Happy Friday, friends!
While it’s SNOWING (again?!) currently in Chicago, I have received many requests from those of you who are wanting to spruce up your outdoor space and are looking for some reccos in that department. (Since we won’t be going on vacation for a while, why not create all the vacation vibes at home!?) Well, you have come to the right place!
We actually got quite a few items for our patio last year that I never got around to shooting, because it hasn’t fully been “finished” yet–but, I figured with so many of you asking, I might as well link to what I do have! (Luckily I just realized almost all of it is still available this year! Huzzah!)
Even more good news: Almost all my patio stuff is on sale! I’m linking it below, along with some other budget-friendly picks, and at the bottom, you’ll find a list of the best places to start searching for deals on everything you need to spruce up your outdoor space. Now…if only the weather would turn here in the midwest. ????
CB2 Acapulco Chairs: $259
We have two of these and LOVE them. They look like wicker, but they aren’t–they’re PVC, which means they’re super durable, waterproof, and wipe clean easily. The egg shape is also really comfortable–perfect for lounging!
CB2 Ixtapa Loveseat: $319
I got this loveseat to go with the chairs, and like how it’s contrasting in color from the black! Made of the same PVC–we love it!
I got a few of these pillows in the larger size in navy stripe––the perfect addition to any patio!
Garment washed pillows:
I got a couple of these in this “dark sunstone” color–I love how it pairs with the navy pillows!
Outdoor tribal rug: $149
IN LOVE with this runner (comes in other sizes as well!) it’s so affordable and makes the space so happy! It’s really durable!
Side table: $111
This side table is perfect for a small space, and can be used outdoors in the summer, and indoors in the winter!
Striped runner: $31
We’ve had this runner for FOUR years now (crazy!) and it has lasted forever. I cannot believe the price, either!
Tall Planter: $89
I originally bought this planter to plant herbs in last year, but it turns out, it actually doubles as a really great beer trough for parties. ????
Other Patio Picks:
Target folding patio set: $119
The cutest of budget-friendly picks–this little set is perfect for a small balcony, OR, for a social distancing sidewalk happy hour in your driveway!
Bar height patio set: $400
If you’re looking for a tall outdoor dining set, this one is so cute, and looks super comfortable, too!
Paris Bistro Chair set: $195
I just added these to my cart for our back deck! We have a little black metal table that is perfectly good, so I bought the black and white color to go with it! WALMART for the win––who would’ve thought!?
Wicker 3 piece dining set: $380
I am in LOVE with this set from Target. A perfect little set for two!
Papasan chair and ottoman set: $210
If you’re looking for some comfy but chic loungers, look no further than this set from Target!
Target 7 piece rattan dining set: $850
I think this dining set is SO chic, and for 6 chairs and a table, you really can’t beat the price!
Cement “basket” planter: $29
I love the look of these planters––look like woven baskets, but insanely durable, because they’re cement!
CB2 Loveseat: $629
A super chic, modern loveseat that looks perfect for comfily lounging in the sun!
One goal of ours this year is to hang string lights in the front and the back patios. There are TONS of string lights out there, so you’ll want to measure your space and see what length you need, but Walmart has a ton of various options at really good prices!
Outdoor bar cart: $107
I love this little rattan bar cart to hold your beverage essentials––it would be a cute plant stand too! (How cute with little potted herbs!?)
Three piece pot set: $15
Pots and planters are a really easy way to elevate the look of your outdoor space. Go for a mix of small and big planters for a more interesting effect!
Wallscape planters: $15+
I love the idea of using wall space to hang planters! These are indoor/outdoor and again, I feel like would be great for herbs too!?
Large cityscape planter: $200
Larger planters are usually so expensive, but they’re an awesome way to make a big impact! I love the modern design of this one from CB2, and it’s on sale!
Four piece sofa set: $419
Sofa sets are usually SO expensive, and this one is on major markdown for only $419! It looks really comfortable and I love the woven look!
West Elm Indoor/Outdoor Rug: $159
I’m buying this rug for our back deck–the 8 x 10 size is only $159!! If you’re looking for an affordable big rug for your indoor space, this would work there as well!
West Elm Large Plant Stand: $97
Another awesome planter that makes a big impact, both indoor or outdoor!
Four-piece rattan seating set: $699
Another cushy and chic seating set that won’t break the bank!
West Elm Outdoor Rug: $68+
Similar to mine above, but different! This one comes in two colors and many sizes, and is such a great price point!
Folding pool chair set: $126
Just need a couple chairs that fold up when you don’t need ’em? These chic pool loungers will do the trick! Plus, they’re lightweight and portable, too!
