Garden Cabana

  Today's obsession? Making a backyard "Cabana". I know, I know, I have about 20 unfinished projects around the house going. But- when they are all finally done, my little Creole Crib is going to be fantastic I tell ya'.
  So, my back yard is in need of some lounging space and some shade before the heat hits. My plan is to create some type of tent/cabana/gazebo type thing. I don't want to spend a ton of cash and it has to be something non-permanent since it is a rental. I'm toying with the idea of a driftwood frame covered in bamboo fencing for the shade and maybe some curtains that can come in for the rain. Just need to take a jaunt over to the river to see if I can find the right sized driftwood. Once I get the frame figured out I'm going to fill it with salvaged/thrift store furniture that will give it an indoors-out level of comfort and that way I don't have to worry too much about the weather messing them up. I collected several images for inspiration for my garden lounge, check em out.











These are perhaps a little more grand than what I intend to finish with, but the idea is there. Lots of color, whimsical furnishings and exaggerated outdoor comfort. Love it.
