A collection of all my outdoor sitting areas

I love to change my mind on seating areas and arrangements outdoors. Here's a collection of the changes that have made our yard down right homey and inviting at nearly every little turn.
My funky little pallet sofa that I use every single day is under a covered porch. It's comfy, original and a great place for a long lazy read. more at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/08/pallet-wood-outdoor-sofa-reveal.html
And just for fun? Here's a new outfit on said sofa. :) I love to change this thing out every once in awhile. more at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/09/change-my-mind-bistro-table.html
The willow loveseat was before I created the pallet sofa. I love the fact that it's so lightweight so you can move it around anytime you wish. Great for photoshoots! :) more at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/06/rusty-funky-dr
For the curious, here's how I made the padded seat for the willow sofa. tutorial at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/06/rusty-funky-dreams-for-patio.html
I created a sawhorse / pallet coffee table for in front of the willow loveseat. It was very easy to dismantle and move to the yard below.
Ahhh, here it is! This is how the table was made. tutorial at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/06/rusty-funky-dreams-for-patio.html
Here's a fun little spot by the pool. The old farm sign sets the stage well. more at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2010/07/i-gitter-upped-pool.html
This little area is by my front door. It's just under an overhang so the spot was small. But who's to say you can't jam a cute chair anywhere you wish?
Here's the front. It's like a little hideaway. :)
These chairs are certainly nothing fancy, but the view certainly is. I love moving the seats where ever we desire. This is a fab spot to use our little propane firepit as well.
And last but not least, the willow loveseat got moved beside the garden shed this year. more at: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2012/07/15-super-creative-outdoor-sitting-areas.html

    I think that you did a fantastic job! I wish that I was half as creative! We made a firepit out of a old tractor wheel, and surrounded it with curved stone. The one thing that is bothering me is that it is so stark! thanks for your ideas!
