This area is out back and connected to our dining room, which makes it the perfect spot for entertaining on these fun summer evenings. (Especially now that stink bug season appears to be over!) I also love sitting out here at night with the hubs after the kids are in bed, playing Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride....watching the lightning bugs and listening to the birds! First item on the "to do" list for this post is....replace the ugly outdoor thermometer. I have been searching but unfortunately mostly what I'm finding are digital ones.
A closer look at our comfy cozy area, along with some notes for the to do list...
We got this furniture set at a yard sale for $40 (score!) but it sadly still needs a nice table and some pillows to spice it up a little. I sometimes come out here with my coffee (iced of course) and Bible for devotions in the morning and it is so peaceful....except for the squirrels and birds fighting over who gets to eat from the feeders.
Now the view turning around and facing the house (keep in mind those lights are just a reflection)...
Pretty plain. I'm hoping to find some sort of fun artwork, or maybe shelves to go against that boring wall. I've thought about adding some curtains but not sure if I want to go that route...sometimes the rain comes in so I have to be a little careful with what I leave out here. I do love our kid's picnic table and it comes in so handy when it's more than the 4 of us here for dinner.
Hope you enjoyed my favorite outdoor spot! It still needs some love (oooh, brainstorm....how about a rug!), but we are still enjoying it just the way it is!
PS.....Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for my first ever giveaway!!!
