One of our most asked about pieces on our deck are our wood framed facing sofas. They are from World Market and ridiculously affordable at just $399 a pop. We got them last year, during one of their outdoor sales and spent just over $500 for both. We love them. I’m actually working on a post right now about how we keep them clean, so look for that this week, too.
I linked to these sofas during one of World Market’s outdoor sales in a Casual Friday post, and received an email the next week from World Market, thanking us and seeing if we’d be interested in partnering on a project in the future. I was thrilled that so many of you snagged a good deal and we’re always up for making over spaces–so why not?
Since our deck is pretty set as far as furnishings go, we asked if we could pay the makeover forward and they were 100% on board. You may remember that we convinced my parents to move right next door to us 2 years ago and it has been such a blessing for us. Charly runs over to see my dad every day and it’s wonderful to see our girls so close to my parents, too. They are always willing to help us haul big things in and out of our home at the drop of a hat–it’s the best. And! If that’s not deserving enough, their deck is still pretty bare since moving in, with the exception of a few lounge chairs they have on their lower level.
This deck is right off their kitchen (that door on the left leads into the kitchen) and it is the perfect spot for an outdoor dining area. I asked them what their outdoor dining wishlist would include and they said:
• Easy seating for grandkids (of course they said this first <3)
• A rug
• Some sort of umbrella to block the sun, but also the berries and leaves the trees drop constantly
• A spot for an herb garden
World Market gave us $1500 for the makeover, which you could easily spend on just a table and chairs anywhere else. But we really wanted to give them a completed space, so we stretched it and were able to check off everything on their list, and then some! Here’s what we came up with:
Tiered Planter Stand | Table Runner | Cantilever Umbrella
Outdoor Rug | Dining Table | Black Hairpin Chair
Barrel Planters | Navy Striped Pillow | Dining Bench
String Lights | Leather and Glass Vase | Tabletop Planter
A few of these items we bought multiple of and hit the $1500 budget right on the mark. We ordered everything and it has already started to arrive! Chris and I are anxious to get it all set up for them and make them a big dinner, al fresco. After pictures to come!
