under $100: on the patio

this under $100 came highly requested by d*s twitter followers. we’re all tyring to make the most of the rapidly approaching end of summer. in spite of the heat, i am not quite ready to let go of longer days and tank top weather. so if you have a patio or outdoor space, you should definitely make the most of these final days of summer. although i’m sans patio, i’m still trying to get outside as much as possible –  for me that means, trying to squeeze in as many summer bike rides as i can.  -amy a.

Great round-up! It’s tough to find inexpensive-yet-good looking outdoor furniture and decor. Love how you thought out of the box with these picks!

I must comment that the adirondack chair made from recycled pallets is such a clever idea. There are so many pallets that get discarded. I think this appears to be an easy way to construct a chair. Thanks for the post.

Okay… I have truly hit the ‘blogger jackpot’ with this post. I now (thanks to you!!) have so many great ideas – and I am heading out to LOWES within the hour to possibly purchase the retro glider. I LOVE it. I also added the yellow lantern to my Amazon wishlist. And that flyswatter?? Who knew that a flyswatter could be so darn cute???


Ah, I love that brick patio..and those mini rock fire bowls. Someday we won’t have chickens wandering around on our old front porch…and a pool with a sunshade? Now, that would be wonderful in this Va. heat. Ahhhh
