SURPRISE PATIO MAKEOVER **DECORATE WITH ME**



[Applause] hey everyone welcome back to my channel I am so excited about today's video I've been wanting to do this for quite a while now you are joining me in my parents backyard and today I'm about to give them a little bit of a surprise backyard makeover so both of my parents are now retired and they just love to spend almost every day out here in the backyard it's super green they're trying to plant lots of flowers and they especially love to spend their time underneath that gazebo so I just want to help them take this backyard to the next level and make them feel like they can entertain here they want to spend all their time out here even though they already do I just really want to decorate this place and set it up like a beautiful getaway so luckily my parents did the hard work for us they furnished this entire backyard so first we have a dining room set up so nice for sitting outside and having meals out here we have two nice lounge chairs out here with an umbrella and an entire living room set up underneath this gazebo with a sectional couch an additional couch coffee table side tables and a rug so obviously I could leave this backyard just the way it is it's already great it's very functional but I just want to stylize it a little bit more I want to add some pillows some hanging features some decor along the fence some lighting maybe a new rug they're just a few decor pieces just to pull this backyard together right now my mom is actually out running errands so that's great she's not here to watch what I'm doing my dad is currently sleeping so I closed all the blinds in the house so he can't look out the windows in the back and I'm just out here by myself to get this place all decorated and I should mention that I already bought everything that I'm gonna need for this backyard makeover decor wise so that's all kind of sitting in the cluster over there if you want to see how I shop for those where I find these pieces watch my come shop with me videos that were posted previous to this video and you guys can see that all come together also make sure you watch right to the end so you can see my parents reaction to their new backyard so the first thing I'm gonna do to get started is actually clear out this backyard a bit I'm gonna be taking out some of the pieces that I won't be using for this mini makeover so I'm gonna be removing this outdoor navy-blue rug it's not really going with my new color scheme for this makeover so we'll just put this away in storage for now I'm also gonna be putting away all these little green pillows all around this sectional again they don't go with the color theme I don't really think it's gonna work for the new design so these will be put away in storage as well for the rest of the backyard I'm just cleaning it up removing these extra dirt bags and extra flowerpots that I'm finding around the backyard so the main transformation of this backyard is actually going to start in the gazebo area so I'm gonna lay down the brand-new rug that I got from HomeSense this is an 8 by 10 outdoor rug for $29.99 so it was such a great deal I love adding black and white elements into such a neutral backyard space just to have it really pop so when this rug is laid out in the gazebo space it's really gonna set the tone of this backyard really help stylize it and just add that sense of excitement now I'm gonna be adding a pop of color to this sofa area with these outdoor pillows I opted for kind of a peachy coral tone I think it looks really nice with neutral colors like this sectional it also looks great with black and white and I think it highlights the green in the garden so nicely these outdoor pillows are by Sunbrella and I got them from home sins as well for a really great price Sunbrella fabric is great for weather resistance it doesn't fade and it's just great for outdoors so this is a perfect pillow to have out here in the backyard and I'm also gonna be layering in these two pillows one to add that contrast and to match really nicely with the carpet and this really nice textured woven outdoor pillow I think this is great it's a lumbar size pillow and I really think it gives that outdoorsy textured feel another amazing way to transform a space is adding light and I'm gonna be adding light to this gazebo area with this outdoor pendant that I got from Home Depot this is amazing it's exactly what I was looking for it comes with a little chain to attach to the hook on top of the gazebo and it's actually battery-powered so this takes three Triple A batteries and it comes with a remote which makes it so much easier it's not like you have to climb up a ladder to turn this on and off so just with a click of a button you can turn this light on and off it is absolutely perfect there's no cords attached nothing confusing you just attach this hook to the hook on top of the gazebo and you're good to go so for this fence behind the seating area I really wanted to incorporate something to make this fence feel part of the design I thought about putting real plants on the fence and doing a vertical garden but the problem is this fence doesn't get too much sunlight because of the tent so my only option was faux plants and I'm super excited about what I found I found three of these small concrete planters from home cents for $12.99 they have this beautiful faux greenery draping out of them and they add so much more interest to this back fence they're also lined up perfectly with the bulb above it so the bulb is just gonna glow over top of these plants and really highlight it I also made sure to place these in three different spots that were centered to the gazebo living space that way everything is framed out perfectly so this dining set is pretty much the first thing you see when you walk through this backyard so I really want to set the tone with this table and decorate it really nicely I want to mix in some light neutral tones some texture and of course our pop of color lands and flowers are obviously such a huge part when decorating your backyard I'm so excited to use all these new plants that I bought from Home Depot I got them in the color scheme that match all of the decor I bought some new palm leaf trees which are really gonna give this nice tropical vibe in here and then I also bought a bunch of these hanging flower baskets that are really bushy really full and I'm gonna hang them from the top of this gazebo really playing with the height and scale of this gazebo with hanging flowers is really gonna make all the difference definitely consider hanging some plants off the ground and I think it really draws your eye up and makes for a really full look I am seriously obsessed with the way this is turning out I cannot wait to show you guys now it's time to put the finishing details in to pull it all together [Applause] so I'm finally finish this backyard makeover it looks so good you guys are gonna freak out my mom is gonna freak out she's gonna love this just a little bit of decor went such a long way and the plants just totally elevated this space you guys will see exactly what I mean when we check it out together well let's go get my mom and see what she thinks of her new backyard keep your eyes closed you remember what it looked like of course yes he's had it like that for years years and years I'm very excited what do you wish this backyard to be like my Haven yes my happy place your retirement oasis yes my retirement hallucis okay one two three open your eyes oh this is just you transformed it I know you brought it all into or something yeah oh it's cozier so it's centered under the light gorgeous I what difference when you bring it in it looks like a whole new set do you like the carpet I think it actually looks nice I think the carpets better yeah you know what it brings out the furniture oh I just noticed those three plants in the back yeah isn't that so cute they're so nice are they real no they're fake perfect yeah oh because it's underneath the trees so exactly you have to worry about that oh my god that's a little tray Wow and then look I faced this towards the feeding did so that more people can face inwards instead of facing the fence oh how you can sit here and I can sit here yeah I put that plant that you like in that's a very nice song plan yeah maybe it was meant to be because I never planted it yeah get over this is beautiful yeah I know I love it and I think it just makes more sense the way it's all laid out like I love this stuff facing this way now and the umbrella between it just helps like make it look a little more even all across it does and just like how nice are the palm trees like it just makes it look tropical in there like you have your own little like cabana like might think about when you change the furniture around smaller it's a couple of course is cozier but I would have done that I was trying to make more space here well I was too but then I realized it wasn't centered over the light and then that's kind of silly so I just tried to send her everything and then this couch and the table with the center of that fence with the plant so everything's like symmetrical okay I can't believe those three lights were right there – I know it worked out so conveniently I could just hang it off the same nail that they were using a remote light oh so we'll have to see what what it looks like at night it's lovely it'd be so nice I love it out here thank you you're welcome you're really outdoors oh my I
