Update Patio Decor for Spring

This post brought to you by At Home. The content and opinions expressed below are

I almost broke the bank last week! For reals.

A beautiful update to my patio decor to brighten, add color and get ready for summer! See all the details at diy beautify!

We were in Atlanta for a few days and stopped in at At Home Decor Superstore. My patio was in need of a refresh for Spring and I desperately wanted to bring in some color and fun pieces to brighten it up. We painted our patio last Fall, giving it a cottage feel, but it needed color and warmth! A great patio needs to be ready for family and friends and Outdoor Entertaining!

I went a little loopy when we first walked in to At Home!

How to Update a Plain Stool with Farmhouse Style

I have a sweet little farmhouse stool makeover to share with you today.

I gave my kitchen stool a farmhouse makeover using all-natural chalky paint from L'Essentiel Botanics Furniture Paint! Find out more and get the graphic tutorial at diy beautify!

This little stool has been in our family for many years and holds a tender place in my heart. Our kids used to stand on it to brush their teeth when they were tiny...those were the old days; now that they're taller than me, they don't require a stool any more!

Guess who uses it, mostly in the kitchen to reach those items on the top shelves (when my boys aren't handy to help!)

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the stool, except that I'd gotten tired of the faded pink and I wanted to give it a little more farmhouse charm.

I was recently introduced to a new player to the chalk paint game. An all-natural chalky paint.

Favorite Decor Books That Inspire

Do you love your home or do you feel stuck, unable to decorate it the way you want (because of budget or time restrictions...or simply a lack of ideas) or frustrated because your home doesn't look like your best friend's?

What to do when you are stuck with decorating challenges, or just hate your home? I turn to my favorite decor books for inspiration and motivation to make changes in my home. You can find my favorite decor books at diy beautify!
Even DIY and home decor bloggers get stuck and have times when they can't stand their spaces, and are frustrated by their home or their design choices.

The question is what to do when you're stuck?
