Back Patio Makeover Reveal

Hello, friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  

Before we left the states, we did a makeover on our back patio that we have been wanting to do for quite a while.  

Since we have lived here, we have been using the covered part of our patio for an eating area, but I have always wanted to put conversation seating in this space.  

I am so thrilled with how it has turned out, and I am so excited to share it with you!  Here are the before and afters…

We completed a diy project during this makeover that I will share with you later this week, but today I wanted to focus on this beautiful conversation seating group from Wayfair.

I am in love with navy and white right now, and I fell in love with this seating group as soon as I saw it.  

Here is the seating group that I chose:

And because I wanted extra seating for large gatherings, I added two more chairs.

 I bought some extra throw pillows with a damask pattern in navy, aqua, and white.

And I chose two navy blue Navajo-style lumbar pillows for both of my single chairs. (Similar HERE.)

The other pillows I used were ones that I already had.

I KNEW that I wanted a sign in my seating area that said “it is well with my soul” because it is one of my favorite songs, and I wanted this area to have a feeling of peacefulness.  

Since I didn’t have a ton of money to spend on a sign, Cy and I made this one!  And I love the way it turned out.  I will show you how we did it in an upcoming post. 

(I was thinking of selling signs like this one in my shop.  Do you think they would sell?)  :)

I brought a sofa table out of my house and put it in the corner so I could use it as a place to serve drinks.  We are thinking of putting a flat screen tv on the blank wall above the chair.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

The large coffee table is great to put up our feet and relax, and it is large enough to even put our food and drinks.  Right now, I just have it decorated with the planter from Lowe’s and some pink flowers.

I also found this garden stool and planter at Lowe’s as well.

The chairs are made of UV resistant outdoor resin wicker that looks just like real wicker until you touch it.  I know that it will last a long time. 

So what do you think?!  

I am soooooo pleased with how it turned out, and our whole family has been enjoying this space.  I have even taken some naps out here, and Cy loves sitting out here every evening and enjoying the nice weather.

I can’t wait to throw a party when we get back home with our girl!  This will be the perfect space for the occasion!

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments. 

Have a blessed day!

  1. Your patio looks GREAT!! I love blue and white too, it just screams outdoor summer fun to me. I’m obsessed with fonts, what font are your using for “heart” in your new logo, which I love by the way.

  2. Love it Traci!! In fact, I sat out there the other night when we went over to let Bentley out! It is gorgeous and very inviting!!

    I want one of the signs!!! I loved it and wondered if you and Cy had made it!!

    Great job!!!

    1. Aw, you guys are so sweet! Thanks for helping with Bentley. :) Can’t wait to have a cookout with you guys when we get back! And we will make you one of those signs! xoxo See you soon!

  3. Traci – this is fabulous!! Everything is beautiful. Love the sign… I have that saying by my desk. And yes, I think it would sell in your shop ;-) the entire space looks so inviting!! I also love your new logo by the way ;-)

  4. It looks great and so inviting. It would certainly be Sunday nap central for us too. Great job and yes, love the signage!

  5. Traci!!! It look A.MAZ.IIIING!!!! Sooo happy for u!!! Perfect! We just might b hangin out in ur backyard when u get home! Ha!

    PS… Can I please buy the “before” table if it needs a new home!?!? 👍🏼

    1. Hey! I think I do still have the before table! :) Maybe I can get it to you later this summer. But it is not an outdoor table. :( I was just using it under the covered part of my porch.

      Hope to see you soon!

    1. We took the french door out and replaced it with windows. I will show you some pictures this week. :) We’ve been wanting to do this for years…….

  6. Your back porch is awesome looking! I noticed ther was a french door from the house leading outside. Did you swap out the french doors for windows? If so hoe do you get into the backyard now?

    1. Yes mam! We sure did! Funny thing is that our home had two sets of french doors going to the outside. But we only ever used the ones from the kitchen. Since we never used the doors on our patio, we just replaced them with windows. Made much more sense for us. :)

  7. Your porch looks amazing! I would love to have a space like that for relaxing and entertaining. And YES, the sign would sell if you made them. That’s my favorite hymn also!

    1. Thank you, Guerrina! I think my navy and white pillows will look great with pops of red too when I want to be patriotic. It will be fun changing up the look with different pillows. :)

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! I wish my back porch was this big! My backyard goals are to get a flagstone patio extended off the porch – big enough for a table and/or gas fire pit.

    Yes! I think your sign would sell. :D

    Blessings to you!

  9. Beautiful. And I do think you sign would sell. Maybe in varying sizes like wall hanging or desktop.

  10. I love it ! Love the colors and the sign YES, it would sell if you made them. That’s my favorite hymn also!

  11. Love the patio! I think the signs wud sell out quick in your shop. Its hard to find sign that reflect our faith.

  12. It is absolutely beautiful! I know that so many good family memories will be made in that space. Yes, I think the signs would sale.

  13. Just gorgeous!! Love everything about it.
    A great place to host a homecoming party for your new daughter!!

  14. Hey Girl, I have been away for a while , your new blog is beautiful. Your porch is lovely.
    So, happy for you guys on the adoption.
