Metamorphosis Monday - Bedroom Patio Redo


Hello  there, and welcome to Metamorphosis Monday!!



A special thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this fun event.

At the end of Spring this year, this is what my patio view outside of my bedroom was looking like.......yeah, not so pretty!!  With the majority of my plants dying from the cold weather, I was getting really antsy to start sprucing up that patio and buying new plants. 
I just love plants and flowers, and one major drawback of the winter time for me is not being able to have them out. 

Here is another view of what I see when I look out my bedroom patio door.  This was also at the end of spring this past year. 

It was in deed time to start sprucing everything up for the summer!! 

I had purchased this little vanity stool at a thrift store a couple of years ago.  It had been sitting in my garage waiting for a new look as well as a new home.  So, I thought my naked patio would be a great place for it to live.  But, it would require some TLC to get it ready for it's new home.
This poor little plant holder had also seen better days, and it was needing some attention as well!!
 As I was gathering up my accessories for my patio, I remembered this little cross that had been under my guest bed for the last couple of years.  I thought it would be perfect to hang out there.   I thought it also needed a new makeover. 
 I then went and purchased some outdoor fabric for a couple of dollars, to cover this old patio cushion that had also been living in my garage.  Do you see my freshly painted stool?  It is not gold anymore.............
Since the cushion was to big, and was a standard size cushion for patio furniture I simply just measured & cut off the excess piece. 
 I then whipped up a slipcover for the cushion, and placed it on.....
 And, here is what my patio looks like today........
 I think my view outside my bedroom looks so, sooooooooo much better now................


 Here is that cute little plant holder painted green, it looks so much better, and does not blend into the gravel any more. 
 I just love this little turtle planter, isn't it just to precious??? 

 I added a little votive holder to light at night.  I just love having candles lit outside, it makes for such a cozy feeling at night. 
 See that little cross I painted under the awning on the wall, if you are looking out from inside you can see it much better.  I would love to replace this old, tired awning with new material one of these days.......




Thanks for letting me share my patio makeover with you, I enjoyed our little visit!  Have a great week, and hope to see you back soon. 

Please stop by and visit with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see her amazing fall arrangement she has placed on her front door, and to see all sorts of other wonderful transformations from the other participants.

Due to lack of activity on your blog, I am going to start my own blog insude the comment section of your blog called "Hunting and Fishing with Jason"

If you were to pick up the pace I am sure you have some kind of Christmas project you are working on that you could post.
