Remember how I said Ian was re-doing our patio for my birthday? Well, here are a few snapshots of the progress!
We shopped around for patio furniture and went with a classic wrought iron table and chairs (from Target!). Then, we added Pottery Barn pillows in classic navy and white stripes, a mason jar candle holder, and fresh flowers.
We live minutes from the beach, so Ian's surfboards need to be accessible, but until now they were strewn across the patio. After a few hours (O.K. really half a Sunday) at Home Depot, we came home with a surfboard rack. I can't believe how well it turned out!
I adore the old fashioned lights I keep seeing at restaurants. Ian took a hint and got some for our patio. At night it's like our own little cafe and makes me smile every time I look out there.
The lavender is the only thing that's survived since we first planted our garden. I pretty much kill everything, but Ian has a green thumb and is going to plant some summer veggies soon. We're thinking tomatoes and arugula!
