Yeah I wasn't so much kidding.
Except I took it to a whole other level. It all started with these ridiculously comfortable rocking chairs at Sam's. Ever since wandering around the joint with Eileen and her 40 oz. icee and randomly coming across these exceptionally comfortable sit-upons I knew they had to be mine!
So I made a special trip with her (and icee, round 2) to pick up these fab guys. We rushed right over to the outdoor section only to find. GRILLS. Just grills grills and more grills. And pool cleaners, and outdoor lights, and coolers, and hoses, and 145 piece dining sets, but NO ROCKERS.
Distraught, I took to the internets, where luckily, I could pretend to be Cath and finally order my rocking chairs!
But as you know, shopping at 11pm can get a little dangerous. Especially when you have a "vision" for your porch. And oh, I've got visions.
So a quick pop over to World Market and I see all of their outdoor stuff is on sale. Ohhh boy.
Now by the time the month is over, our drab, I-started-to-rip-up-the-carpet-but-it-was-hard-and-that's-about-all-I've-done, is going to be a colorful outdoor paradise!
UPDATE: I was able to upload pics! This is the basic layout I sketched up:
And here are pics of the actual items going in:
|A pair of these lovelies|
|With these pillows on them|
|And a little table in between them|
|A coffee table in the middle - juuust realized we don't even have one for the living room yet. Great job Katie...|
|Flanked by floor pillows - we're so boho chic|
|Then this lovely bench|
|With these pillows|
So. Who's coming over?!
