Back Yard Oasis - Part 2

Back Yard Oasis - Part 2

If you've been following the blog, I mentioned a couple weeks back i'll be doing a backyard refresh project in the weeks ahead (read part 1 here). After a some time of considerable back and forth (i.e. changing my mind over and over again) I've FINALLY settled on what I plan to do/plan to purchase for this project...which starts Friday. 

Originally I planned to purchase all new furniture, but I had a change of heart and decided I would instead refinishing existing furniture we have (and save some money). 

Below is the conversion set I've had for about four-years now. I purchased it at Wayfair (click on the images below for the exact set). It's looking a little weathered and rusted these days, so I plan on spending the weekend sanding it down, removing the rust and repainting the entire set a Rustoleum grey. When I am finished it'll look like a brand new patio set. And a little less bright. 

I also spent this week sanding down our existing outdoor dining set. I purchased the set I have a couple years back, but with a couple rounds of sanding it's looking brand spankin' new. I plan to put a stain/sealant on the top this weekend. The set I have has red table legs, but you can still get the dining set in a different color from World Market (click on the images below for the exact set).

I tried to find a photo, but I have also been working on refinishing our old West Elm bar top. Once it is fully sanded down, I plan to add a couple new barstools to it. You can see the barstools I plan to use below.

So once my existing furniture has been refinished, I want to integrate some newer pieces into the backyard (to really make it pop).

I want to add a terra cotta pot herb garden, some nice succulents, lots of outdoor pillows and cushions (which I probably will get from AtHome...the best seasonal place for outdoor cushions), a shaded area for hot afternoons. At that point I think it'll be the perfect place to kick back and relax in the Spring/Summer months ahead. You can see exactly what I plan to purchase for this project below. I've also linked everything for you.
