Editor’s Note: I am working on some new projects for the blog today, so I thought I’d share this post from Mom Home Guide’s archives. Many of these projects are on my to-do list for this year: I really need to paint the Adirondack chairs and I have to plant my flower tower for this summer!
I am a HUGE fan of Sarah, who runs the Thrifty Decor Chick mom / home decor blog. I want to ready my outdoor spaces for summer entertaining, so I decided to check out her blog, Thrifty Decor Chick. Sarah has an incredible eye for design and is a fantastic DIYer! Plus, her home is beautiful! I just love looking at her Thrifty Decor Chick blog and seeing how she has transformed her home.
Sarah has made a whole bunch of videos for Home Depot, including this one on how to prepare your outdoor spaces, deck or patio for summer entertaining. Her tips are so great that I decided to share them on Mom Home Guide — she is really an inspiration!
Sarah’s got me thinking that I need to improve my home’s outdoor spaces for the summer entertaining. I have two old plastic Adirondack chairs that are really showing their age. They are green, my favorite color, but I was thinking that I could add some pop to them by spray painting them a more vibrant color, perhaps a bright, spring green, or turquoise. These are my chairs:
What do you think? If you have any color suggestions, let me know!
Luckily, my home’s backyard patio is in pretty good shape. I love the colors and the visual interest that my DIY backyard flower tower adds to the space.
I adore the beautiful Smith & Hawkin wrought-iron patio set that my husband and I got on clearance when the garden shop went out of business. It is really wonderful for summer entertaining. The set is exactly what I was looking for and thought was out of my budget!
