I can’t believe it’s finally here! It is reveal day for our small deck refresh with the Spring 2021 One Room Challenge. I am really happy and excited to share our refreshed outdoor space with you. We LOVE how this one turned out!
If you are visiting from the One Room Challenge, welcome! I am very happy you are here. You can catch up with our progress from the past 8 weeks here:
This deck refresh was so necessary for our Airbnb. Last year we completed the house during the Spring 2020 One Room Challenge and business has been beyond our wildest expectations. The only space that wasn’t quite up to par was the outdoor space. To be honest, it was tired and dirty, with several small repairs needed on the siding, trim, door, and porch. We knew we needed to roll up our sleeves and give this small deck a refresh.
Fast forward to today………our guests are LOVING the space now.
The blue door (Sherwin Williams Salty Dog) really pops against the cedar shake siding. Once I saw it completed, I knew we needed to add it to the porch’s ceiling, which turned out to be one of my favorite details.
Our goal here was to create a space for guests to hang out after a long day at the beach. Therefore, we needed a comfortable space to seat at least six and allow for some outdoor fun! The Ajna living outdoor wicker furniture was the perfect solution. It provides plenty of seating, is beautiful, comfortable, and is weather-resistant! We also added outdoor rugs (From WellWoven) and accessories bringing the colors from inside the house to the outdoors bringing a cohesive feel to the entire space.
The living wall and letter board have been a great place for our guests to snap a selfie and leave us messages. People have been so creative!
It’s turned into the perfect spot for an evening glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
It was also important to create a space for outdoor dining, and this dining set ended up being perfect as it expands to seat six.
It is a small space, but I think we made it as usable as possible, and most importantly, the outside now feels as pretty as the inside of the house.
Our guests have been using it for the last two weeks and have mentioned how much they love it in their reviews. For now hubby and I are putting our feet up and celebrating another ORC wrap!
We are sending a BIG thank you to Linda and her team at the One Room Challenge and media sponsor Better Homes and Garden. This is such an amazing event, and I love all the love, support, and inspiration that surrounds this event each season.
And a HUGE thank you to the following sponsors whom I have loved working with! And @Madelynhphoto for the beautiful photographs.
And the best part of this event….all the amazing inspiration! So grab a glass of wine and take a peek at all the amazing spaces the Designers and Guest Participants have created! I know what I will be doing this rainy weekend.
Until next time
