Pottery Barn Knockoff Chaise for the Patio

If I was a trophy wife I would order the entire outdoor collection at Pottery Barn.  Insert “deep.sigh.” Chesapeake Double Chaise

But, I am not a trophy wife..{yet} so I am forced encouraged to think differently at how I spend my our money.  So I got to thinking about my Costco chaises hanging out on our deck:



and this is what I came up with…I just pushed them together to create a double chaise look.  It totally changed the look of the patio.


I love it!  It makes a great statement on the patio.  It’s funny how a 30 second change can make such a difference.   What do you think?

  13. Super idea! I saw one like this out in blogland and she draped the entire thing with a white ruffly sheet and threw pillows on it. It looks like a poolside bed! I love the happy red stripes on your cushions. So holidayish! :)
