About a month ago, we prepped the deck before hosting Scott's birthday cookout. We used cafe and umbrella lights from Target to make it feel more festive.
We bought the picnic table at Costco, but it's also available on Amazon(Lifetime 6-Feet W-Frame Folding Picnic Table). Luckily we only paid $140- go Costco! Those super cute turquoise folding chairs are from Target.
The party went really well that night, but the husband decided he wanted even more lighting out there. He installed some tiny recessed lights around the windows.
Yesterday we stumbled upon a good sale at Lowe's and picked up three of these outdoor sconces for $20/each. This is what we had before, which are about half the size of the new ones:
And here are the new lights:
They really make the house glow!
So, that's what we have been up to! We're also picking out exterior paint, getting the roof replaced and having our trees trimmed in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait to see how it all comes together.
What have you been working on?
