My Patio Needs A Makeover!

Hello and Happy Friday to all!

I've decided my patio needs a makeover! A super fun, super colorful makeover! You know, get it ready for Spring/Summer 2013. Here are some pics of my patio now (note: I am not proud of it!) along with my notes on what I wish to change:

That's cute little one photo-bombing the pics is Chloe, our mini doxie!


I live in a townhome community. We live right by the pool area so we are always going out to the pool and having friends over for BBQ's and pool time. This patio needs to be more fun and coordinated.

My current inspirations:

Please feel free to comment and let me know any suggestions/modifications you would add.
Note: We are renters so we would like to make this a fabulous space with out making any permanent changes.

  3. I want a patio makeover, too! Something about spring just get me thinking outdoorsy projects. I love your ideas - especially the lanterns and the fabrics! I am sure it will look great!

  4. Let me just say.. SO jealous you have a patio and a pool! Secondly I don't think your current patio looks awful just needs color. I wish you well on the patio make over and can't wait to see the after pictures!

  5. Since you are renters, your best bet is to stick to fabrics, big pieces like plants, and lots of throws.
