Hey My Loves,
I was invited to participate in a YouTUBE collaboration with my YouTUBE Sis, Cathryn – Amature Decorationg Like a Pro. This project could not have come at a better time as I knew I needed to tackle my patio. Even though I was dreading the work, I sucked it up, and jumped in head first. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of this transformation.
So, without further ado, let us get started with supplies:

Ok, so here it goes:
It’s embarrassing to even show you guys these photos. I live in Houston, where the tempature is quite often a few degrees below HELL, so I didn’t use the patio much over the last year. As a result, this space was beyond neglected.
I started with the obvious. Rolled up my sleeves and cleaned.
LOL, it always surprises me how big this space actually is. Cleaning makes a world of difference.
This pallet sectional was created by the Hubster and I a few years ago. It has endured some wear, but besides the color fading a bit, it is in good shape.
I actually recorded us making this monster. If you have a moment, check out my Pallet Furniture Makeover DIY.
The sheer curtains add so much drama to this space. I’ve been putting this office for quite some time and as it turns out it was easier than I thought.
Because I didn’t want to put a hole in my metal pergula, I decided to go with wire to hang my curtain rods. It’s not the prettiest upclose, but from a distance you can barely see it.
I mentioned above that the seat cushions were DIY, but can you believe I found these back pillows from Target that match my cushions almost perfectly. I had to travel to 2 different Target stores to get these and could probably use 2-3more.
It didn’t take me long to find an area rug. This one literally hop off the shelf and into my cart. Target has a variety of outdoor area rugs to choose from, this subtle black & white dot pattern stole my heart. So much so, I purchased two 😝.
I didn’t start off with plans to decorate this wall. Just so happen I was strolling down the aisles of HomeGoods and ran into this cute little starburst mirror. I think it’s a perfect compliment to this space. I hung it with a single nail.
Now the fun really begins. The part where you get to dress up you makeover. I call this, THE ICING!
I’ve learned you can do almost any texture or pattern you want as long as you stay within a color palette. The primary colors I chose were coral and turquoise. I’m using both gold and silver metals. And of course your standard black and white.
I literally found this color all over the place for spring. Like these two little barrels from Marshall’s. I’m assuming they are ottomans as they are sturdy enough to prop your feet or even sit on. I also added a little green to the space with a few ferns. I mean, what’s an outdoor space with out the greenery 🌱?
I grabbed as many pillows as I could fit in a cart with as many patterns as I could find.
Most of my decorative pillows were purchased from Walmart, with a few Target special sprinkled within.
The middle section of my patio has a table and chairs that I’ve owned for many years. I believe it’s from Walmart. The only changes I made here was spray painted the arms black and replace the cushions.
This set was purchased from Walmart. The back pillows have the option of 2 different patterns depending on what your flavor is. I personally like the pattern that matches the cushions.
Here are a few additional pictures of how I dressed up this space:
I truely hope you’ve enjoyed the walk through of this transformation. Please be sure to follow me on Instagram – @iamangelaeast for my most up-to-date projects. Until next time my Loves, take care.
