HOME-SPIRATION: Outdoor Fireplace

So in recent months I have done A LOT of outdoor fire pit and patio posts. I think it is due to the fact that having recently moved to Dallas I am realizing how many months of the year outdoor spaces can be utilized here! I mean its October and today the high is 90 degrees! Yes I do miss the leaves changing and bundling up for fall activities, but I definitely do not miss the snow and cold! I love the idea of an outdoor fireplace for these late fall months in Dallas. It does get cool at night and I can imagine me and David having a place in the future¬†with a gorgeous outdoor space, drinking wine and enjoying an outdoor fire. Here are some of my favorite home-spirations…

HOME-SPIRATION: Outdoor Stump Table

With summer months approaching and the prospects of moving back to Dallas and fixing up our patio, I have been doing a ton of research on patios and patio furniture. As I was browsing through inspiration images and Pinterest I came across a unique little piece of furniture, the outdoor (and sometimes indoor) stump table. It is simple and serves a great purpose, and can really be incorporated in to a lot of different outdoor furniture arrangements. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of the outdoor stump table and some great DIY resources if you are thinking of making one yourself!
