Summer Patio Reveal
So far summer has been just the right balance of busy and being lazy. Which is always my goal. I have had my first couple of Etsy sales which has been really exciting! If you need any birthday banners, photo props or decorations I would love for you to check it out.
We have had a rainy start to our summer but we have still been really enjoying our patio! It has taken a few years but the final results are even better than I was expecting. It is one of my favorite places to hang out.
And just like any good reveal here is a before. Pretty bad, right?
And here is my new favorite spot to sit.
The table we made is holding up great and getting a lot of use.
I LOVE our new fire table. I like a nice warm fire just like the next girl but I can't stand smelling like smoke so this is the perfect compromise. We have fire at the turn of a dial and no mess. We found this one at Lowes. The blue glass looks amazing! We ordered that online.
I love having a separate dining and seating area, I am so glad we could make it work.
We hope to plant a vegetable garden this year but so far I have only managed to start the herbs. Cilantro for salsa, mint for mojitos and basil for pizzas, YUM!
This spot is a favorite for summer book reading.
I hope you are enjoying your summer so far, as usual I can't believe it is almost the 4th of July.
Have a wonderful day!!
