It’s nearing the end of the month … time for “A Good Buy”
Outdoor Dining Chairs
and who doesn’t love a good buy!
I know I’m a week early but with Memorial Day weekend ahead outdoor decorating is in full swing and I didn’t want you to miss out!
Dining Chairs from Target, on sale we paid on sale $93.50 per pair! Regular price $55.00, still a steal!
Designing a space for a relatively small deck area 9′ x 11′ + a separate dining area to seat a minimum of 8 and come in on budget can be a bit of a challenge. This is when making decisions where and how to spend the budget is critical and being able to think outside the box comes into play.
I’ve mixed and matched furnishing and accessories from Target, Crate & Barrel, Ikea, Pottery Barn, Flea market finds + some of the homeowner’s treasures to create this colorful uplifting space.
Why the dining chairs work …
Design, classic x-back
Durable for outdoor use, heavy yet stackable
Versatile, can be used on the deck for additional seating
And so the design plan begins …
First things first …
Take the wish list above
Separate dining area
Separate lounge area
Function of lounge space: entertaining + casual eating area
Seating for 8 in both areas
Shade for daytime use
create a floor plan …
Scale is the key, always
add furnishings …
What to keep and what to replace
To fit the scale of the space and on budget
plan for accessories from the start …
Work within a colorful palette
Don’t forget about the flowers
Add flea market finds + homeowners treasures to the new furnishing for a well-loved + lived in look and feel
To keep in budget we reused the dining table. Unfortunately soon after we installed the furniture a storm came through and the glass top shattered. We’ll be replacing the table with a new one since it’s pretty old and this is not the first time the glass has shattered.
At least the chairs look great!
Have a wonderful weekend, and as always thanks for sharing your week with me ~ Nancy
be happy + be comfortable in your home
