My Favorite Outdoor #LoveItMoment

Thanks for sharing!


I've shared with you many times that my absolute favorite room during warmer weather months in our home is actually outdoors. I adore our screened porch. It has really been HOT here and it isn't even July yet. Thank goodness for the ceiling fans to help the air flow.

It has really been a labor of love to create this “outdoor room.”  Today I'm sharing My Favorite Outdoor #LoveItMoment.

We dine out here most nights. We read, chat, entertain and work on the porch. Yes, you can find me or my hubby out here working on our lap tops or on business calls. There is just something about hearing the sounds of nature that is relaxing.

This is perhaps one of my all-time favorite DIY projects for our home, the outdoor beverage station. Not only is it attractive, but oh so functional! My hubby and I are very much novices when it comes to DIY, but we made it through this project and are still married!

There is just something about creating a piece of furniture like this or simply installing a light fixture on your own that gives you great satisfaction!

Most of my DIY is really simple like rehabbing thrift store finds for the porch: lamp shade, weathered paint finish on frame, monogram art and stenciled server to name a few.

I'd love to get our DIY on again and build a stone fire-pit with some bench seating around it for lounging. This works great for now, but I really think it could be spectacular with a stone fire-pit.
