The main feature of this patio upgrade are the crates and potted plants.  I also love the shear curtain hung in the background, it really gives a breezy, relaxing feel which is exactly what you want while enjoying a coffee or beer.

Before the upgrade I had only a iron bistro set on the porch.  Since this set is timeless, it fit right in with the new look. At the store I picked up a few items that I thought looked nice together, both trendy while sticking to my style.  Between the dollar store and department store the whole upgrade only cost $50 and it took less then 45min to put together.  The longest part was installing the shear curtain because I had to screw them into the wood.  Here’s a quick list of materials that made my upgrade look amazing!
