a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Backyard update

Do you remember this post (here)?  Those picture!!! ay ay ay  . . . well I stopped dragging my feet and made a commitment to find some fab furniture that would not break the bank!!! I took to scouring the end-of-the-summer outdoor furniture sales and Craigslist . . . but nothing was jumping out at me until I saw a CL post with the most beautiful outdoor sofa and chairs (also the coffee table and side table) all for $1000!!!  

I asked Mr. Hotpants if he liked it which I then promptly followed with "I don't care I'm getting it anyway" . . . The set is in absolute perfect condition; the people bought it a year ago, used it once then moved homes and it has been in storage so it is like-new!!! I found a delivery guy on CL to and went with my mum to see it and actually got the guy down to $900 for the set!  I had the guys load it into the truck before anyone could change their mind! These pics were taken right after it was delivered . . .

The set reminds me so much of my favorite Restoration Hardware "Provence" outdoor collection (here) . . .

I still have to get a few things but I used some things I had around the house and picked up some plants (succulents, a basil plant and  a little palm), a candle and tray . . .

and I just ordered some outdoor throw pillows From Target that I think will go nicely (I want to keep the color scheme neutral since we have so much natural & beautiful greenery in the backyard already)  . . .  

Now all that is left is:

Outdoor rug 
Coffee Table   
(Although I will be keeping my eye out for a different coffee table - I'm  not 
one to be all matchy-matchy!)
Hanging Baskets & Climbing vines
Outdoor lanterns
Outdoor throw blankets in a basket
Outdoor lights  (I may rehanging these in a different pattern than they are now)
Outdoor throw pillows
Outdoor TV  
Paint the Jacuzzi
New jacuzzi top
