As I’m sure many who have bought a house know, everything is a work in progress. Our primary focus originally was the inside of the house. Since I’m pregnant, most of our indoor updating is on hold. And, of course we’ll be nursing again, so our updating will remain on hold for the forseeable future. We don’t want to put much up on the walls, just to take it all down again when we finish the painting of the doors, trim, and hallway. Then, there’s the issue of the floor needing refinished, so….for now I’ll dream up some designs for our patio.
Right now, our patio is a solid slab of raised concrete. Though it’s a great place to go sit or even draw on with chalk, it isn’t anywhere near its full potential. Hun and I have talked about extending the patio slightly with a wooden deck. We’re thinking a few wood steps with planters and a nice railing on the two sides. Unfortunately, I didn’t find a picture that really shows what our idea is. Nonetheless, I did find the Home and Patio Decor Center. Some of their prices might be a bit extreme, but I did find some nice furniture for our yet to be completed and designed patio.
Knowing me and how frugal Hun and I both can be, we’ll be looking at some of our other options, but these are just a few of my ideas. We like to keep our tones pretty neutral, with pops of bolder colors thrown in. And, since we avoid plastic, if we can, I’ll have to search for just the right dishware. I certainly like pops and hints of color amongst the dark. I’m partial to a nice bold red, a bright orange, or some yellow.
But, the selection at the Home and Patio Decor Center is pretty nice, they have rugs, tons of furniture options, other decor, lighting, and even bedding. Just click here to see for yourself. Plus, they offer free shipping on all orders, so why not browse for something new to add to your home.
