Patio-Style-Challenge-Collage Ipiccy


Hello friends!  As many of you may know, I have been working behind the scene for the Home Depot’s Patio Style Challenge. The project was competed in late March, and I have been DYING to share the details with you.

Well, today is the day.  My post on my Patio Style Challenge is up today on The Home Depot’s blog The Apron. Working with the team at The Home Depot was a dream come true.  A local news crew even came out to film my space.  You can see my 15 minutes of fame here.  Pinch me!! Here are some of the highlights from my space.

Exciting New Project!!

Hey lovelies!!  Happy Friday!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my sneak peek into a project I am working on.  This project actually involves a bunch of small projects rolled into one!

Home Depot Style Challenge 2015

Well, now I can finally reveal what this big project is for . . . I am beyond thrilled to announce that I am going to be a Style Challenge Blogger for the Home Depot in the 2015 Patio Style Challenge! If you have never heard of the Patio Style Challenge, it is where the Home Depot asks designers and design bloggers to style a yard, patio, porch, etc., using one of their 2015 patio sets as the centerpiece.  It involves a ton of creativity and DIY!

If you want to follow along behind the scenes, make sure to follow me on Instagram or the Patio Style Challenge board on Pinterest.  I will be sure to share my patio’s progress.  Of course the Big Reveal of the BIG PROJECT will be featured on Home Depot’s blog The Apron.  I have a lot of fun projects, big and small to share!

I am so lucky it is truly spring where I live compared to other bloggers who are shoveling snow back east.  In the meantime, you can probably find me covered in dirt, paint and sweat hauling things home from the Home Depot.

Stay tuned for more on this exciting project!



Copy Cat Garden Stool

Sooooo, I was wandering through the Home Depot the other day and I stumbled upon this while looking at flowers in the garden section.

home depo garden stool 2 I have seen this garden stool with interlinking circles at various decor sites online.  This version from Home Depot is only $59.98.

There are MUCH more expensive versions of this stool.

For $475.00, this stool from Plantation Design could be yours . . .

The Home Depot version only comes in an Ivory, so I would probably paint it.  Maybe some fun, bright color?  Also, the Home Depot version is made of cast resin, not ceramic, but seriously, for the price you could buy 8.

I have a secret crush on garden stools and have several in my home.  I think they are so versatile and can fit into every design aesthetic from modern to cottage, and can be used indoors or out.

I think these garden stools from Home Depot definitely give you the look for less!

Have you ever decorated using garden stools?  What is your favorite space to tuck one away??
