I’ve been working away at fininshing up my Outdoor Space for the #30dayflip challenge, hosted by Jeanette from Snazzy Little Things and Meredith from Arts and Classy, and today is the due day. Lol. Nothing quite like leaving it to the last minute right?
Here is my completed outdoor dining area. The colour scheme was inspired by the purple and lime in the outdoor cushions. When my husband walked out and saw it, his first comment was about how much The Hulk would like it based on my green and purple colour choices. Lol.
While pleasing The Hulk wasn’t my intention, I did set out to try to create a fun space, which would work well during the day as well as into the late evening. But let’s check out a Before pic.
Yikes, right? This was taken before we moved in.
Here is the After. We figured the raised part of the deck was perfect for a dining area.
The lighting was put together to create a warm glow once the sun goes down. With the chandelier and the candles on the gallery wall, there is more than enough light to carry the party into the night.
The place settings are simple and complement the overall scheme.
My favourite part of the space is the gallery wall. I put this together using old frames I no longer needed, and some chevron candle holders. The hanging jar lanterns were purchased at the dollar store.
I had a lot of fun making this space a little more liveable, and thank you so much for checking out my blog. I’ll be participating in the #30dayflip challenge every month until the end of the year.

That’s it for today friends. I’ll be back again on Friday with a new post. Have a great week and I’ll see you then 🙂
