Does your patio rest in the doldrums? Is it a place to store the garden hose or have you found a quiet corner to call your own? Consider the patio another space in your home and make it a destination.
Over the past couple of years, home improvement centers have begun offering lots of home products traditionally thought of as ‘inside items’ to be used outdoors including table lamps. These products have been designed specifically for outdoor use and are weather resistant.
Don’t let taking the inside out stop with furniture though. Exterior walls could certainly be used for art work or accessories to complement your patio ‘room’. What you place on these walls will need to be somewhat weather resistant based on exposure to moisture. It should not be precious.
Today we offer up one solution meant for summer. It is stylish and sweet and adds just the right amount of color to our patio space. The best part of this project is that it is incredibly inexpensive. The trays all came from a thrift store and the entire project was less than $25.
savour… quiet corners
Get the rest after the jump…
