For the last 3 summers that we’ve been in our house, I have longed for an outdoor living room. I’m not sure WHY it has taken me this long to make it happen, but I finally have the outdoor living room I’ve been dreaming of! I guess all I needed was a little motivation, and when I received my TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures, it was just what I needed to visualize my perfect space!
Two summers ago I bought two outdoor chairs, at the end of the season, but without a couch they just always seemed awkward and out of place. It’s embarrassing to show you this before picture because it is SO bad!
Here’s Matt’s running stuff, it’s starting to take over the patio stairs.
Malea’s toys scattered all over the place.
Our make-shift living room with scattered chairs and toys.
Obviously I needed some organization on our patio, so I went to a local antique mall and found this metal cabinet.
Someday I’ll make it over to look cute, but for now it does exactly what I need it to do… organize my stuff! Once all Malea’s toys, and my gardening things were organized (post on that coming soon), I got to organizing the living room area of the patio.
I arranged my 2 chairs and my new TIKI Brand Fire Sculpture, but the living room space was still missing something… more seating. I headed to Walmart and found wicker couches for less than $100 so I snagged one up, and bought a few plants to make my living area feel more homey.
When I got home I pulled out some old pots, for the plants, a few side tables I had laying around, and decorated my new outdoor living room. I absolutely love it! Why did it take me 3 years to do this???
Matt and I are out here every night now, enjoying the cool summer nights, sipping on a glass of wine, and having good conversations that we never have when we watch TV in the evenings! The ambiance is awesome with the TIKI burning bright but the best part about sitting out in our new living room is that there aren’t any mosquitoes! The first night we used our new TIKI Fire Sculpture I was watching and waited for the mosquitoes to come and attack. We live close to the river so we usually have a ton of them and get eaten alive! But Matt and I sat out there for 2 hours and neither of us had a single bite! I watched as they tried to come in for the attack but I literally saw them turn around when they got a wiff of the TIKI, it was awesome! Not only does the TIKI fire sculpture create a great ambiance, it also fights off unwanted guests!
If you have been wanting to created an outdoor living room at your house, and just need a little extra motivation, the TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures are available at The Home Depot. Once you’ve created your perfect outdoor space share your photos with the TIKI Brand on Facebook!
It’s summertime, let’s get outside, fire up the grill, light our TIKI sculptures and sit and laugh for hours!
