Matilda Rush Patios, 2018-09-26 01:48:37. 1) Light the way. The most basic part of the night patio is light. White Christmas string lights are a great solution, and there are also lots of unusual string lights, or bistro lights if you want something different. Don't forget candles, either, though you'll need tall candle holders to protect them from even a bit of breeze. You do not need so much light that you can read out on the patio, but you do want to be able to see well enough to recognize people, and to make sure your visitors can see where to walk safely. If your patio is at the end of a walkway, that means investing in some good solar path lights.
Amie Petersen Curtain, 2018-09-29 01:42:18. Another creative curtain idea is to use lace tablecloths as curtains. When you just can't find the right lace curtains in the curtain department, there's hope in the kitchen and dining room section! There, you should be able to find all kinds of beautiful lace tablecloths that you can sew to a rod and hang on your windows. You'll be surprised at how much this idea can really spruce up your home.

Aurelia Copeland Porch, 2018-10-30 04:00:56. My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table into a drink and appetizer buffet for your next porch party? I saw this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
Deana Mcgowan Patios, 2018-11-01 03:07:35. One last patio idea to add to all your patio ideas. It's a hot summer's night (we wish!) and you're sipping a glass of something chilled. On the wall you've given some plants the night off. Instead you've replace the 'planted' pot with an empty one. Added a small saucer to the bottom to block the drainage hole and placed a citronella candle on a bed of sand. The flickering glow of the candle dances over the walls and keeps those blasted midges away - all at the same time.
Iva Dorsey Porch, 2018-10-31 02:51:32. 1. What is your budget? Porches are not cheap. Just the simple act of building one can be expensive, so take a look at what you can afford. Learn what building materials cost in your area. Price the various fixtures you are thinking of using. Chances are there are places that will sell you the same fixtures for half the price of that \"brand name\" home improvement store across the street from the mall.
Simone Tucker Playroom, 2018-10-27 03:07:10. When checking out furniture for the playroom, make sure that they're safe. Look for furniture made of wood since they're the safest material for furniture. Also, check for rough and sharp edges and make sure there are none. This is why wood is perfect because the edges can easily be smoothen by the manufacturer.
Hope Vance Porch, 2018-10-31 02:52:41. Use furniture placement to create a special privacy area for reading or dining. An outdoor rug can be used to define a space also, whether it be a conversation area or bistro table and chairs for two.
Jackie Bryant Porch, 2018-10-29 01:50:25. Perhaps the least common setup is one that an individual would expect to find in a hacienda in Spain or Mexico. Having a partially enclosed deck or back patio with walls will help shield the occupants from the extremes of weather. Without actual windows or screens filling in the open spaces allows the homeowners to be part of the natural outside which is the main goal of having a deck in the first place.
Linda Richmond Porch, 2018-10-30 04:00:40. 2. Make sure that your ideas are practical. If you live in a coastal area, flimsy wicker furniture might not be the best idea for your porch. What is pretty can also be functional and durable. It just takes some hunting. You will also want to make sure that your ideas will stand up to the weather and the wear and tear of normal life. Your porch is different from your family room.
Aurelia Copeland Porch, 2018-10-29 01:53:13. If your front porch or outdoor area is large enough to accommodate a small picnic table, you can toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!). Then spread out your selection of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets filled with fruit, cheeses and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from your garden. And another nice touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
Phyllis Bryan Playroom, 2018-10-27 03:07:01. You can also turn the playroom into a nap or rest room with the right playroom furniture. With all the energy that they'll burn while playing, it's very likely that they'll need to rest after a few hours. You can buy different stools, chairs, sofas, bean bags, sleeping bags and even tents. With all the furniture, your toddler will spend the whole day in the playroom. You can't really complain because they're learning and having fun while they're there.
