I created this outdoor patio area for my husband I after we had just got married. Everything you see in the pictures cost around $100.00 using Dollar Tree, Ikea and Big Lots! I was so happy with the way it came out.

I had a plug in chandelier that I had purchased for my wedding that I knew I wanted to use centered above the table, and that's how my ideas got started. I then hung Lill Curtains ($2.50 from Ikea) Around the entire patio and it really changed the look instantly.

    Really nice, tip on lighting was the first time I ever heard usuing tea candels, cheek to cheek so to speak. I noticed that the top was somewhat open so don't imagine anyone eating out there during a rainstorm. Do you have any plans to improve the top
