Pool Cabana Makeover
Hey guys! I’m SO excited to finally share my pool cabana makeover with you all! This has been long overdue, and now that this space is complete, we have been living out here. I’ll start with the after so I don’t scare you right off the bat –
But let’s back up and see what it looked like when we first purchased this property (well after we put up the new fence), the before –
What a change right? Furniture, pillows and plants made all the difference! I had been on the hunt for the perfect sectional out here since last year, and I finally found it at Hayneedle. I was thrilled that Hayneedle wanted to partner with me and provided the furniture for beautifying this space. They have such a great selection of outdoor furniture and accessories to really bring your space to life. I mean clearly, just look at the before and after out here!
This new outdoor sectional seating area is so comfortable, not to mention gorgeous. I love that it’s all separate pieces so it’s easy to move around. We could separate it and have a couch and 2 chairs, but I love how cozy the u-shaped configuration is.
It really makes this space feel like a cozy living room. The cushions are all slipcovered, so I can just throw them in the washing machine for easy cleaning.
Hayneedle has a huge selection of colorful outdoor pillows and it was fun to mix and match the patterns out here.
It’s even more fun all lit up at night!
I absolutely love these huge wooden planked planters from Hayneedle. They are so fun and beachy with ferns planted in them.
The cabana is great for shade, but we also have some lounge chairs over in the sun, and we tied in the blue and white theme with new pillows.
I love the way the pillows coordinate with the navy pool tiles and the umbrella has the cutest detailing.
Can you believe this space used to look like this?
Now it’s pretty and functional, and we have been spending SO much time over here!
I also wanted to show you the backside of the couch – I love the grey variations on the wicker. The coastal feel is a perfect contrast with the dark stain on the cabana.
I also found the outdoor rug at Hayneedle and it really grounds the whole space. I love the texture of it and it washes up easily with a hose.
Which is good, because I really envisioned this being the quiet mom zone of the pool area (quiet – ha!), but as you can see everyone (even Charlie) has made themselves at home here. :) My daughter also has big plans to make this her karaoke stage at night, and I for one, cannot wait to see/hear that!
Hayneedle just launched a fun new feature on their site, the Find, in which they serve up a hand-selected item each day that I know you’ll love. You can see the new daily “Find” here. I’ll also link each individual item in a source list below (just click on the bold words) for easy shopping, but be sure to check out all of Hayneedle’s amazing products here!

Amazing transformation! I don’t have a pool, but loving the colors for my living room!
I’m a sucker for blue and white :)
Stunning as always!!! How did you hang your curtains? Also, what did you use to tie them back? I’m getting ready to make outdoor curtains for our deck and can use all the tips I can get!
I’ll have to do a blog post about it, I used pvc piping!
So beautiful!! You’re such a rockstar designer. Thanks for sharing your creative spaces with us. Would you mind sharing what color you stained the wood? Thanks!!
I think it was Butternut by Defy
Do beautiful! How did you hang lights and drapes?
I hung the lights with those little white screw in hooks in the ceiling and then the drapes with pvc pipes!
Just gorgeous . ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Wow this looks amazing! Like a vacation destination!! Great job Kelly :) We were on the lake memorial day weekend and seeing your new house is breathtaking!
Oh thanks Lauren! Hope you all have a great summer :)
How Beautiful!! Can I book a weekend for two? LOL Absolutely gorgeous transformation, Kelly.
Happy Summer Days…
Hahaha! I do get a lot of people asking if we would ever put it up on Airbnb ;)
It all looks great! Do you know what the plant is (in the container on the table) – the one that is a lighter green, trailing plant? Thanks!
So so lovely….it’s hard to top lake view living but wow!! Home is where the heart is and clearly you have put your heart into this project. Pure Michigan joy!!
Love it! Beautiful space! I’d love to hear more about the cabana drapes – how they are hung, material, etc. Thanks!
Oh I should do a post on how I hung those! I used thin white plastic pvc pipes and they are just outdoor drapes you can buy them at Hayneedle too!
Absolutely gorgeous!!! Love everything but could really use some curtains like the striped ones. What is the source for them? If you listed it, I missed it. Thanks.
So inviting! Looks like the perfect place to spend summer in MI!
Looks like a relaxing spot to enjoy the summer weather! I’m sure that many wonderful memories will be made there!
Thanks Marie, we have been enjoying it so much out there already!
What a change. Looks great. Love the navy accents!
Thank you Pattie, I always love navy and white in the summer :) ok and all the time!
Gorgeous make over!
Thanks so much Bev!
Absolutely gorgeous! It looks like a ritzy resort pool!
Thanks! Now I just need a fancy waiter to bring me an umbrella drink ha!
Looks amazing! I can envision enjoying the summer weather in that beautiful outdoor area. Blues, greys and whites are my favorite!
Mine too! It’s such a relaxing space now.
This is amazing!!! You have a true talent ❤️
Thanks so much Marta, this was such a fun project!
Just gorgeous! My pool dream! What are those interesting bushes behind the sectional? Love them too!
Oh man I knew someone was going to ask about those and I saved the tag in a drawer somewhere and now I can’t find it lol. Aren’t they cool? I’ll do some digging and find out. They are supposed to get little blue berries on them too. They are such a pretty color when the sun shines on them.
Beautiful! You are amazing. Enjoy your Michigan summer. I’m having severe “up north” home sickness. I will not make up this year. I’m going to Cape Cod and Nantucket. I’ve never been to the northeast and that area has been on my bucket list for years.
Oh Cape Cod is on my bucket list too! I’ve never been to the east cost besides NYC have a great trip!
