Our Blue Balcony
June 29, 2012
My 2012 Home Goal #6 is officially checked off the list! We have a new outdoor space all done up in shades of blue and just in time to enjoy summer outdoors. We don’t have any travel plans in July – instead we’ll be spending it at home chilling in this new blue balcony space with a great view of the yard.
It’s a tight space and there was no room for a coffee table when people sit, so instead I added small wicker end tables all around for drinks or reading material.
A navy blue market umbrella provides shade from the afternoon sun. The outdoor pocket pillow covers were a DIY project, I’ll share the easy peasy steps next week plus give fabric sources! The furniture I’ll call “vintage” since I found it at an antique faire five years ago and recently refreshed it with oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
Two weeks ago, it was an unused space . . .
Now it’s cozy and chic, my kind of place!
Can’t wait to curl up here with some iced tea and a few magazines in the afternoons.
Here is the source list and cost breakdown: ORB furniture (free!); cream canvas cushions, $60 each; blue tray: $10; bamboo hurricanes: $7 and $16; 5 x 7 poolside area rug (no longer avail in navy): $102; DIY pillows: $42 (will show the easy peasy how to and fabric sources next week); navy market umbrella, $105; wicker table set, $150.
We’re spending the weekend adding the finishing touches to the Alma Project kitchen remodel, can’t wait to share. Have a great weekend!
