I love outdoor living, hanging out on the deck with a mojito or a pomegranate cocktail and just kicking back.

Our deck off the main floor is small with no access to the yard below. I love my house but I have been craving a comfortable outdoor room with easy access. My sister has a fantastic outdoor living space, right off her kitchen and I LOVE it! She also has a pool, which I would also lovefrench linen cushion covers, but it’;s just not that practical in the PNW. At least that’;s what I keep telling myself.

We have always had our iron patio table (that was a wedding gift) and umbrella on the deck and even though I love that table, we rarely really used it. Which meant we then rarely used our outdoor deck space at all. You can see a small glimpse in this DIY Table Top Firebowl Tutorial.

I have been eyeing patio conversation sets for a couple of years and was really wanting one of those sectionals. They can be so expensive! And, we’;d have to store it. I wanted to be practical if I bought something. I also wanted a dark gray so it would match our light gray house paint (Mindful Gray &; Gauntlet Gray by Sherwin Williams).I found this one at Target online and it was under $600 for the whole set! That is a great price and fit my small patio decorating ideas on a budget personality to a tee.

Prices reflect what I paid at the time.

I didn’;t even hesitate to order it since it also had free shipping! I didn’;t tell my husband about it until it arrived because I knew he’;d wrinkle his nose at the idea. But I knew once it was here, he would LOVE it! And he does.

I had planned on mixing in shades of blue for the pillows, but when I saw those red pillows, my mind was changed, so I grabbed them! The color red…; we have had a long affair with red! I’;m sure you’;ve seen my red door whenever I share my front porch. (See my Spring Porch Here) I also already had 2 red Adirondack chairs that I wasn’;t sure if I’;d use.

I didn’;t end up using them for the deck, but I added 2 more for a bonfire section in the back yard. Those resin chairs can be found at any home improvement store for about $17. If you want to make your own, here are some free plans to make your own Adirondack Chairs.

After creating small patio decorating ideas with budget items and things I already had on hand, I have created the most comfortable space that is lush, colorful and just plain enjoyable! I still need to add my mason jar solar lights and my DIY blue egg fountain and it will be pretty much perfect!

We have used our patio deck more in 2 weeks than we have the past 2 years!

I also decided to add 3 evergreen arborvitaes to give it a cozier and more private feel. The urns I found at Lowes were SO inexpensive! Under $12! The other large pots were from Better Homes and Gardens for under $20!

We grow mint every year for Mojitos and it grows fast! Don’;t plant it in the ground, unless you want it to take over.

These cute geraniums are perfect in this galvanized tray and pots, the only problem is my kitty, the one in the photo likes to eat the blooms. Then she throws them up all over the house.

As you can see, the red ended up matching our old BBQ.

Now I can’;t wait to get rid of that orangey stain colored wood! We are set to replace the deck and will stain the wood gray or we’;ll use a gray composite material along with white rails.

I’;m leaning towards something that is very weather friendly since it’;s pretty wet here.

I hope I’;ve inspired you for a few Small Patio Decorating Ideas that you can use! When decorating your deck, shop your home first. You may be surprised by what you can use to decorate!

I love finding beautiful ways to wrap gifts, especially when it comes to giving gifts to my kids. My twin girls are super “girly” and really appreciate the beauty of wrapping paper, ribbon, etc. And frankly, I love an excuse to make something pretty :) But this year I wanted to think of a fun and unique way to present them with some Easter candy and I love what I came up with.

In her book, “Be Your Own Decorator,” Susanna Salk emboldens her readers to find inspiration in the masterfully decorated rooms of top designers featured in her book. Her design philosophy is practical: find what you love about these rooms and repeat it in your own home. But is it easy? We challenged Susanna Salk to recreate the essence of four rooms from her book using pieces from Ballard Designs.
