Outdoor Living article from 417 HOME Magazine

Summer is almost here! Time to pull out that outdoor furniture and fire up the grill! Last summer, I took on a major outdoor living space makeover with my boyfriend, which includes a lounge area with gas fire-pit, dining table and bars with umbrellas, chaise lounges, a hammock and lots of planters filled with flowers and grasses. We went a little overboard, so much that it was featured in 417 Home Magazine. They took great pictures and I added some of my own.

Brad just had to do this pose to show off how much he has been working out. I would like to point out the aqua umbrellas in the background, they coordinate with the chaise lounges. The existing blue tile here is inspiration for the furnishings. 

The blue lounge area with pit is great, a long flame comes out of the blue glass pebbles. No logs here! 
Dining table for dinner parties and bar tables for party animals. 

Chaise lounges are on the kiddy side of the pool so the moms can watch their kiddos. If you want to see more, view the article by clicking here and here.
The living Room inside has a nautical feel - fresh and fun (different from all the dead animal heads on walls at Table Rock Lake here in Missouri)
