Outdoor deck in Birmingham, AL

This was a plain deck at my old house in AL that wasn't very exciting until I decided to do a little makeover on it with outdoor wicker, new cushions, rug, a yardsale umbrella and it turned into a cozy retreat that was very fun to hang out in. I used lots of yardsale finds too. I don't live in this house anymore, but I'm getting ready to move in a new house this fall and all of this wicker will go on my new screened porch! See all the details on my blog:
Vase and chairs
All weather wicker
Cushions and pillows are put away in a deck box to keep them out of the weather.
Cozy spot to chill out
Yardsale umbrella kept the sun off
DIY shuttters from fence parts.
I made the square pillows from fabric found at Old Time Pottery.

    What a beautiful space. I totally agree, adding an outdoor rug gives those outdoor spaces such a 'roomy' feel.

    What an inviting little spot! I love the pop of green with those shutters!
