Heading Outdoors: Balcony Details

Hey guys! Sorry for the radio silence, but I've been crankin out coffee tables and desks like nobody's business! And while I hate that it took me away from you guys, I'm so excited to finally be contributing to the household! (believe me when I say that the pressure is REAL)
 
But you know what? I'm back today to dish on the details of the balcony! Yaaayyy!!!
  
 
Console Table: DIY (details soon!)
Gold Lantern: You've seen it all over the blogsphere, so you know it's from Target
Yellow Plant Holder: Target's infamous $1 section
Footed Brass Bowl: Thrifted
Blue Agate Coasters: The Evolution Store (such a great price that I'm
thinkin about ordering a pink set too!) 
Altuzarra Gold and Glass Double Old Fashions: Target clearance
Yellow Drum Table: Homegoods (It had this suuuuper gross painted wood finish,
so I gave it a coat of primer and high gloss spray paint)
 


Blue & White Trellis Pillow: Custom, fabric from here
Planters: WalMart & Homegoods
Chairs: IKEA (they're much larger than they seem on the site)
Nesting Side Tables: Thrifted
Dot Rug: RugsUSA (clearance)
Plants: Home Depot Garden Center
I know I told you guys that I wanted a set of 4 chairs. Well, guess what? I got 4 chairs! I just have them stacked in 2's. Since we don't have guests very often (or ever), I figured I'd let the space breathe, and be ok with just a 2 chair set up for myself and the hubs.
 



But it only takes a quick switching up to get the space ready for a few guests. I just move a couple things around, utilizing the length of the balcony. The side tables then function as a small coffee table and yellow drum gets pulled into the space for additional surface area for drinks.

Nothing mind-blowing, but it definitely works!
 
So, I think that covers it. Did I miss anything? If not, just ask away and I'll get
the answers right to you.
 
I just want to shout a huge THANKS for all of your sweet comments on our little balcony. We use it at least twice a week now and it makes us so happy that we now a "pretty" place to chill.
 
Xoxo,
Coco

    1. I know, it's kinda sad. All of our closest friends are over 2 hours away and beyond. We're still on a search for some local ones...hopefully we'll score pretty soon.
