My soon to be beautiful patio

Posted on: May 10, 2008

Now that I’m Domestic Goddess numbero 1, my home and my house has become extremely important to me. Hubby has given me the green light on a few home renovating, beautifying project, and my first project is my patio. I’ve got to admit that I’ve been searching around for the perfect patio furniture and accessories, and after reading through Melissa Michaels from The Inspired Room series on outdoor rooms, I’ve become truly inspired. Right now, I’m in the process of re-purposing some old wicker and wrought iron furniture, and after seeing them stripped from years of paint, I’ve decided to go for a rustic look. Did a little research online and found a great article on how to antique furniture for a cool aged look, I’ve gone to work.

But I also like juxtaposing looks. Something old with something new you know? So I decided to go to my favorite online store and buy a great set of patio cushions. With the white wicker and rusty looking wrought iron, i’ve decided to go with a great line of red and terracotta fabrics.
