Better homes and Garden Patio Challenge

Hey everyone! Happy Friday to ya! I’m so excited to be here today to show you what I’ve been working on the last couple of weeks! I was asked by a few awesome ladies from Better Homes and Garden to participate in this months blogger challenge using some of there outdoor products from Walmart and bring some life back to our patio. I’m sure you’ve seen all the new things that have brightened up the shelves at your local Walmart!

Tons of beautiful pillows, cushions, and colorful pots.

Before and After

Black Door on Patio

The thing I love about the entire Better Homes and Garden line is that it compliments my taste so well. Not out dated and not to trendy. Using their classic colors and traditional patterns I was able to add a lot of color to my patio along with some other items I had in my stash:0) . I ended up choosing a green color scheme with compliments of neutral colors like , black brown and white:0)

Take a closer look.
