Patio Progress

I have been busy working on fixing up our patio this summer and today I wanted to share some of the progress I have made to it so far.  So first, let me show you a before picture:



A new Hammock on our Patio

Guess What? 
I won a giveaway! I was so excited, My Sweet Savannah was hosting a giveaway for $100 to spend at Stylish Rustic and I won!

I could pick out almost anything I wanted from their online store, and I chose a new hammock for our patio and this cool green camp lantern.


I Painted Our Hot Tub!

I know, Right? It's unheard of, I totally painted our hot tub! 
Well, technically I didn't paint the actual hot tub, but I painted the hot tub surround. 
But still, I've never heard of anyone who has painted their hot tub before, have you? 
But I'm guessing if you own an old hot tub like ours, then you will be wanting to paint yours after seeing this.

Okay so here is our hot tub before, it was looking pretty worn down. 

Painting Rattan & Bamboo Furniture


 I don't know about you, but I love rattan furniture and I have always been drawn to it. 
Well actually, I love Wicker, Rattan, Bamboo, and Sea grass. It all has a hand crafted, tropical look that meshes so well with the rest of my easy going, beachy boho style.

So when I first laid eyes on this rattan mirror from Target, it was Love at first Sight and I knew I had to have it for our mantel.  Then later when I found this matching coffee table at a thrift store I knew it was meant to be. Fate brought us together.

New Camp Decor

 As I've mentioned plenty of times before I love to go camping. My family and I plan several camping trips over the summer months. There is just something so relaxing about being out in nature, surrounded by trees, swimming in the lake, feeling the fresh mountain breezes, sitting by a campfire, star gazing, and crisp cool mornings. Just this past weekend we got together with a bunch of friends and we all went camping by a lake here in Idaho. It was so much fun. We are already planing another camping trip soon.


Beachy sign with Bob Marley lyrics

Hello, I hope you are having a great summer.
We sure are, but it's also been a busy one so you may have noticed that things have slowed down a bit here on the blog, but I did want to pop in real quick and share this sign I had made for our entryway.  You may have seen it already since I had originally shared it over at City Farmhouse a while back, but in case you missed it, I wanted to share it with you again.
And in the meantime, in between my blog post, you can always find me on Instagram and Facebook.
So be sure you are following me there so we can keep connected.
