30 by 30 – No. 14 Finally Decorate My Patio

Posted by: Maggie

I’m doing 29 up big! I plan to accomplish a number of things, better define the kind of person that I am and want to be, and have a fun year doing it! Follow along as I check things off my 30 by 30 list!

I’m really excited about this one! I’ve been talking about decorating the patio of our various apartments for the last 6 years, ask Josh! Every time the weather heats up I talk about wanting to sit on the patio with my coffee or a cocktail and read a book. I just never could decided on the decor that I wanted and could afford. But I’ve finally done it, and on the cheap!

I’m super proud of my little space. Although, once I have money for it, I’d like to hang curtains and get a larger rug, but for now I think it’s just lovely!

1. Kid’s Plastic Adirondack Chair by Adams Mfg. from Lowes $7; 2. Throw Pillow from Target $5 on sale; 3. Fish patio lights, gift from my mom (I think she got them at Cost Plus); 4. Sage Plant from Trader Joe’s $2.50 in green metal pot from Target’s $1 section; 5. Basil Plants from Trader Joe’s $5.99 in metal ice bucket my mom loaned/gave me;  6. Rosemary Plant from Trader Joe’s $2.50 in yellow metal pot from Target’s $1 section; 7. Crate from Michael’s, I bought it a couple years ago I don’t remember how much it was; 8. Red Area Rug from Ikea, $5; 9. Marius Stool from Ikea, $6; 10. Throw Pillows from Target, $5 each; 11. Green Plastic Adirondack Chairs from Target, $17.

Grand Total $80! Awesome!

What do you think? Do you have an outdoor projects you’re working on this summer?

    I LOVE it!! Your patio is adorable and I’d love to sit out there with an evening glass of wine or a morning cup of coffee. Great job.

  2. The pics look awesome, I also love the last picture with the numbers…..words are escaping me at the moment, but I would love to learn to do that. Seems like a great place to bask in the sun like a lizard!

  3. Thanks! I’m loving it! It feels like such a big accomplishment after it sat empty for so long!
