We have been working on finding pieces for our home that we really like. It's taken some time but we finally pulled the trigger on two things this week!
First, our patio set. We wanted something that would really hold up over time and that seated 8. We ended up with this that seats 6. The table is large enough that chairs can be pulled up to it though. We found it at Home Depot.
And we love this bar modular set from Pottery Barn! We plan to put it on our porch and it'll be perfect to relieve some congestion from things in our kitchen cabinets. Eventually we may add shelving or something else above it but we'll see.
A big thing my sister in law told us to do before we moved in was to LIVE in your house to see how you use it before making too many investments. We are so glad we took her advice because our priorities have been different since living there.
We are always out back so our patio furniture/outdoor living spaces have been priority. Next year, we are going to rip out our concrete patio that currently exists and replace it with a larger stone or brick one that will have a second seating area in front of an outdoor brick fireplace that we build. We also are going to figure out what the heck to do to make our backyard have more grass. Kevin has done a great job of ripping out a ton of ucky brush that had never been touched so now we just need to either cut down some of the trees or do something different. We'll see.
Stay tuned for more house updates in the future. We have some other big purchases that are going to happen this summer!
