Hopefully the weather is finally starting to warm up in your neck of the woods.
We are warming up a bit here in Kentucky, but soaking wet! I cannot believe all the spring storms we have had this year.
Well, rain or shine, it’s Spring! It’s time to start pretty-ing up your outdoor spaces.
Need some inspiration? Well, here it is!
I am so excited to share with you a great Outdoor Space Makeover today!
Provided by the fabulous Rhoda, from Southern Hospitality.
I met Rhoda two years ago at Blissdom. She is my angel. (You’ll have to read my post at Rhoda’s today to find out why.)
She is the most caring and considerate blogger ever! She is always thinking of others more than herself. I love that about her.
She was my mom’s favorite blog, and I know why. She is super talented, super creative, and oooozing with southern graciousness. I am so excited to share some of her talent with you today.
Rhoda turned her deck from “drab to fab” last year, and you have to see it to believe it!
Rhoda had a deck, I’m sure, like many of yours. It was not an extremely large space, but it was enough of a space to spruce up and make more inviting.
Here is the before picture of her deck…
This wasn’t a space that beckoned Rhoda to come outside, relax, and sip on sweet tea.
She found that great umbrella at a yard sale, and it got her juices flowing to create a more beautiful outdoor space.
Look at it now!
Wow! Isn’t it amazing?! It’s hard to believe it is the same place!
I would want to sit out on this deck every night.
One of the best additions to the deck, was the DIY shutters that Rhoda made.
Yep. She made them. She is truly amazing!
You can find her tutorial of how to make them, HERE.
Rhoda did purchase her wicker furniture (at a great price), but the rest of her accessories are mostly from garage sales or from around her home. I love that!
She proves my theory that it doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful!
She got a great deal on this gorgeous rug too. I love the way it defines the space. The colors are perfect.
The little table between the two chairs got a fresh coat of spray paint to make it look like brand new.
Rhoda also tried her hand at sewing and did a great job on these pillows. Don’t you love those colors?!
Let’s take one more look at this beautiful outdoor space.
