AH Crafty Challenge – Outdoor Light & Patio Makeover

When we met with our new landlord for our initial house walk through, I noticed this very sad looking hanging light sitting in the middle of the patio. I made a point to ask if the light could stay; I’m pretty sure it’s future was dim, and it was destined for the landfill. The sad, lonely light fixture is the inspiration for this week’s Atomic Hostess Crafty Challenge – Outdoor Light & Patio Makeover.

If you don’t live in Southern California, you’re probably thinking it’s silly to be planning a patio makeover right now. If I were anywhere else, I know I would think it’s a nutty! I’ve been hoping for overcast, chilly weather for at least two months now, and I’m sure it’s nowhere in sight. It seems to always be patio season here; the 10 day weather forecast in Huntington Beach is around 80* average.

  • My Vision:
  • Paint and rehang light
  • String outdoor lights
  • Patio chairs – remove rust, fresh paint & seat cushions
  • Outdoor / Seagrass area rug
  • Not sure about this one yet….scallop drape fabric from patio beams
The patio sort of connects the living room and master bedroom. Once the makeover is complete I have a feeling it will be a well used area for dining, and just hanging out.

I know I’m excited about most of my AH Crafty Challenges. I’m especially looking forward to this one, this is a great spot to start the day with a cup of coffee, and a great spot to end the day with a glass of wine.
