Inexpensive outdoor updates! It's spring!!!

Ahh Spring! If you blink you may miss it here in Indiana. But you better believe we Midwesterners anticipate it like our first born child. We get our mowers out and clean them, wear flip flops when its still 50 degrees and start bringing out our lawn furniture and grill before the last frost is off the ground. Its like the second definition of Hoosier Hysteria. 

So in the excitement of it all. I'm gonna hold off any project reveals inside my house to tell you what is going down in the patio furniture world. I have never purchased expensive outdoor furniture because I flat out don't believe in it. Our last set was from Kohl's with accents of World Market & Target thrown in the mix! There is no need to buy Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn or Frontgate furniture because places like Lowe's, Target, Kohl's, World Market and Ikea have borrowed the look and are charging a tad,  um, quite a bit less for it!!

Take for instance, these modern marvels... So in love with these chairs from Lowe's! Neighbors, you will see these coming out of the garage very soon!! These are the Tucker Bend Steel Patio chairs and they retail for $65.00. Not too shabby!

Most people don't assume this but Kohl's never disappoints with their seasonal patio furniture and the prices are always right. And as everyone knows, Kohl's is ALWAYS having a sale on top of their sale price!

Love the color of these coral cushions! This is the Sonoma Belle Harbor collection from Kohl's. The 3 piece set (two chairs and side table) retail for $224.99. I love the criss cross back!

This 4 piece Bayview, loveseat, chair and coffee table set are on sale for $359.99!!! What?!?! Yes, ALL of that for the price of one chair at some other stores. 

And if its larger scale furniture you are looking for to fill some ample space you can really get some designer look alike options without having to pay Crate & Barrel like prices.

This is a EHO Studios 6 piece conversion patio set for $2,360.00, which is a lot of furniture for that price! This EOH line from Lowe's has lots of very cool and modern outdoor options!

This is a cool and modern way to seat a lot of people around a table! This is the Tosh 5 piece dining set from Lowe's and is $2,198.00

This might be kind of interesting although I have not seen it in person. It is fully upholstered outdoor furniture by Target. This is the Leigh Upholstered 4 piece set for $959.00

Of course if its Teak you are after, Target has the Smith & Hawkin line and the prices are way better now than they used to be when you had to buy their brand from their stores. 

If you need some accent pieces or reasonably prices Adirondack chairs in fun colors, World Market is a great place. And it just so happens that right this very minute they are offering 15% off all of their outdoor stuff!! 

Fun side tables in in red, teal and apple green!!

Love this metal coffee Table!!

World Market has a fun new Adirondack design!! They still have the original style in several colors too but I am liking the new lines on this beauty. The new ones come in three different colors!

Love World Market's fun pillows this season. These are my favs and happen to be one of our new outdoor pillows I am throwing in the mix this season at home!!

I love outdoor rugs! They can make an outdoor area feel so much more like a living space. These gems are just two of the many cool rugs World Market has this season!!

If you want to try your hand at a little creativity and DIY action. This would be very cool as an outdoor patio table!! These are just Home Depot whiskey barrels they had for $30, filled with seasonal or event appropriate decor and topped with a glass top! Love this idea!!

I love this DIY project! This is so genius and would create great seating space especially on a cramped patio! You can find these pallets anywhere they get shipments of large items. Great way to save money and reuse!

  1. Love this! I want to get our stuff out this weekend. Love the World Market stuff!

  2. Some really great stuff and I learned something new about Kohl's. I never go in it but I guess I have to start ;)

    1. Yes they have great sales and they are like any other discount place, very hit or miss but always worth the try!!

  3. I prefer the Tucker Bend Steel Patio chairs, it's simple yet classic for me, and it seems so easy to pair with other furniture.

  4. Buying good looking furniture for the outdoors is extremely important as anybody who comes to your house sees them first. It gives them a certain impression about the family which occupies the house. There is nothing better than buying Outdoor Furniture Adirondack Sonoma for making a memorable first impression on anybody!
