A Farmhouse Patio

A Farmhouse Patio

Well, hello there! Shall I give you the “I’m too busy to blog” sh-peal, or do we have an understanding at this point?!

I’m excited to be back in the ol’ saddle here. For today. I don’t have time to saddle up everyday. Which I guess we covered in my opening sentence.


I’m SUPER excited to share this post with y’all! We’ve been working so hard on our backyard! And for the first time EVER, we completed everything (almost) before the end of May! You know how you start the Summer with a list of things you want to update, and then you spend all Summer working and saving all your money….only to get the projects done on September 29th, just in time for the first frost. So, I’m THRILLED that we were able to get our list accomplished so early so we have all Summer to enjoy it!

Our list wasn’t too long….

  • We needed a new patio table. Desperately.
  • A new umbrella
  • New outdoor rugs
  • A new conversation set (ooo so fancy)
  • Mulch
  • Flowers & Hanging baskets
  • And lots of weed killer.


It started with a trip to Ikea for our new table. Ikea to the rescue! The table is everything I wanted. I purchased the super large square wood table with 2 matching benches. I found a navy blue umbrella at a local store. I got crazy lucky and scored an almost brand new conversation set on a FB garage sale! So, Other than flowers and mulch (which came from our local Nursery – buy local friends! Support your small businesses!) we just needed some rugs! I knew the rugs would complete the space and anchor it together!

I was looking for something dark blue (easy to keep clean!) and would tie in with my new umbrella!

I was over the MOON when I found these rugs from Rug Studio!! Not only are they the PERFECT color and design! But, they had a 6’7″  square which would fit under my new square table so so so nicely! I quickly ordered this one as well as a 4×5 for my seating area. You can see the listing for my rugs here.

My rugs were shipped the same day and I received them 3 days later! My extremely impatient personality was so thankful!

I couldn’t be happier with how they look! The color is perfect! The size it perfect! What a thrill! I highly recommend Rug Studio! They have an enormous selection to choose from!

So glad this space is complete!! Now pour the lemonade and let’s sit down and just enjoy it for the next 3 months!!

Thanks for stopping!!

    what a beautiful arrangement, enjoy, we love our pool patio with the chairs and an eating table. It is always cooler there even thought we live in South Florida. Enjoy, bless you
