Giving The Patio A Facelift

Finally we have some cooler weather in Orlando
 The perfect time to spruce up the patio


In all honesty, I seldom use the patio in the summer, it is just to hot. So, when the humidity and temps fall to the 70's like last week, it was perfect time to do some outdoor work

How embarrassing is this...


 ...Yep, my patio chairs....Falling apart


   
About every 3 years they totally disintegrate due to the Florida heat, humidity, and sun.

I cut out 6 plywood circles


And used a couple different outdoor fabrics to recover the 6 chairs



Blue is my new favorite color, inside and outside of my house. I now have a blue bedroom, blue living room, blue bathroom and .......Blue patio


 
I potted new flowers.  I was limited on the flower choices since there is not many plants that flower in the winter. 



A new faux flower center piece


And a fresh new pillow for the rocker


 The perfect place to sit and enjoy my afternoon cup of creme brulee coffee.


Happy Creating
Carol

I'm jealous! Everything here is wet, icky and slimy. I am so looking forward to things drying out a bit and that morning cup of joe on my patio.

Charming! As I watch the snow falling again here in Pennsylvania, I wonder why I am not living in Florida????? Seriously though, your patio looks beautiful. Hope you have many wonderful, relaxing times there!

Gorgeous!! Winter in Oregon... my patio is a total wreck of dead leaves and junk "parked" there until it isn't raining and I feel inclined to haul them out to the garden shed. Flowers in Winter - jealous. You are miles ahead of me!
