How to Create the Outdoor Patio of Your Dreams

How to Design the Outdoor Patio of Your Dreams // Patio Ideas // Porch Ideas // Outdoor Patio

We had the intentions of renovating one of the bathrooms this spring, but have decided to wait until next spring when my father can help us. We will end up saving lots of money without a contractor and it makes more sense overall. Our patio is made of blue stone, which is gorgeous, but unfortunately it’s completely falling apart. It’s dangerous because a lot of the stone is breaking apart and loose. Our project for the summer has now changed to a new outdoor patio, which I am SO excited about. I put together this post to give you some ideas for your own home and tell you a little bit about my thoughts about the renovation thus far.
