With Mother’s Day around the corner I thought it would be a great time to treat myself to a patio makeover. As a busy mom of three I think it’s important to take time every once in awhile to focus on myself and sneak in a few minutes of relaxation. One of the best ways I like to relax is with a good book, only problem is I don’t have a quiet and relaxing spot to read in. So a few days ago I set out a budget and went shopping at Kmart to makeover my patio into a relaxing area filled with some of my favorite things.
I am in LOVE with the yellow pillows. And guess what? They were only $10 each! I also made some placemat pillows. Can you tell I love the blue and yellow combo? It’s pretty much taking over my house. The placemats were less than $3 a piece, which were right along with my budget for this makeover.
I picked up two side tables as well. One is to accessorize and hold my drink/book/etc and the other to display flowers on. Since the furniture is black the flowers and pillows add a nice splash of color. I’ve thought about spray painting the tables, but I don’t think I’m brave enough to. I’m afraid I won’t like it so for now the classic black is OK in my book. :)
