Backyard Patio Refresh

I’m so excited to finally share our backyard patio refresh with you all! I knew that I wanted a lounge area since we spend so much time in our backyard and we LOVE to host & entertain.  The main thing we love about our home (especially when we toured it for the first time) is that it’s super private and the backyard feels like a sanctuary, which can sometimes be hard to find in the ‘burbs with neighbors at every angle. I did extensive research on the best patio furniture, because I was tired of spending so much $ on outdoor furniture and it only lasting one or two seasons  (nothing angers me more than bad quality). This time, I was going to do it right and find the best quality furniture that will actually last us for years to come. After stumbling upon Outer, I fell in love.  No really, when I make up my mind, it’s done.  There’s no changing it.  I was set on having Outer! I feel so blessed that they decided to work with me on this backyard project and I just loved how it turned out!

Yes, their items are SO beautiful, but mostly, I fell in love with their quality. Have you checked out their reviews? They’re crazy amazing! I loved that there are built-in covers for seat cushions, making it super easy to cover them when you’re done for the day and there is such a variety of collections — wicker, teak, and aluminum. Plus, they have tons of accessories like outdoor pillows, rugs, covers, bug shield blankets (which are honestly brilliant).

We decided to go with their Teak collection. It turned out beautiful! Here are a few reasons why we love our Outer furniture:

  • It’s Durable! The cushion cover is made of stain-resistant and fade-resistant fabric and they use GRADE A Teak.  Learn more about their Teak collection here! Plus, their OuterShell is a waterproof shell that protects the cushions.
  • It’s so comfy with their memory-foam infill. Seriously, Jeter and I have had many naps on this couch and can tell you it’s like sleeping on a cloud.
  • It’s really low maintenance! The OuterShell is an easy-to-clean fabric and as you may know, teak is super durable and will last for years and years. It’s probably one of the main reasons I love Outer so much, because it’s a patented waterproof shell that covers the cushions.  It’s so easy to cover your cushions when you’re done using them, since it’s built-in to the back of all of the cushions.
  • It’s sustainable! The entire product is recyclable (which means it won’t end up in landfills!)
  • We love it’s modular design. It can be rearranged/built out to accommodate space or entertaining needs.  Love that I can add onto the couch to make it larger if I ever need to!
  • It’s classic & timeless!

It was the best decision going with Outer for our backyard furniture.  I wanted the outside of our home to be an extension of the inside.  The inside of our home is classic with earthy tones and vibes, and I feel like this teak Outer set was the perfect extension of that theme! We’ve had it for 3 months now — it has endured countless thunderstorms (some pretty crazy ones, actually) and it still looks brand new.  We just make sure to cover the cushions after use with their built-in cover (you can see it rolled up behind the cushion in the photos below). Additionally, we plan on storing the furniture in our garage during the winter months, but they do make furniture covers that fit each set perfectly.  So, if you don’t have room to store the furniture indoors for the winter months, I would recommend investing in the covers for longevity purposes.

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.
