As summer winds to a close and we pick the last of the warm-weather veggies from the garden, I wanted to take a look back to how our patio shaped up after all the work to get it installed. We pushed hard through the spring to lay the pavers, built some garden beds, and planted grass seed to fill in the gaps. Then, the most important step: accessorize!!

Folks have asked where some of our favorite decor came from so we thought we’d post some pics and sources.

The table is our salvaged masterpiece from Smith + Hawken shelving and and IKEA table base. If you like the look but don’t want to DIY, here are some similar options at West Elm or CB2.

Black Enamel fire pit, similar to this one. Ace Hardware

Citronella candle in galvanized pot, a gift from our friend Heather, you can see her tutorial here.

Green acrylic patio chairs, Crate & Barrel.

Turquoise chair cushions, IKEA

Dansk enamel pitcher, Vintage. Find one similar here.

Striped cocktails glasses, IKEA

Solar table lamp, IKEA.

Fruit bowl, CB2

Candle and ceramic tray, IKEA

Blown glass vase, Cargo Portland

Although this Seattle summer wasn’t the best, we had a chance to have several wonderful patio dinners and afternoons of lemonade, surrounded by these bright colorful accessories that we love.

    Well, I guess my idea of giving you a firepit for a gift is not a good one!!!
