#FridayFavorites: The Walfab Company – Outdoor Fabrics

We stepped even farther out of the box this #fridayfavorites with some outdoor fabrics from The Walfab Company! We picked this company because of its diversity and uniqueness. Not only do they do all sorts of fabric lines, but they also create some fabulous wallcoverings! Walfab started by catering to designers in south Florida, but decided to expand their horizons after doing so well. We love some many of their fabric lines but especially the outdoor fabric line. Walfab mildly stuck to their tropical brand and mixed that up with the modern and transitional styles from their new brand. We have so many examples as you keep scrolling. Just try to imagine all these fabrics on your cushions on your back patio, and you will probably yearn for them just as much as we do!

Upgrade Your Patio

Summer is half way over! We need to make sure our patios are ready for the end of summer parties and the backyard fall nights. We’re here to help you make your patio space just as inviting as your interiors. Spicing up your backyard is a lot easier than you may think. With the right tools, strength, and some spare time, you’ll have the absolute best hangout spot all your friends will be jealous of!

If your flooring is similar to the one in the picture, no need to put a rug under the table! The flooring has enough style by itself. You can use a table that you already have or buy a new one that will fit in the space comfortably. Then you can buy some outdoor pillows, color or no color, for the sitting area.

If you can, it’d be nice to incorporate light curtains, as shown in the picture below, for both decorative and privacy purposes. Lights must be added for a final touch of pizazz as well! You can choose any hanging lights and place them to drape above your seating area or whatever type of lights you would like really. Your patio is a very versatile space that should show off a bit of your personality. Now, you have designed the ultimate patio to help you enjoy those late summer meals!

     Why not make your own day bed to lounge on this season!? There’s no reason to buy expensive outdoor furniture when you can make it yourself. There are countless wood plank projects to try, but you have to start with this one! By using pallets, you can create a modern and chic patio day bed all on your own. To begin this project, you’ll need a lot of wooden planks and screws to make the foundation of the bed, which can be purchased at your local Home Depot. Once the bed is built, you’ll need a mattress to place on top. The photo below used a folding foam mattress from a folding guest bed. Then, you can paint the wood and style your bed however you please!

     For our last idea, you can simply add some colorful paint to your existing furinture. Whether you have plastic chairs, or wooden tables, a little bit of pretty paint won’t hurt! This project is perfect for any patio, but start by figuring out which items of furniture can be safely painted without ruining the material. Then, you can select your favorite summer paint colors and get to work! For a final touch, you can throw in some patterened pillows like the ones shown in the picture below to top off your seating area. You now have a vibrant, summery patio to show off this season!
