Many of you may know our deep LOVE of Wayfair… You can find anything on there!  Recently, both Ashley and I were challenged to makeover an outdoor space with Wayfair products.  For me, it couldn’t have come at a better time.  Last year, my stepdad built me an amazing fire pit.  Since then, we have moved away from using an outdoor dining table and have really gone very casual in this space.  We also have a fishing pond in the backyard, and I have always wanted rocking chairs to sit in and look out at the pond and yard.  Here is what I came up with!

Let’s talk about these rocking chairs!  Wayfair had a ton of rocking chairs to choose from.  I went with a brand called Hinkle Chair company and picked the maple finish.

The pillow is the best!  You can see it HERE.

I also went with the matching plantation swing also in the maple finish.  This was a hard choice, as they had a ton of porch swings to choose from, all priced so good.

I found coordinating pillows to the ones I used on the chairs.  LOVE them.  The color I went with is called Navy, but it really is more of a cobalt blue.

I found a cute terrarium to fill some space next to one of my columns!

On the opposite column, I chose a couple plant stands to hold my succulents.  Here is the taller plant stand, and here is the shorter plant stand.

And how cute are these garden stools?

Ash and I built the storage coffee table, and we will be sharing plans and a video for it really soon!  I love getting my metal casters on Wayfair as well!

The outdoor fans are the BEST!  My old ones had seen better days, and these were an amazing price and fairly easy to install.

I chose this outdoor rug.  I have already had to pressure wash it (thank you dogs) and it cleaned up perfectly!

I am super pleased with how everything turned out!  The kids love sitting out there now to do homework and read, and I feel like we are using this space so much more.  Although I love a good outdoor dining space, for this chapter in my family’s lives, a bunch of rocking chairs fit the bill.

Hope you love it as much as I do!  Let me know if you have any questions at all!  You can check out more Wayfair makeovers by searching the hashtag #decktheoutdoors on social media!

  1. This is a lovely space! It would be great if you could do a budget-friendly make-over. I will never spend $60 on one throw pillow (especially for a patio) regardless of how much money I have. I think it would be cool to see some budgeting/re-purposing rooms for cheap. Wayfair is fantastic and I have shopped there several times, but there is something about DIY and re-purposing that is more satisfying than buying new and expensive.

    1. Absolutely! The great news is we have an entire site dedicated to DIY budget-friendly makeovers! Maybe this one doesn’t fit the bill, but we have tons of others that do! And, I personally love a mix of DIY and store-bought… To each his own, right? 😉

  2. It looks great! I’ve been debating to go with a more casual look or a picnic table on our patio and I’m kind of loving the casual look!
