Outdoor Living Space Updates For Summer

Summer is almost here so it’s time to freshen up your outdoor living space. With Memorial Day kicking off our summer entertaining season, we though it might be prudent to talk about easy and cost effective updates. Let’s tackle the outdoor living space first!


Threshold Ordway Patio Set

Threshold Ordway Wicker Patio Set $179.40 (40% Off)

When I saw this set was on sale I knew I had to show it to you guys. It’s prefect for a small space or easily doubled for a larger space. I have sat in this set at my local Target and it’s pretty comfortable and sturdy for the price. If you’ve got a small space, order now before they run out!

Love the look of Teak but can’t afford it? That’s where this set comes in! Made of durable Eucalyptus wood it’s a cost effective alternative!

St. Martin Dining Collection

The same great look as the lounge set with room for 6 dinner guests.

These are unbelievable deals! Patio furnishings are often so expensive that they are prohibitive but I can wholeheartedly recommend these┬ásets because I’ve seen them in person and sat on them. If you’ve already got a set or are looking to fill one of these lovely options in with some color, look no further! This summer I’m loving both the brights trend and the classic nautical look. First, we’ll cover the brights.
