DIY Patio In The Making

I wanted a place to sit out front and look at the beautiful Oak Trees we have surrounding our little place, decided to make the best of the front area with no grass growing and made a little sitting area.

Way to small, back to Home Depot I go. They had these 16" stepping stones on sale for $2.77.

Looking a little better. I got this little table and chair set last year for $25.00 at a yard sale it was faded. I painted green and I am not sure if I like the color or not, it will be staying this color for now.

I put mulch around the stone to make the are a little bigger. I think I will add small rocks instead of the the mulch at a later time.

My puppy likes it any way!

Not finished yet, but I'm on my way. would like to make "walls" for this area. I haven't decided out of what. any suggestions?

Wishing everyone a great week end!


  1. It looks really nice. I did something similar a few years ago with those same blocks and I love the way it looks. Hope you enjoy every moment you spend there- xo Diana

  2. What a cute little area to sit! I like the mint green color of the chairs and table. Your puppy is soooo cute! :) Hope you have a great weekend! xo Holly

  3. Every beginning is enjoyable. You will build on it and it will be a source of pleasure for a long time! The puppy is beyond adorable!

  4. Looking good!! Love all the plants and your puppy is just so darn cute!!!!
    You could always try a type of lattice work for the walls. The only idea that came to me....sorry I am not much help there.

    Happy Crafting
