Outdoor Living Sources

Our outdoor living sources are all listed here for you!

I know this will surprise you, but our outdoor makeover took a few months longer than originally planned. BUT it’s literally everything that we dreamed of, and we love it so much! Someday, we might build an outdoor kitchen in our pergola, but that’s TBD. We’re just going to enjoy it for now!

Outdoor Living Sources

General Information/Sources

The exterior walls of the house are now painted White Dove. We had the trim painted Kendall Charcoal. We painted the backdoor Kendall Charcoal but it was made in Base 4 (the store was out of the correct base) – so it’s just slightly darker than the trim.

Jared and I decided to reuse our current backdoor – we gave it a really sharp upgrade with a cool kit!

Outdoor Living Sources: Deck

Outdoor living sources from our deck! Chairs, wall sconce, side table, fire pit, string lights, and firewood rack.

I found this pair of really comfy chairs at Wayfair. For lighting, I replaced an old light fixture with this sconce. I hung the string lights on wires so they’ll be a bit tighter (less swing). We store our firewood beside the deck in three of these steel hexagon firewood log racks.

I love our Breeo firepit even more than I thought I would – it’s great for warmth and ambiance, and it’s so good for cooking when you add the grate and griddle!

Outdoor Living Sources: Pergola

Outdoor Living Sources: Pergola. Steel planter, artificial ryegrass, pellet heater, loveseat, coffee table, and chair.

I wrote a whole post about building our pergola, so check that out if you want to build one. We used this pergola kit. We tried this outdoor rug in the pergola, and I loved the look, but I didn’t love it with the gravel long-term. I’m still sharing the link because it’s really good.

I got a couch (loveseat, really) and chairs from World Market, and put them around a coffee table.

Outdoor Living Sources: Fire Pit

Outdoor Living Sources from our firepit area! Images of slat chair, side table, projector and speakers, concrete fire pit, and movie screen.

These slat chairs are from Walmart. The side table (which came in our bundle with the firepit) serves the double duty of both being a spot to place drinks as well as covering the propane tank for our concrete fire pit (you can also choose to just get the firepit by itself).

We set up our entire backyard to be able to watch movies outdoors! I got this movie screen on sale at Pottery Barn, but you can always make your own with a cheap screen or even a sheet!

Here’s our projector! It’s not expensive at all, and I got two of these speakers to pair with it!

Outdoor Living Sources: Dining

Dining Area - dining table, wicker chairs, and olive trees.

I used an exterior table and wicker chairs we’ve had for a while – thankfully they’re still sold! I got these olive trees for the corner… and they’re actually real – fingers crossed they stay this way!

Furniture covers

I’m using various decor pieces, but nothing set in stone. I used faux greenery from Target to provide a splash of color during the winter. I also shopped my house for blankets and pillows – none of which are waterproof or meant for exteriors, so I just bring out my favorite comfy things when I want to hang out.

The End

That’s it! If any of these outdoor living source links don’t work for you, please let me know – I know that things go in and out of stock, and I try to keep this page as helpful as possible!
