Hello Spring!6:53 PM
My most recent project has been my patio. It was such an ugly eyesore! I have a gate that leads to the parking lot outside there are several stepping stones. It was so ugly! It was covered in these awful pebbles that I would slide on and there were weeds galore! So I've been working on making it pretty, of course! (pictures coming in a separate post once I'm 100% finished).
My first quest was to find the perfect patio set - the right combination of price and quality. I searched and sought after sales, but could not decide. Finally I settled on this 6 piece set that I found at Walmart. The price is amazing! All of this for $98! Every time I went it was sold out so I figured it wasn't meant to be. However, today I finally snagged one for myself. The downside is it only comes in red. My expectations weren't very high considering the costs. I must admit it wasn't fun putting the legs on the table either! Took me forever and really wish I had a second set of hands. Finally the finished product is all put together and I must say that I'm impressed! I thought it was going to look crazy cheap, but it's totally adorable! It doesn't take up a lot of space, but seats 4 people comfortably.
I also picked up a bag of mulch thinking it would be enough for outside my gate area. I was so close! I only need about half of a bag to get the job done. I picked the bag up from Walmart as well. They also have some great deals going on in their flower section. I got a ton of flower sets for $5 each. So if you are looking to spruce up your patio or deck, I'd highly consider checking them out!
