Patio Sneak Peek!

After days of torrential rain, it is the most gorgeous spring day ever! So I thought I'd give you all a quick peek at how the patio is coming along.  We are alllllmost done. Just waiting on the dining table and the chaise lounge to arrive and then I will share the whole thing.  But we are almost ready for the margarita mayhem that we love so much.

We got this wicker loveseat and the matching chair at Target a few years ago on sale. But they carry the replacement cushions on their website now so we ordered them in blue. I found these great accent pillows - the striped ones are also from Target and the chevron pattern are from Home Depot. All sturdy and made of outdoor water resistant fabric - duh.

The patio has one step up that leads to a little stone path to the gate. We are still waiting for them to come and power wash and stain the fence - which apparently you have to schedule in December - so we have to wait on all the plantings. But I couldn't resist a few colorful planters while we wait. 

Because we live on a hill, they created a retaining wall that also serves as extra - if uncomfortable - seating. New brown mulch hand laid by yours truly! Next year that may be added to the list of outsourced projects.

The landscape designer (who we loved and are happy to recommend if you live in the DC area) picked blue flagstones to coordinate with the house. Yep - you read that right...we coordinated our patio to our siding. Gag. Sorry. 

So that's your Friday sneak peek! More to come soon.....
