From Drab to Fab-A Patio Makeover

May 14, 2013

You too can change your patio from drab to 

fab with some of these eye-catching colors 

and decorating tips.

Samantha, Afton, Maisy and I recently  took 

a weekend trip to visit Josh, Rebecca and 

Molly in their new home.

Josh, Rebecca and Molly just moved from 

Louisiana to Oklahoma and are in the process

of decorating their home and patio.  They 

are a young couple just starting out in the

world.  Brings back so memories of how it 

feels to be so young, anticipating all 

the joys and wonders of adulthood, marriage, 

careers and a very young baby.

I love this table transformation, this

young couple did this with spray paint.

Rebecca is a natural homemaker and has 

always had an eye for what is trendy.  She 

has incorporated a vibrant color palette   

colorful pots, blooming plants and 

succulents into her decor.

By painting her patio table and chairs, 

mixing floral throw pillows with a stripe 

patio swing she has completely transformed

 her outdoor living space from mundane to 


Hasn't this become such a wonderful and 

welcoming retreat?
