When my husband and I bought our house there were so many things that made us fall in love with it but one aspect in particular that I’ve been dreaming about since we moved in is the patio just off our master bedroom. I’ve been dreaming about morning coffees and evening conversations sitting on the patio. I’ve been dreaming of comfy furniture and pretty flowers to decorate with. Sadly up until this point we just hadn’t done anything with it, we could never justify the cost of the furniture. I’m happy to tell you that we have remedied that!
More and more we are realizing that our decor style is “natural” lots of white, lots of plants and lots of reclaimed wood. For this space what we really wanted was a place to relax at the end of the day. This was the easiest thing to do and it is unbelievably comfortable! We got 4-4×4 pallets and stacked them two high and two long. Then while I was shopping for groceries at our Super Store I noticed that all the outdoor and patio stuff was on sale so I searched for the cushions. These are actually lounger cushions and are the perfect size to keep some pallet exposed on either side to act as a side table for drinks etc. The best part is that they were all 50% off. We did put an egg carton mattress topper underneath to add some extra comfort and now this pallet couch is more comfortable than my bed! Next year this will be full of flowers as well. Unfortunately it’s been raining since we did this and the patio is not protected from the rain so we haven’t been able to enjoy it. Today is looking like it will finally be sunny and warm so you’ll find me laying on my new couch after work.
Slowly but surely we are checking things off of our “house to-do list,” but we’ve still got a long way to go.
