Happy Saturday, everyone! 
So what have YOU been up to today?
Well, since Mother’s Day is right around the corner,
AND we have company company coming in next week
AND my hubby has been out of town all week…
I decided it was time for me to have a little fun today
& do something I’ve been wanting to do forever-
sprucing up our deck & patio!  Yay!

Just check out these before pictures, & you’ll understand why it had to be done! Winking smile

Yep…it was that bad!!!  So I headed to Kmart to gather some supplies
for my deck/patio makeover.  Buuuut there was a catch! 
I’m a girl on a budget.  I only wanted to spend around $100.
{You’ll have to check out my shopping story to see how well I did!}

Now here is the BIG reveal!!!  I am so loving it!  I might just sleep out here tonight!


I found this cute bird feeder at Kmart! Before I hung it up I snapped a few pictures!

Don’t you love my cute little table I found at Kmart?
I changed it up a bit using the same stencil & paint
I had used for my master bedroom curtains a few weeks ago.
{I’ll share the table tutorial next week so stay tuned for that.}

It’s amazing what a little spray paint can do!  My benches look brand new!

I LOVE candles, and I really LOVE this candle that
I found at Kmart because it keeps the mosquitoes away!  Oh yah! Winking smile

a picnic table

I made a matching tablecloth for our picnic table using the same stencil & a drop cloth.
Don’t you love the solar lantern I found at Kmart?  Can’t wait to see it tonight!

Now if the hubby would just get home to see it!
Maybe he’ll be here in time to see the lantern light up! Winking smile
