Helping with a Backyard makeover

One of my really good friends just moved back to Michigan due to a job transfer. She didn't bring any outdoor furniture because everything was so expensive to ship. She has a really nice backyard and has been looking to get it furnished and decorated so she can enjoy it with her friends and family. I guess she was getting pretty overwhelmed with all of her options because she called last week and asked for my help and input. I love shopping and decorating so I was very excited to help her make her backyard a great gathering space.

I knew we needed to start with SunDeck Furniture. If you are going to have family and friends over for bbq's and gatherings you need seating and a place to eat. A dining set is a really important piece that I think is a must for any backyard space.

I suggested this beautiful Dining set

I also felt that this wood club sofa in white




and two of these wood adirondack chairs would be a perfect fit for her patio space in her backyard.



I am a big fan of wood. Wood is a sturdy and very attractive option for outdoor spaces.
I know she is getting the wood adirondack chairs and club sofa. Who doesn't like adirondack chairs? I am still working on convincing her to get that wood dining set.

I also had to suggest she look at gazebo kits. I know they can be quite expensive but they are so beautiful and functional. They really make a backyard look sophisticated and are a great option for providing Shade.

What do you think of my suggestions? What furniture do you have in your backyard?
