Living in Southern California, where you can be outside almost all year round, it is essential to have some sort of outdoor space. We are extremely lucky to have such a somewhat spacious balcony where we can fit a BBQ, chairs & a bench. So when my sister gave us her old BBQ we decided to get the ball rolling so we could really enjoy the space we have. Down below is the space before. The lonely space just had a few thriving tomato plants and some dying flower plants. My husband's thumb is getting close to green, he just hasn't mastered it yet.
One day when we were out wandering for a good place to take some outfit pictures we came across a pallet. It was sturdier that most and the wood wasn't too jagged. We hoisted it into the back seat of the car (We, not including me) and decided to create an outdoor bench with it. If you would like to see the DIY you can do so here.
We shopped around the find the chairs, ottomans, pillows, and accessories but bought almost everything at Target (Ottoman, Chairs, Pillows). Here's the finished product:
Once we were done decorating we simply added good food, great friends, and lots of wine! We had a night we won't soon forget and are planning on having many, many more! Thanks for hanging with us guys! And come again soon!
