Guest Cottage Porch Makeover

I have another fun outdoor space to share today with this little guest cottage porch makeover. Actually, I should say it’s a partial makeover. The new windows should arrive later this week and then it’s really going to look different – can’t wait!

For now the seating got a major upgrade thanks to Sunbrella. I’m excited to be partnering with Wayfair and Sunbrella today. Wayfair has a huge selection of Sunbrella products. They have great patio furniture, umbrellas, and pillow options to choose from. My love for Sunbrella fabric has been well documented here on the blog over the years. It’s just the best for our outdoor spaces because it’s durable, weather resistant, and fade proof! All must haves here on the lake.

Let’s take a look back at where this patio started…

Yikes, we have definitely upgraded the seating!

This cute wicker loveseat is the perfect size for our small guest cottage patio. The gray tone of the Sunbrella cushions is going to look perfect with the new gray french doors and shutters that will be installed.

Our first guest has already made himself right at home…

The matching coffee table is a really nice size as well. This patio has lovely afternoon shade all summer, so I think this may be the perfect spot to sneak away.

I added these subtle patterned Sunbrella pillows as well for another layer of comfort. These pillows are perfect because they come in  a pack of 6 – no need to try to mix and match! I don’t need all 6 for this small space, so I actually keep a few out by the fire pit too.

Charlie thinks the extra pillows work great right here for afternoon napping.

Modeling can be exhausting…

We also leveled the pavers and gave them a fresh coat of semi-transparent concrete stain. Some freshly planted flowers for a little color, and this eyesore is well on it’s way to being a cute little lakeside oasis.
