Before I dive right into the show and tell portion, I want to extend a huge thanks to  Linda at Calling it Home and House Beautiful for organizing this amazing event. We couldn’t have done it with out you! I would also like to thank Legrand for partnering with me on week five!Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealSix weeks ago I set out to transform our backyard and patio into the space I always imagined. If you caught week one, you know we tackled the backyard in phases, but the original backyard looked like this, a complete train wreck. Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

It took us several years to tame the unruly yard and learn how we wanted to use the space. You can catch up on all of that with the paver patio,  a new fence,  side yard hardscapinga new shednew landscaping and a fire pit area. For this challenge we focused on all the pretty things and I can truly say it finally feels finished. And now for ALL the pictures!

Lounging
This is the perfect spot for a nice summer day to simply relax. This area of the patio basically got all new everything including the sofas we built, pillows, side tables, plants, and accessories. I will link sources at the end of the post. Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

Cooking and Entertaining
When we added our paver patio we built in the grill and added an eating counter. This is the perfect spot for conversing with the chef, which in our house is Barry πŸ™‚  So you can often find me sitting in one of those new stools with a glass of wine in hand while he is grilling up something delicious! We are currently trying to figure out how to make pizzas in the grill πŸ˜‰ So if you have mastered this, please send me your secrets! Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

Extra space is always welcome when entertaining outside, so when a friend built me a buffet table a few years ago, I was ecstatic! I use it ALL the time.

Dining
Outdoor dining is my favorite during the summer time. I have been dying to use the new table we built, but Barry has been too afraid to mess it up before my photo shoot, haha! Along with the table I added new chairs that are not only stackable, but they don’t have any cushions to worry about putting away! I also added a battery powered chandelier and some new table accessories. Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

Fire Pit 
We live in Colorado and while summer days definitely get into the upper 90s, evenings are always much cooler. Perfect for sitting by the fire and roasting some marshmallows. Not a lot changed in this area of the yard, but I did add new side tables, pillows, and accessories.Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio RevealGarrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

After Dark
One of my favorite additions to the backyard is our string lights. And while you can see them in some of the photos above, I felt like some night time shots were needed to get the full effect πŸ˜‰Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal Garrison Street Design Studio - Casual Modern Backyard Patio Reveal

    1. I LOVE doing this so the best compliment is when I inspire someone else! So thank you from the bottom of my heart! I truly appreciate it! πŸ™‚

  5. This turned out so cute!! That nighttime pic is perfection. I would spend every free moment out there! You guys did such a great job πŸ™‚

  6. wooooow!!!! Love everything about this this makeover. We are about about to do our backyard makeover in a few weeks. Is there a link anywhere on how to for the sofa and dining table?

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate you stopping by and your feedback. I am working on a tutorial for both the sofa and table πŸ˜‰ check back in the next few weeks or you can sign up for my newsletter to receive post notifications.

    1. Hi Kayce! The chandelier is homemade. I have not done a tutorial for it, but I made it from metal trash cans, puck lights, parachute cord, and magnets πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you so much! I did not write a post on the coffee table. The base is an upside down basket and the top is a piece of plywood I painted black. I secured them with two screws from underneath. Hope that helps! πŸ˜‰

    1. All the sources are linked at the end of the post. If you are looking for the sofa tutorial you can also search the blog for it or find it under β€œ The Great Outdoors”. Hope that helps! πŸ˜‰

  7. The links arent working for me. By chance is the fireplace still available? And from what website? Looks great!

  8. Can you tell me how your white cushions are holding up? I just ordered some from Target. Love this, can’t wait to make the sofa! Also where did you get Adirondack chairs, Target as well? Links are not working – thank you again for posting.

    1. Ours are holding up pretty well but I do not leave them outside if we are not outdoors because we have a squirrel that likes to eat them, lol! It also doesn’t rain here hardly ever. So I cannot speak to how they would hold up in a wet climate or if you leave them outside all the time, but since they are white, they should not fade πŸ™‚ The Adirondack chairs are from Home Depot and they are great! It doesn’t look like they have them in brown anymore but I love the gray ones too!

  9. Hello, Beautiful! Can you tell me, give me instructions/photos of how you built your patio couches please!
