I'm super excited to share with you all our new deck space and how we furnished it (thus far) on a budget. Deck and patio furniture and decor can be so expensive and when you live in the upper midwest the time spent on your deck or patio can be iffy. We don't spend loads of money on anything (besides ground beef - I refuse to buy ground beef unless it's 100% grass-fed and finished), so like everything else I purchase, I shopped around.
Retailers make it very easy to walk in a store or shop online and purchase entire outdoor seating sets with everything you need including coordinating pillows, outdoor rugs, drink glasses, end tables, decor and anything else you can think of to make your outdoor space welcoming. That can get so expensive - and I definitely don't shop like that. I prefer to shop the sales and trust myself when it comes to coordinating everything. And for this space, I decided to go in a completely opposite direction of the decor in our home and use bright modern colors. I also forbade myself from using anything rustic, aged, or vintage.
