Hello Lovelies! It’s been a bit of a slow process and now this project has turned out to be
sort of at a standstill. 😦 Since we haven’t had visitors or thrown a bbq this summer, my husband isn’t in any rush to put the canopy up (its such a pain in the you know what, and last year he pulled his back putting it up). 😦 We had his parents help take it down, but I don’t blame him for not wanting to have to deal with it if we aren’t using it. Needless to say I hope to get my vision for this project finalized eventually but money is always tight, so the major things like furniture and cushions will be bought in bits when on sale and such. I still have lots of missing pieces and (being the Gemini that I am) I’ll probably keep changing my mind on them until I get it right, but here is what I’ve gotten so far.
I bought this one last summer at Pier 1 when they had the Outdoor Furniture Sale (which I believe is still going on), so this summer a bought another piece here to go with it but I’m waiting to pick it up at my local store. And yes my puppy’s tail wanted to get in on the picture….haha
I love the vibrancy of Pier 1 but it can be too much $ on a budget like ours, luckily I have a wonderful husband who had gotten me a gift card there for Christmas (knowing how much I love the place). So I waited until some of these items were on sale and bought most of these lanterns and the storage bin with that gift card 🙂 the tea cups and rest of the lanterns were bought there last summer. Though the blue candle holders were from Target but I’m still unsure about using them for this project.
I will keep you all posted on my journey with this since the summer is nearly over and hope to have something final by next summer!!
Do you have any outdoor projects you’d like to share or that have inspired you to try??
