I haven’t done a Front patio refresh since last October so I was very excited to give this little space a mini makeover. With how much time we have been spending at home it’s been almost therapeutic for me to decorate and recreate various rooms and spaces around the house. Even taking items I already have and giving them a new room to live in feels fresh and new.
There were a few items that I wanted to use and wish I had purchased…but missed the opportunity. So I decided to look on eBay to see if I could find them and, I did! eBay is one of my favorite places to search for great deals! It’s also a great place to look for items that stores may not be selling anymore. I especially love scoring an item that I missed out due to it being “out of stock”! But also, just great for household items, gifts, and especially designer pieces. Today I’m so excited to be teaming up with eBay to share my front porch makeover and my TIPS on how to refresh your space for summer!

Styled trays like this one are one of my favorite accessories to decorate. It can completely dress up a space. I love these for entertaining, for guest rooms, on the corners of beds and even on coffee tables. For this look I brought out my favorite rosé and pretty wine glasses to create a fun happy hour vibe. You can add candles or coffee table books to add a little more of a polished look.

It’s always nice to be able to pull up additional seating for guests so they can be comfortable. Whether it be ottomans or outdoor poufs or folding seats its always great to have extra seating on hand. Especially if you like entertaining. It is a must. But I like to always try and keep it stylish and functional. I am a big fan of constantly moving pieces into different rooms so I love when it has multiple uses.

When it comes to creating a cozy space I really love adding different textures. It keeps the space interesting and can help to elevate the style. If you have been following me for even a day then you know I love a good throw pillow and I love cozy blankets! No matter the season. I tend to stay with neutral tones and black and whites. I especially love that everything can be mixed and matched around the house. Adding in a cozy rug with the pillows are sure to keep a space inviting and cozy.

I love this part the most! I love adding in some greenery and found this beautiful olive tree which adds so much to any space but especially to the front or back patio. I also LOVE adding candles to any space. It’s one of the easiest ways to make any space feel warm and cozy. BTW: I personally only like white candles. I use all real candles even outdoors as well. The trick to outdoor candles is to put them in glass hurricanes to protect them from the wind so you don’t have to constantly keep re-lighting them. These hurricanes are actually large glass vases that I just popped a candle into.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to tag me in photos showing how you refresh your spaces!
P.s. A big thank you to eBay for partnering on this post! Everything I share, as always, are my own thoughts and opinions.
