Patio Planning


Ian and I have been in a bit of a DIY frenzy with our back patio since the weather is getting WARM! I've been scouring the internet for inspiration for months seeking out pretty ideas for our small little outdoor living area.


I know I want some PLANTS! Plants for sure. And some place to sit, but we probably have to use lawn chairs because we need something that will fold up. Plus some little pillows for outside.


Lights would be nice. Like little white lights so if we're out there at night we can play cards or something. I would like a hanging fern too but I'm not sure where I would hang it since we just have the little space out back of our apartment.



I'll be sharing before & after pics in the coming days once all the little finishing touches are on the space! We're excited to start having little cookouts back there with our friends!

These are all cute ideas. I am in the middle of redoing my patio and expanding it.

“Lights would be nice. Like little white lights so if we're out there at night we can play cards or something.” - That's right, Elaine! Lighting is the main component of a beautiful patio! It's like how lighting works in any picture; the right amount of dark and brightness automatically enhanced the background.
