Balcony Refresh

The weather this past weekend was absolutely gorgeous.  With my mom's help, I was able to get my balcony all cleaned up.  Last year, my apartment complex rebuilt some of the balconies, mine included.  It took them quite a bit of time to actually finish, so I was without an outdoor space for awhile.  When the balcony was finally finished, I still didn't use it much.  I really wanted to change that this year, so we refreshed the balcony a bit.  

My mom and I found a small table at Target,  that we thought would work well for the area.  To add a bit of color and comfort, I found some super cute pillows at World Market.  I love how the black and gray tie the new table and my existing gray chairs together.  I love the look of having lanterns outside, so I picked a few up for the table to complete the refresh.

I just love how it all turned out.  Simple additions, but ones that really make a huge difference!  I cannot wait to enjoy dinner or drinks outside.

  1. It looks so nice! I'm sure you'll get a lot of use out of it this summer. I'm so jealous, I wish we had some sort of balcony or deck!

  13. Dang, Emily! That is a really nice outdoor space to have in an apartment! Your view is amazing, too! It's always nice to be able to look outside and see trees and other parts of nature instead of someone else's back yard! Everything looks great!
