Our {Americana Themed} Outdoor Patio Decorating Updates

Spring is here and undoubtedly you are either already outside as much as possible or you're getting ready to be! We are definitely enjoying the spring weather and our outdoor patio is officially spruced up! I'm so excited and can't wait to show you my decorating updates!

Last year we decided that the Walmart-purchased sectional on our deck was just too limiting for the space. I got it really cheap and the cushions had been replaced once already - you couldn't wash them since you couldn't take them off so they were really dirty, too! I found another patio set from Target on sale for $400 {free shipping to my house} which included the sofa, two rocking chairs and the coffee table. But...

Before: Outdoor Patio :: OrganizingMadeFun.com

The sofa cushions were turquoise and not removable - I love turquoise but not out there! It was such a good deal that I didn't care. It doesn't go at all with the back of the house - my Americana-themed patio! As you can see, our house is painted a bright blue and the back doors are all red and white trimmed. 

After: Updated Patio :: OrganizingMadeFun.com

That's OK, I got some fabulous fabric from OnlineFabricStore.com and my amazing mom {oh to be the seamstress she is} whipped up these new covers in navy. They are Sunbrella fabric in Navy along with several outdoor fabric accent red pillows. The deck looks totally updated and I LOVE that everything finally goes together! Even our old, outdoor sectional was brown so everything looks so cohesive and lovely now!

I've also enjoyed having the rest of the patio filled with my succulents and pretty patio plants. Are you a succulent lover? I just love them!

Navy and Red Outdoor Buffet :: OrganizingMadeFun.com

Our outdoor, rolling buffet is perfect for holding all our entertainment pieces and all that stuff that's necessary when having people over. I'll share more of that in a post next week!

In the evening, our patio comes alive! It's so pretty!

  1. Your patio is so gorgeous!! I'd love to have a house with that much room to work with someday. That is, if I can get over my fear of insects....Hmm....
    Anyway, I love this! Great post! :D

    1. We don't have many insects here in Southern California, so that's not a problem for us! Becky B.

  2. Becky, this is so beautiful, how do you ever get anyone to come indoors? Love it!

    1. I know! It's so wonderful out there! We love it! Becky B.
