Fall Patio | Reveal

This post is sponsored by AE Outdoor.

I'm so excited to share with you our fall deck! Come on in!

First, here's a before shot taken last winter. Our deck was in horrible shape! You can see our first phase makeover here.

The most glaring issue left was the railing below the roofline. Placed to prevent bumping your head, but WOW was it ugly!

Our solution was to cut the supports to seat height and build a bench.

It's built from extra cedar from the siding on our house, so I love that it has that connection. Plus, cedar weathers well outside! We tested it - so when getting up and down you don't hit your head - it's pretty and functional! 

The star of the show is our new Camilla sectional from AE Outdoor. I've wanted an outdoor sectional for a long time and this fits perfectly in our space! The Manhattan, Wright, and Cooper were close contenders, but the L shape of the Camilla fit so well with the deck.

The quality is SO good - the cushions are made from durable Sunbrella fabric, the side weaving is durable and the perfect grayish brown color. It's SUPER comfy too!

We also built a tray to hang from our tree! Love having space other than the railing to rest things while we grill.

We love making s mores on the grill. It's super easy!

The girls always love watching - hoping to get a taste!


The Camilla stools have removable cushions - perfect as a tray for drinks and then a comfy foot rest or dog bed.

AE Outdoor also offers a free swatch service, so you know exactly what the fabric will look and feel like. The neutral cushions (bottom) make it easy to mix and match new pillows as the mood strikes.

We finished the railing on our deck and David built a door to keep the puppies enclosed. Previously, Charlotte has run off several times, so it's nice to not worry about her!

I know we'll be spending lots of time out here until it gets too cool! 

Thanks so much to AE Outdoor for partnering on this post! As always, I only share products and companies that I've had a great experience with and love! Also, be sure to check out the AE Outdoor blog - to see tips and how other bloggers have styled their spaces!
