My Weekend Mini-Makeover

>> 7.20.2009

This weekend, I decided to beautify my back porch a little bit with a mini-makeover. I had already purchased the table and chairs ($125) and I spent a grand total of $5 for the rest of the supplies. Here's what I did:

I found a cheapo $5 blue rug at a garage sale and I added that to the ground for some texture. Next, I gathered some pretty things from around my house (vase with flowers, candle, yellow silverware, and IKEA wine glasses and dishes). Finally, I added some outdoor lighting to the fence (sorry, those pictures didn't turn out). The chairs are really comfortable, but I think I might look out for some pillows to add color.
Yum! Cupcakes and wine on a summer's evening!
I also kept myself busy this weekend gathering documents to give to my mortgage lender. We had a long meeting on Friday... I'll post about it later!
How was your weekend?

Wow what a beautiful blog - I love the look and feel! I can only aspire to get my blog look sorted out, for now I don't know how to though - just the basics! x

I love your little patio set! I am currently trying to find a reasonably priced patio set for my backyard. Maybe all the trouble was finally worth it?
