PATIO MAKEOVER! As a renter sometimes you are limited to what you can do to make your place feel like your own. Sometimes all you need to do is just ask your landlord. That's what we did with our patio makeover. He was fine with it and trusted our judgement. Heck, we added value to the place! We wanted to do it in an affordable way, so we used pavers and gravel. We are so pleased with the results! for more details you can visit my blog www.jennifersmentionables.wordpress.com
It's not hard to create an oasis on a front or back porch -
1. round up a few comfy chairs or a lounge, maybe a swing.
2. add a table to hold a glass.
3. pop in a few pillows and a splash of color in an accessory or two.
...and you have your OWN summertime retreat to enjoy!
Once upon a time, I lived in my dream house. And that dream house had a wide front porch that just said 'Summertime'... It was the perfect place to hang a swing, where I could sit and work or just relax. Add in a few patriotic decor details and a refreshing summer beverage, and it was truly my haven, my retreat. I enjoyed that porch in every season, but especially in summer!
