Give Your Backyard a Stylish Makeover With Overstock & Safavieh
This post is sponsored by Overstock.
I don't know who needs to hear this, but if you don't get your backyard ready now, you're not going to make it in time for that Memorial Day party. We’ve teamed up with Overstock and Safavieh for a stunning backyard makeover with an area for dining outdoors.
Here’s how to refresh your backyard with Overstock and Safavieh’s outdoor furniture, and make the most out of Overstock’s Memorial Day sale:
Tools and materials
1. Remove dirt and grass
The first step in our backyard transformation was marking off our new space's shape. Then we got to digging and digging and more digging. We removed the first layer of dirt and grass to create a solid dirt base.
2. Add pea pebbles, cardboard, & granite
Once the shape was dug out, we added a layer of pea pebbles, then a layer of cardboard that acted as a weed barrier, and then decomposed granite. This was all to create a clean, level environment for our next step.
3. Pack it down
After packing it down with a plate compactor that we rented for the afternoon, it was time to bring in the pavers.
4. Lay the pavers
These oversized limestone pavers created the perfect modern, high-end outdoor restaurant feeling that we wanted.
After finding the perfect pattern and spacing, we placed them over a bed of paver sand and made sure they were level. We made sure to fill in any gaps with sand to make sure the pavers were secure, sturdy, and didn't wiggle around when you walked on them.
5. Create a weed barrier & add gravel
Then we laid down a weed barrier against the house. And then it was time for gravel. We used a dozen or so bags of black gravel to complement the sleep pavers. This took two days of work, but man, did it turn out good.
Now the fun part: decorating! We headed to Overstock and found the perfect patio dining table from Safavieh's large selection. The patio table, along with a few other finds, was delivered straight to the door, which made it feel like Christmas morning!

Assembling it was super quick, as the instructions were easy to follow. And the best part? No power tools required.

Safavieh's products are stunning and carefully crafted with natural wood. And this teak table was no exception. I mean, look at this quality outdoor table.
Once that was in place, we moved on to unwrapping the stylish outdoor dining chairs to go with it. Yes, you heard me right. Unwrapping. Because these patio dining chairs come fully assembled. We love that.

Now we have the outdoor table and chairs in place, the finishing touch was this gorgeous flower planter where I planted some fresh herbs and my favorite pink hydrangeas for some color.
