{outdoor style} How to Get Your Dream Patio On a Budget

Last week, I shared a tour of our backyard transformation, along with some tips for turning your patio into a comfortable outdoor living room for the whole family. My number on piece of advice for creating your dream outdoor space is to shop the end of season clearance sales! 

How to Get Your Dream Patio On a Budget

The good news - those "end of season" sales are already in full swing even though it's only mid-summer. That means you can grab the patio furniture you've been dreaming of for a bargain right now, and still get a couple of months of use out of it before it's time to cover it for the winter. Or if you are lucky enough to live in a state where snow won't arrive in October, then you can get even a few more months of use before winter.

Patio furniture can be extremely pricey. When we were searching for an outdoor couch about eight years ago, it was very hard to find anything with modern lines for less than a small fortune! Fortunately, patio furniture has become more and more stylish over the years. And stores like Target carry entire lines of gorgeous and affordable outdoor furniture online that you'll never see in their stores. 

I recently did some late night online shopping {like you do} and I put together this list of incredible outdoor furniture sales. It's taking everything I have not to snatch up these chairs for the small patio on the side of our house. And I would LOVE to redesign the wrap around deck off of our master bedroom with this couch, these chairs, and this striped coffee table!

After searching all of the best sales, I couldn't keep all these great finds to myself, so I put together a list to help those of you who might be thinking about grabbing a bargain before all the outdoor furniture is gone for another year! I also tossed a few outdoor rugs on the list for good measure, because I'm loving the way our new Ikat outdoor rug adds more of a "living room" look to our back patio

Happy shopping! And happy summer...because while the sales might be on, there's plenty of warm weather left to be enjoyed!
