Wicker Furniture

So we had a breakthrough moment this weekend. Maddux is standing :) It is awesome!!! He has been letting go for a while and standing a little bit. but now... its a real little person that just stands up in the middle of the living room and applauds himself for being so big. Its adorable... He will just stand there and clap like "look at me mom!!!!"
I cant believe he is already getting so big.... Time goes by so fast.

Speaking of which. I plan on next year spending a lot more time outside. he will be big enough to run around and such and play on his little tiny tot swing set and such. So I decided I should start thinking about our outdoor patio.

well I saw on

That she took wicker furniture painted it a fun color and added accents and it was absolutely adorable. So i was on a hunt for some wicker furniture to try her idea :)  So i finally found some. well i didnt but a woman i knew found it and sent me the link on CraigsList. Thanks Patti!!!! :)
So I know its the end of the season... and its not finished yet but its adorable so I thought I would share. Before looking at it though I plan on getting some little side tables and painting them bright orange to tie them all together and some other decorative accents and of course some flowers next spring. but here are the photos now. I plan on adding hopefully some outdoor lanterns and such :)

Heres the before photo without the loveseat because i didnt feel like dragging it out of the garage to take the photo. and Yes i took this at night but I was getting ready to paint it when I realized I should take a 'Before" photo!


 And here is after I painted and put new cushion covers on :)




I like the teal and orange :) Cant wait to put it all out next spring!!!!!!!!!
But now its going in storage for winter!!!!!!
