New Patio Furniture

We have a large patio out back.  In the below picture (which may I add was taken before we moved in and before some of those awful bushes were gone or majorly trimmed), you'll see the patio.

There used to be a pool in the green area to the right of it but Mrs. Smith had it filled in before she put the home on the market.  There had been issues with it and it was more of a therapy pool than a fun pool that we'd want so we were okay with it.  

Anyway, what is left is a big concrete pad, suitable to be next to a pool but we could do without the concrete.  Instead, we will do pavers, slate or brick or something.  We're not sure but this patio will not be around forever.  It will get bigger and have a more planned backyard.  But, for the time being, we (I) wanted some lounge furniture.  We are out there every single night.  

This is the patio today.  So bare!

We settled on this set from Target.  It will be perfect for now and perfect when we redo the patio.  I've had metal Target outdoor furniture before and it was wonderful.  I didn't want to deal with wicker or maintaining teak.  We just needed something simple and classic.  

We like how the couch is a real couch and we can lay down on it.  One of us in the new hammock, one of us on the couch.  I'm liking how our backyard is shaping up!

I'm not the biggest fan of the table but I'm hoping it's better in person than on the computer screen.  If not, I'll cover it with pretty flowers!

Best part is that we got it for 20% off and free shipping for this huge bulky set which could easily be a couple more hundred dollars.  I think we saved about $400 by getting it this weekend.  Or at least that's what I told Kevin.  ;)  xoxox

Now, we just have to wait for it to be delivered which won't be until next week.  Counting down the days!

Oh and I need to get some more throw pillows made.  Ahh that reminds me, I still haven't shown yall my fish pillows.  Stay tuned!


  1. That patio set actually looks really comfortable! Can’t wait to see it once yall set it up!

  2. Exciting! I think you're smart not going with teak. That stuff is HARD to maintain!!
    Now it's time for a cookout!

  3. So cute! We bought a desk and a wine fridge with Memorial Day sales this weekend - really pumped for both!

  5. My parents got a set just like this four years ago and it still looks brand new! It's held up much better than their wicker or wood pieces. Can't wait to see your fish pillows!

  6. I got my patio set from Target too! Has held up really well, its the faux wicker.

  7. Looks beautiful! We just ordered some patio furniture a few weekends ago - so exciting!

  8. You have a spacious patio, Annie. And it would be such a shame if you just left it bare. Anyway, the patio set you chose looks wonderful! They add a sense of comfort to your patio, and you now have a place to spend some quality 'me' time in the morning. Thanks for sharing!
