Outdoor Furniture

As I’m sure you can tell with my recent spring lawn care tips, I love spending time outdoors. With the warm weather comes fun spent outdoors entertaining friends and family. Even though we don’t get much time to relax on the farm it’s nice to have a relaxing outdoor area to enjoy even if it’s only for a few moments. I was excited to work with Big Lots to be challenged to create a relaxing outdoor area under $100. It was so easy with their large selection of outdoor furniture, gazebos and accessories.

After about four cans of outdoor spray paint, it was looking pretty sensational.

I knew I wanted to add lots of bright colors to our outdoor space. Big Lots had a huge selection of vibrant colors and unique patterns. I instantly fell in love with their colorful medallion patio furniture accessories. The red floral outdoor throw pillows are stunning and the colors are oh so vibrant. I selected four pillows, one for each of my black iron chairs.

  1. I buy a lot from Big Lots, but haven’t checked out their outdoor living products. I would love some of these plates and the cushions. We really need better patio furniture – right now we have a cheap, plastic set. Then again, since we use it up on our deck, we tried to keep it light-weight. The type you have would actually be good, since it’s not as heavy and bulky as so many sets. I bought a new patio umbrella last summer so now it’s time to add some more color. I need to make a visit to Big Lots soon!
