Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: A blanket of Texas sky and treetops, a colorful vintage bowl to aid in my bottle cap collection and deep, inviting lounge seating are some of my favorite things about our outdoor space. I also greatly enjoy my frequent self-indulging sense of accomplishment in my ability to get the most out of my student's income and achieve a colorful and comfortable outdoor living room.
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: Biggest decorating tip: try to avoid breaking the bank for a relaxing, ideally stylish, patio space that could be easily achieved with a little thriftin' and scavenger-ness. We found our miniature pallets free at a neighborhood shop and the large deep cushions are baby crib mattresses, chosen for their second-hand affordability on Craigslist and liquid-proof lining, covered in thrifted outdoor fabric and shower curtains. Add a vintage trunk, bought at a garage sale, to keep all pretty things safe while not in use and you have a pretty, easy, pop-up lounge area when friends come a calling and Texas nights are cool.
Thanks, Lacee, and good luck!
