Craigslist Monday: Getting Ready for Outdoor Living

Better Homes and Garden outdoor space

The sun is shining so brightly today and as I stare out at the brilliant blue sky, my mind is completely on warm weather. This year, I’ve made a promise to myself that I’m going to make my patio as beautiful as the rest of my living spaces… so the theme for today’s craigslist Monday is outdoor living!

Rattan chairs - $100 for the pairMy first find is perfect for building the bones of an outdoor living space. I’ve seen these rattan armchairs new in Pier 1 for over $200 a piece, so to get a pair for $100 is a great deal! You could cover the cushions with an outdoor fabric and place them together with a little metal side table for a perfect place to relax and watch the Spring flowers grow.

This next piece is really meant for the indoors, but it’s so pretty, and I think it would be gorgeous on a covered patio or in a sunroom with the rattan armchairs above.  Can you imagine this armoire filled with pretty pots and dishes, ready for an afternoon snack?  And at $125 the price is pretty too.

Finally, if you’re looking for a good deal on a standard patio set, you can’t really beat this five piece set.  It includes a nice round table, four chairs, and cushions and appears to be in good condition.  It’s a nice rust-proof aluminum too.  All for $100.

Happy Spring dreaming!
