Mediterranean-inspired outdoor renovation project

Hi everyone 😊

 

I just wanted to share our outdoor renovation project my husband and I completed recently. We mostly used products from Bunnings of course. Our aim was to achieve a Mediterranean aesthetic and brighten the space with lots of white and texture.

It now looks so much lighter and airy. It's actually feels more inviting. We now spend more time outdoors than ever.

We spray painted the Jambuck BBQ to white and we reused the pendants and spray painted those too. The outdoor lounge was a marketplace find which we also painted white and added the timber frames to warm them up a little and also to match the style we wanted. The dining table a marketplace rescue, was left as is. 

To add a bit of warmth to an all white palette, I added blonde woods, textures and painted some of our pots terracotta. The fence screens also from Bunnings were spray painted white.

Some products listed below. Would love to hear your thoughts 😁

The before was alright but it lacked the brightness and relaxing holiday feel.

Re: Newly renovated outdoor area - DIY

Hello @LaCasaDIY

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's wonderful to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your renovated outdoor area.

 

What a beautiful makeover! If I look at the pictures long enough, I can start hearing the ocean. I love the Mediterranean vibe you've put in. Everything is where it should be and it looks so relaxing. I can understand why you would want to spend more time outside. It feels like you're on vacation. 

 

Thank you for sharing your materials list. I'm sure our members will appreciate the fact that it doesn't have to cost an arm and leg to get the look you're after. If you have any other projects on the go, please don't hesitate to share them.

 

Again, thank you for sharing your outdoor makeover project.

 

Eric

Gorgeous @LaCasaDIY !  That is a wonderful transformation.  I love you added the chunky features and warmth to the space.  But the white elements really lightened and brightened it up.  I think I should invite myself around for a cocktail, BBQ and to watch the footy.

Re: Mediterranean-inspired outdoor renovation project

Wow. I love this outdoor area. Looks amazing. The only thing I'd be concerned about is the TV being above the BBQ.
