Fun and Fresh Painted Patio Makeover

Hitting REPLAY on one of my favorite Posts.
Its finally spring (its suppose to snow on Friday)
and I can't wait to be able to be out on my patio again!
You can see the full transformation here!..

Good Morning my Beauties!
I have a fun little makeover for you this Monday!
I have wanted to make over the patio for so long and
once the house had finished being painted
the patio stuck out like a sore thumb. 
I really didn't want to start another project but we were having
some very MILD weather and it had to be done
so I just had to buck up and do it!
 This was the you know WHY it stuck out like a sore thumb against the freshly painted house.
The patio has seen YEARS and years of wear and tear.
It had tons of pitted spots and lots of stains and mildew.

 the first thing I had to do was Power wash and scrub the whole thing .
 You can see the difference already with just the cleaning.
but it still was rough looking.
 I went to Lowes and grabbed this patio paint (I am not being sponsored by lowes or valspar, I just wanted to show you the type of paint I was using)
 I started rolling it on and was thrilled with how great it looked already.
BUT.....YOU KNOW ME.....
I can't just have a plain patio.
It just wasn't me.

So I grabbed one of my Mylar floor stencils and a lighter gray patio paint and started rolling on my stencil. I was in LOVE...I wanted it to look like an outdoor rug so I just ran a border around the outside edge of the patio.

 I was so happy with the results.
The difference was unbelievable.

It is now one of my favorite places to have coffee in the morning.
Its not fully decorated yet. As usual its a work in progress, but I just couldn't wait to show you.

I hope you enjoyed this quick makeover.
Don't forget to comeback tonight to link up the the TWIRL AND TAKE A BOW
link party to show us what you have been working on.
Until then,
Go make someone's day beautiful!
