer type of outdoor rugs that are made out of a woven material (polypropylene) from World Market.  I have to say I was leary at first to try this type of rug out (they look like a shinier plastic material) – but we love them!  And they are reversible – even better.

So, I have one of the rugs under the dining table with the navy showing, and the other one under the covered patio with the ivory color showing.    Then, I have the ivory (blue) side (different pattern) showing under our blue sectional area.  And the price – $39.99 for one 6′ x 9’……  uh – YES please!!  I’ll take 3 thank you!!

 

 

 


#8 – ADD LIGHTS

If you are looking to add a little ambiance to your backyard space, then hanging some string lights is the way to go!!  I don’t know exactly how to describe the mood they create, but maybe close to being at a rustic barn wedding type of atmosphere.   They just give off a relaxed, casual, take off your shoes and have some fun feeling!  Love it!!

I added these lights to our garage and outdoor kitchen area for my oldest daughter’s homecoming party.   I set up a long serving table under the lights, and then decorated the table and wall with their school colors.

They really loved the lights – and that says a lot – since teenagers really don’t like ANYTHING their parents do – LOL!!

 

 

 


#9 – UMBRELLAS

Remember how I suggested doing a little improvement at a time…..well the umbrella “update” will have to wait until next year for me also.  At some point,  replacing our fallen fence – became a LITTLE more important than finishing all of my patio updates this year!  And I gotta leave some things out –  to do for next summer – right?

Plus, this umbrella works just fine, and the color still works with all of the other shades of blue.   ***TIP*** Don’t forget to store your umbrella indoors when you’re not using it!  They will fade (like mine), so try to make it last for several years by keeping it covered.

 

 

 

Hope you found some helpful tips and inspirations to get your outdoor patio makeover or backyard update underway!  Have a wonderful summer everyone!

10 Ways to Add Color To Your Entry

So, if you’re ever read any of my posts, you’ll notice that I love color.  Let me try that again…..I actually NEED color.  I have tried to mimic the adorable black and white “farmhouse look”, and have attempted to live with the sophisticated “neutrals” look – but I just can’t do it!! 

Color does personally affect my mood, and changes the way I feel – every. single. day!!  If you are one of those same kind of people, or just really want to try “color” out, then keep reading!  10 Ways to Add Color To Your Entry (Foyer).

Lumbar Pillow (white with blue circles), Yellow Striped Throw Blanket


10 WAYS TO ADD COLOR TO YOUR ENTRY 

Here is the list of 10 items that I recommend for adding some color to your entryway this year.  Don’t be afraid – lol!!  Try out a couple of items first, and see how adding color makes you feel

You can always add more if want to go bold, or you can use lighter colors if you want a softer look.  Just remember, it’s your home so have some fun with it!

Just because we have all been living with neutral gray rooms and neutral beige rooms, doesn’t meant we can’t inject color into these existing color palettes.

***TIP***  You can use these tips to add color to any neutral room or monochromatic room in your house.  They are affordable, will help incorporate “pops of color,” and are easy ways to add color without painting!!  Even Better!

LIST:  

  1.  Throw Pillows
  2.  Throw Blankets
  3.  Benches
  4.  Console Tables
  5.  Flowers/Wreaths
  6.  Baskets
  7.  Wall Decor
  8.  Lamps/Lamp Shades
  9.  Rugs
  10.  Decor Accessories/Accents

10 WAYS TO ADD COLOR TO YOUR ENTRY 

#1 – THROW PILLOWS

Adding throw pillows is the easiest way to incorporate color into your entry.  Toss the pillows onto a bench, tuck them in a basket, display them under a console table, or even use them as a welcome message. 

Stick with 2 to 3 colors for a clean look, or use an assortment of colors (with same depth) for a boho look.

#2 – THROW BLANKETS

Using throw blankets is another easy way to add a splash of color to your foyer.  Drape them onto an entry bench, tuck them into a basket under a console, or display them on a farmhouse ladder. 

Throw blankets are easy to change out from season to season, are budget-friendly, and add a little “warmth” (texture) to your vignette.

#3 – BENCHES

Use an upholstered bench or painted wooden bench to add color to your entryway.  Who doesn’t love a cute bench these days – right?  They are basically now a staple in home decorating because of their versatility and functionality.

Add toss pillows or throw blankets (like already mentioned), put baskets underneath it for storage, or buy a storage bench – that has hidden storage built-in. 

I’m showing 4 ways to use the entry bench –  layering on the color one step at a time.

#4 – CONSOLE TABLES

Paint an existing console table ( my tutorial click here ) a neutral shade to blend with other hues in the same color scheme, or go bold if you want the entry table to be a feature piece. 

I painted my entry table a deep smoky blue color with gray undertones to keep it more neutral, and to add depth/dimension to my color palette.   This helps me to decorate with a monochromatic blue color scheme, while using yellow as my accent color.

***TIP***  Use a white or black console table as “your color” in the entry as well.  These 2 colors will also help with adding contrast to other colors (even though they read as neutrals).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


#5 – FLOWERS/WREATHS

I absolutely LOVE flowers, especially at spring and summer time!!  So, I tend to go a LITTLE overboard – lol!! 

I know in the past the big thing was to go with “fresh flowers”- but they tend to get expensive- quickly.  Silk flowers have come a long way in the last 5 years or so.  It’s very difficult now to tell the difference between fresh and artificial flowers.

Add large or long stems for big impact, and use smaller blooms or bushels for soft accents.  Put flowers in vases, hang them in mason jars on the wall, or use wreaths. 

You can also tuck them in baskets or let the petals casually fall on a tray…..let your creativity go wild.  If it makes you happy – then it’s ok!!

#6 – BASKETS

Adding baskets is a great way to incorporate color, pattern, texture and function!!  Win- win!!  Use neutral shades to ground your color palette, or punch up your color a notch by using colored baskets.

***TIP***  Even a straw-colored “neutral” basket actually reads like a color.  It will pick up tans, yellows, wheat-color, or even gold tones.  And the farmhouse baskets….they have gray undertones.  So they can read as blues, grays, charcoal, or greige.

***TIP*** If you have some older baskets at home that you no longer care for, or they have gotten a little worn out – paint them!!  I painted the basket under the blue console table (below) white to hide some of the areas that had faded.

#7 – WALL DECOR

Use wall art to add pops of color to your entry, and to add interest.  It’s kind of like the chicken before the egg thing – do you pick your wall decor first, and then find coordinating accents colors.  Or do you find your accent colors first, and then hope to find similar colors in your art piece.

Normally, you would pick your artwork first, and then pull colors out of the piece to work with.  But if you like to use two main colors (like blue and white) with one accent pop of color (yellow), then you can find artwork in either of these colors.

***TIP***  Use a mirror to showcase something on the opposite wall, as your accent color (see 3rd picture below).  The bottom black mirror is at a perfect angle to see my throw pillows on our bench.

The last picture is from our master bedroom.  Click Home Tour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom to see that post.

#8 – LAMPS/LAMP SHADES

I know that lamps and lamp shades are not the first items that come to mind when thinking of adding color to your entry vignette.  But they are one of the easiest ways to add contrast to an existing color palette, or to actually add the “pop” of color to a more neutral color palette.

I personally have a love affair with lamps, so I do go a little cra-zee with them.  I don’t really follow any rules (or trends) too much with lamps/ shades either.  If I like it – I use it 🙂

My favorite lamp bases tend to have antique shapes, and my lamp shades tend to be bold.  Just gotta roll with who you are, and use things that make you smile!!

# 9 – RUGS

Adding rugs (with color) is definitely one of my absolute favorite ways to add personality to an entryway.  Rugs actually set the tone of your home, and give your guests an idea of how your home life runs.   Are you more formal, casual, or playful?

I tend to choose rugs that are a color + white:  1) blue and white, 2) gray and white, 3) seafoam and white are some of mine.  This style of colorful rug choice, helps me to “pop” other accent colors out without too much effort.

This style also allows me to play with the accent hues:  1) bright yellow vs. mustard yellow, 2) dark teal blue vs. sea glass blue, 3) deep coral pink vs. rose pink.

#10 – DECOR ACCESSORIES/ACCENTS

Using decorative accents is of course the most obvious way to add color to your entry.  You can try colorful vases, books, trays, candles/candle sticks,  fill lanterns with colorful items, picture frames, or your favorite accessories (like my pineapple – lol)!!  And yes, I know that it is white – but it “pops” off my blue console table…..so it reads as a color.

***TIP*** Try to use home decor accents that are in one or 2 colors only .  This helps create a more unified or cohesive”look,” and keeps your console table from looking busy.

***TIP*** Don’t forget to incorporate items that represent you and your family.  Remember that your home tells YOUR story, shares YOUR memories, welcomes YOUR guests. 🙂

Here are my favorites:  Lumbar Pillow (white with blue circles), Aloha Pineapple Pillow, Yellow Striped Throw Blanket

Shoot me some pictures of your new colorful entry – I’d love to see how it turns out!

Happy Spring and Summer Everyone!!

Love & Colorful Hugs 🙂

Trend Alert:  41 Reasons Buffalo Check is Still Going Strong

source: thetarnishedjewelblog.com

Fun Facts: #1) My post 10 Ways To Add Buffalo Check is one of my MOST popular posts.  #2) One of the pins (from that post) remains in my TOP 10 pins of all times.  Yep – just sayin’……

So, why is buffalo check so popular?

Like I mentioned in my post (mentioned above), buffalo check is a timeless pattern.  It’s been around forever, and can mix well with any other pattern.  In fact, it actually grounds other color palettes  – causing it to act as a neutral!!  Awesome!!  Plus, you can buy buffalo plaid basically in any color you want- which makes incorporating it into your previous home decor even that much easier.  Yes, please!!

And the biggest reason it’s so popular……wait for it….. buffalo check is just so stinkin’ cute!!  For some CRAZY reason – those big checks just make you smile – right?  Or maybe you prefer the smaller checks, like gingham.  Either way, the check pattern is bold enough to stand alone.  And it makes the perfect backdrop to make any other accent color “pop!!”  Are you ready to try it out yet?

If you’re still on the fence, here are 41 reasons buffalo check is still going strong!

28 BEST BARN DOORS:  GET THE LOOK

I wanted to start off this post with a couple of pictures from the barn doors that we have in our home.   Our doors were custom made due to the irregular sizes of our openings and due to availability (or lack of, I should say). 

There was zero availability during Hurricane Harvey ….(when we flooded).  And since we added the craftman style trim around all of our doorways and windows – we created irregular-sized openings  So, needless to say – custom it was!!

  • This is the hardware that I used for both of my barn doors (single – 6.6 ft. and double -10 ft. doors), and I  love them.  The guys who installed the double office doors had to cut down the rails (for custom sizing), but they work great.  The handles are very nice and heavy, and look stunning.  I used brushed nickel/stainless for mine, but the black are beautiful also.

 

  • TIP – make sure to read carefully for sliding door hardware for single or double doors and door sizes (EX:  one 48″w SINGLE door VERSUS two DOUBLE 24″w doors = 48″W).  It gets very confusing, so just triple check yourself!!

33 Best Outdoor Seating Options: ALL Under $500

Happy Spring Everyone!!  In honor of celebrating the first day of spring this week (woohoo!!), I thought it would be the perfect time to share all of the best outdoor patio furniture finds with you.  And by finds – I mean the best deals to get the most bang from your buck.  Like you, we are always on a tight budget around here at the Prothro house.  With 2 kids and their activities, planning for college, saving for cars, etc….,  budget is pretty much #1 on our list – at all times!!  And outdoor decorating falls under that same, small budget as well!!  So, who is ready to see the 33 Best Outdoor Seating Options:  ALL Under $500?

33 BEST OUTDOOR SEATING OPTIONS:  ALL UNDER $500

source: thetarnishedjewelblog.com

FIRST THINGS FIRST:  Always remember to measure, measure again, and then measure again (LOL) your patio or outdoor living area for furniture placement.  It’s the worst feeling ever to fall in love with your adorable outdoor sectional, only to find out that it’s too big for your space.  Trust me – been there, done that!!

SECOND:  Tape off your patio furniture measurements so you can visualize the space.  For one this will help you plan your fabulous outdoor oasis, and two, it will triple check your measurements (haha).

THIRD:  Make sure to think about the function of your outdoor space, not only the looks.  For example:  What are you planning to do with your space, or how do you want your outdoor living space to feel?  Do you want:  a relaxing retreat with 4 chairs cozied up to an outdoor fireplace or firepit, a backyard oasis with outdoor entertaining in mind for your family and friends, or a comfy patio with a small corner outdoor sectional?

Recreate This Room – Cozy Cottage

We all know there are just some pins that everyone LOVES, and get pinned over and over again!!  Every time you scroll through pinterest, it keeps popping up, and you STILL click on it every time.  No matter what you do, you can’t control yourself!!  You know the ones that I am talking about!!  They are Magical & Dreamy- just like the picture below!  There is just something special about this room that makes you want to curl up on the couch and get cozy – am I right??     So, what’s a girl supposed to do??  Well, if you’re a blogger like me……you create a new blog series – called Recreate This Room where I show you how to get this look.  Let’s go!!  Who’s ready to create this room:  cozy cottage??!!


RECREATE THIS ROOM:  COZY COTTAGE

source: instagram.com

THE STYLE:

First things first:

What makes this room sooooo special?  Well, from the sheepskin rug on the sectional to the white-washed brick fireplace with cascading greenery….it just screams “welcome.”  It is soft, yet sophisticated.  It is understated, yet balanced.  It is white and fresh, but still warm.  It is gorgeous!!

Secondly:

The room is not “staged.”  What does that mean??  The bean bag is somewhat crumpled, the sheepskin rug is gently hanging off the chaise sofa, and none of the decorating is symmetrical.  You “love” the room…..well because it looks “lived in.”  And if you love it that much (because we know it is a top pinned image), how can you duplicate this look?
