We Answer Wednesday - Outdoor Updates

“Spring is almost here! How can I re-vamp my outdoor décor without replacing everything I already own?”

Spring IS actually here – after a long winter, I think we’re all looking forward to enjoying our outdoor living spaces to their fullest.
There are many accessories and products available to create your outdoor oasis.. most may seem obvious, but changing up your colour palette, or the addition of just a few pieces will be a game changer!

 Easy outdoor curtain diy tutorial made from Lowes' canvas drop cloths and grommets! We could also add corner seating like this, where the hot tub will someday(hopefully) go. then move it out to the extra patio pad when that happens...

Outdoor Rugs are a fabulous addition to any outdoor space whether it be your front porch sitting area, or as an area rug around your table, the addition of an outdoor rug brings colour, pattern and texture to your space! The added pop of interest will instantly refresh your exterior.

 I love everything about this pin…the wicker furniture, lantern lighting, spring colors, and beautiful rug!

Pillows are a common upgrade when trying to refresh your home. BUT, there are many colours, patterns, and textures to choose from, so in order to make a big impact, choose something different! We love mixing and matching colours and patterns, so try that! The carefully selected mixture of the two will give your backyard that designer feel!

Side Tables are more fun than ever! There are so many great options, garden stools are still a super hot trend right now. They are available in so many colours, designs, textures and patterns! Adding a garden stool as a side table is a welcome addition to the back or front yard! With their compact size, this is a fabulous option for a balcony or a front porch with limited space. There are lots of different styles of side tables, the great thing about patio furniture is that it comes in SO many colours.
Planters/Plants.. Greenery is always a welcome addition to any area. Having plants and flowers around is a mood booster for most, not to mention its just pretty to look at. Pairing colourful plants in a beautiful planter in various sizes is a interesting way to make your backyard cozier.

 Outdoor lighted tables how to make. Also has a lot of free plans for building chairs, swings, rockers, etc....

If you’re worried about plants dying.. try using fake plants in real planters. Fake plants have come a long way and there are many that you cant even tell aren’t real! Adding those in a planter or pot is a great alternative for the busy family, or someone who’s lacking in the “green thumb” department.
Chairs come in so many colours, shapes and sizes! Chose what you love. The options are endless. Adding a few bright colored Adirondack chairs with a fun pillow is a great spring/summer refresh. Depending on your budget, there are

great lounge chairs, outdoor sofas and love seats that are a fun choice for backyard BBQs and get-togethers.

Accessories tie a space together both inside and outside. But adding accessories outdoor is pretty different than inside. Here are a few accessory suggestions..
