It’s finally here — time to reveal my amazing deck makeover with World Market! Remember the gnarly before photos? Well, the days of ugly stain, no furniture, and general sadness are OVER. Feast your eyes on my gorgeous new lounge space (and keep reading for the details of an awesome sale).
Like I said before, the outdoor space adds a lot more space to my tiny bungalow’s overall footprint, making it the perfect place to entertain. Now it’s my personal Mediterranean lounge — uncomplicated furniture with clean lines, patterned outdoor pillows, and a color palette of navy, cobalt, turquoise, and green all grounded in crisp, clean white. I love it.
In terms of the deck itself, I hired an amazing painter to help me refinish it completely (if you’re Seattle-based and need a recommendation, be sure to email me!). He sanded away the old stain and replace some rotten boards. Then, came the crazy part… I showed him a piece of driftwood I found while walking the dogs at the beach and said I wanted my deck to match that! We went over to the local Sherwin-Williams and they were able to match it and create a custom color for the SuperDeck semi-transparent stain. The result is way cleaner than before, but will age beautifully — just like driftwood!
In terms of the layout, I wanted the deck to feel intimate and cozy. I centered the sofa and chair around the oversized coffee table, so that there is always a place to set down your drink. I layered on loads of pillows, plus our DIY-ed ice dye throw for pops of color and visual texture.
And the last step for any outdoorspace — lots of cafe lights! We wrapped them around the trees for a warm, glowy effect at night.
And then my absolute favorite part of this entire space: the outdoor rug! It’s fully reversible, but I am partial to the pattern-heavy cobalt side. Not only will it protect my newly refinished deck, but it makes the space feel more like an outdoor living room. It’s great to walking around barefoot, too.
Also, be sure to head over to House of Hipsters to see Kyla’s patio transformation. I’m seriously loving her layered dining table — think she’ll invite me over for drinks??
