My Eclectic Patio

What’s Irish and stays out all night?

Patty O’Furniture!

I’ve searched through glens and dales for years for the perfect patio furniture.

To no avail.

Until …

I innocently sashayed (yes, I sashay) into Home Depot for paint for my dresser planter

and walked out with the most fabulous patio furniture anyone could shake a shillelagh at.

It was like finding the elusive four leaf clover when I scoredΒ my vintage porch glider at an estate sale.

And the heavens parted once again with this $15 marble topped mid-century table found at the Nun’s Yard Sale!

Another one of my vintage mop bucketsΒ – this one rocking and rolling on casters!

Luckily I spotted my neighbor trying to toss this huge old metal container used to import tea leaves before he had a chance to trash it
(yes, he now thinks I have issues)!

  1. I looked at that EXACT SAME FURNITURE when I trotted (yes, I trot) into Home Depot for my can of baby poop to smear on my living room walls. I *heart* it. I am waiting to see if they still have some after July 4th. Your space looks fabulous! (Where are my nuns and why are they not having a sale?)

  2. Oh EM Gee, you cracked me up this morning!!! And I would be able to nestle in here after we get sick of sitting under the willow tree. You know I love the shell detail among all of your fab finds. And what is a glen and a dale exactly? Sharing on fb and for sure pinning. πŸ™‚

  3. Kelly…..I forgot all about that furniture. *sigh* It looks absolutely amazing. i love it. And all the little details….like your dirt filled tea leaf importer πŸ™‚

    πŸ™‚ me

  4. What time are you serving up those mojitos? Let’s see, if I leave now I should get there sometime around 4 in the morning …

    Love how well you blend the old and the new …

    … and loving that you sashay through Home Depot!

    Hugs,

  6. Ha!..Pati O…I have to use that line!!…OK…I have not been in Home Depot for ages…Lowes is closer to me…I am ecstatic over that furniture….like over the top…have to have it….I look at places like Summer Classics for patio furniture that resembles actual furnishings for the inside…OK..I am getting dressed and walking out the door!!!
    Your patio is magnificent and I love the mop bucket…again…perfect for the patio cuz of the wheels!…

  7. Kelly, this is such a fabulous space. I wish we had added a patio below the deck. Love all the vintage touches along with your furniture finds.

  8. Your patio looks fabulous!! I got to move to your area! You get to find the most amazing vintage finds and now not just vintage!! That patty O furniture is great!!

  9. Oh, I saw that set at Home Depot also and I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, I’ll have to love it from afar because I already have some porch furniture and I can’t divorce it yet. Your patio looks lovely!

  10. LOVE that patio, the furniture, the stones, the toolbox planter πŸ™‚ and I also sashay frequently, no actually all the time…

    Have a great one!

  11. Well I’m Irish and so far it hasn’t helped me pull a nice patio area together. But that was before I had all this blogging guidance. Maybe this is the year?

  12. I saw that set at my Home Depot and had to restrain myself. All of it looks gorgeous!! I love your mop bucket turned planters, but the best is the container for Tea Leaves. My neighbors have known for years I have junque issues. They eventually stop looking at you strangely and start giving you their junk!

  13. Good thing I just swallowed my sip of coffee instead of spraying it on the screen! Boy, do I appreciate a laugh! After we finished our deck last year, I ran to 3 different Targets (all in different cities over 1 hour away in different directions) to get my patio furniture on clearance. Dang it…now I wish I’d waited! Love your furniture!

  14. I absolutely love your mix of of vintage and mod. All your pieces are just so fantastic. The Home Depot stuff looks classic and fits in perfectly. I struggle with mixing styles – this inspired me to continue to be true to my own likes!

  15. It is just so nice to meet another sashay’er! LOL! Your patty-o looks absolutely incredible Kelly and I can’t get over how fantastic that vintage glider is. And I’m not jealous of that beautiful sunshine I see there while I set here looking at clouds out my window…nope…not jealous at all! πŸ˜‰

  16. It all looks patio perfect! Love all the flower planters too!! My mop bucket needs some fresh ones this Summer… I am so behind. Still loving the glider. THAT was a find πŸ˜‰

  17. I always get such a giggle from that joke… Your patty o’furniture is really pretty. Nice find and it’s great that you got the refund. The mop bucket planter is a great idea with the wheels…easy to move around.

  18. Dude! You rocked that furniture! It is GORGEOUS_ it looks nice enough to be indoor, I think! Way to go, chica!
    Although, I have to say, my favorite part was you saving an extra 4 big ones!! Most excellent shopping I’d say!

    {I loved the glider too, the color is the bomb!}

  19. Well I still hate you just a little bit for finding that glider. Love the color of that. My Home Depot did NOT have that furniture! I can see why you fell in love. Great post at Hating Martha!

  20. YOU JUST BLOW MY MIND!!!!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it…almost enough to go sit out in it…hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm do the chairs come with watermelon margarita’s? that just might be the deal breaker : ) LOL!!!! the turquoise couch piece is just OUTRAGEOUS!!!! (hugs)

  21. Kelly, you amaze me with your creativity! I would have never thought of a vintage mop bucket for a planter. Love your patio and all the furniture. Your play on words is funny too! Love, love, love the vintage glider! You mix things up so well.

  22. you crack me up!! your eating area is seriously so cute!!! LOVE that glider! the new patio set is great…and how awesome is it that you were able to get a refund from when it went on sale…woo hoo!! now get out on that patio and have some wine…

  23. Your patio has it going on! What will you find next? Look at you getting that credit! You know how to work the deals and the cool stuff. Love it all!

  28. Your Patty’O looks so inviting! I want to curl up with a book on that amazing furniture you got! I love the contrast between the old and the new, and how seamlessly it goes together!

  29. i found you at get schooled saturday. i absolutely adore this patio. beautifully done ! & yay for the $400 credit ! gotta love that ! hope you don’t mind if i follow you. “vintage with a modern twist” describes my tastes perfectly, so i think you could be of some inspiration to me πŸ™‚

  30. Stunning combination of pieces!!! Love your blue couch and loved the container you got from the neighbor, lol
    I will check for this patio set at Hoe Depot here! Score!

  31. So, so, so awesome!!! I think you and I could be junk buddies. I think we both decorate with mostly other people’s junk.

    It looks so fantastic! I’m loving the patio too!

  32. shilelegh…haven’t hear that word in a while, nor do i think i’ve ever seen it spelled…obviously, lol. what a great find on that furniture, and good for you for going and getting half your money back! that’s awesome!

  33. I must sashay right on over to my HD and see about this furniture. Your patio is perfection! I just let a two seater glider slip away from me at an auction … I’ve not be the same since. I love yours.

  34. I am sure that you already know this from all of the comments that you’ve received but…you’ve done a beautiful job! I’m pinning this for future inspiration!

  36. Just love your yard .. your patio furniture and everything. Wonder if I could fit that patio furniture on my front porch. Need to run to HD. I have containers … just need to find some plants the deer do not like.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely back yard.
    Hugs,

  37. I wish I had seen this post years ago when you bought the patio furniture. Do you remember the exact name of the set? I want to try and find it online somewhere, I am IN LOVE!

  38. Love your inspirational ideas, Oh, and your beautiful mind. It just makes me wish I lived close to you so we could hang out, plan strategies and make cool adult beverages. I like the idea of planning sale runs. There is a garage sale that goes from the outskirts of town all the way to the coast each summer. So much fun! Happy Hunting.

  39. Hi Kelly,
    Can you remember the name of the range that this furniture is part of? I love it but I don’t think they sell it anymore.

    thanks
