making the deck your favorite place to be

7/24/2017

I partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond for decor and furniture included in the blog post.
All opinions are mine.


The back deck was one of my favorite parts of the house when we saw the house for the first time. It is a huge space where you can entertain and not feel squished, and on warm summer nights after the kids go to bed it is my favorite place to be. I should have snapped a before photo for y'all (I am so bad at never doing that) but my goal this summer was to give it a little makeover.


The first step was to upgrade my furniture. We were working with a not so charming glass dining table and chairs and I knew I wanted to move to a more casual seating arrangement. I snagged this Safaieh 4-Piece set for a steal of a deal from Bed Bath and Beyond. Im not going to lie, I was a little worried about doing this project alone, especially putting together the furniture. But I was able to get the box to the back yard all by my self and when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was packaged to make it as easy as possible. The screws were all individually packaged and attached to the pieces they went to. It took me less than an hour alone with Lilly and Piper to get this put together and I even stopped to take coffee breaks and enjoy each piece when I finished it. I also snagged this metal and glass vase that is perfect for displaying the flowers from my wild flower garden. I paired it with some potted plants and it adds a fun homey touch to the space.


I knew Bed Bath and Beyond was great for basic housewares but I was so impressed with also their furniture and home decor selection. It made refreshing our outdoor area not only fun but easy. Just like everything else in my life the deck will probably always be a work in progress. But for now, I love how it looks and I am so excited to host some girlfriends for some coffee or wine while the kids play in the backyard.
