The patio is looking a lot better these days! I can not express how happy it makes me, with the exception of the wrought iron door. I'm still on the hunt for a new one, and it may take some time before I decide on exactly what I want out here. With that being said, I wanted to share a few photos of the finished space. 

Heres a quick before, yes I hope you don't have nightmares after seeing this. 

 The after.

This space feels completely different. Kael and I love coming out here in the morning to sip coffee and enjoy the sounds of Jurassic Park in our backyard. I kid you not there's so many birds, lizards, wasps and other shit flying around. Other than that we love hanging back here! We also look forward to Fall so we can enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the afternoons/evenings. It's pretty hot out here in the desert at this time of year. 

So heres the break down of everything we did out here:

Repainted the floor white with Sherwin-Williams Porch and Floor Enamel Satin.
Painted the ceiling black using Sherwin-Williams Exterior SuperPaint Satin Latex Paint.
We used Faux Boxwood  panels to cover the stucco.
I already owned the coffee table, mirror, bar cart and chandelier. We added the medallion, painted it black.  
We bought the patio furniture and rug in early Spring from Target .
The outdoor pillows I found online at Stein Mart.

Once I decide on a new door for this space it should all come together nicely and I won't ever have to redo this space again. 

We are now focusing on the front yard. It was looking hideous, which totally wasn't our fault and there's a long story behind it. I'll share more on that later. 

Happy Friday!
