DIY black and white cabana
Today I want to show you some more photos of my Home Depot Patio Style Challenge and my DIY black and white cabana which went live last week. I wasn’t able to put them all into my post for Home Depot. And so today’s post won’t get too long, I will share the pretty photos with you today, and HERE are the behind-the-scenes photos.

For the Home Depot post I used the leopard print pillows on my 2 chaises as you can see in the next two photos:
And for the photos that I kept for myself I used my favorite greek key pillows:
steamer chairs HERE | steamer cushions HERE | greek key pillows HERE | black and white striped throw HERE and towel HERE | black and white straws HERE | starburst HERE or HERE | leopard pillows HERE
I love to always show you that you don’t need to purchase new things all the time. To me, it’s important to rotate your favorite things around so you can see it all in a new light.
To me, the star of the challenge was definitely the QuikShade Commercial tent because without it I would have had a bare tree backdrop. Like I said in Home Depot’s post I have been obsessed with the look of upscale hotel cabanas, especially the black and white striped ones but it just didn’t work out that I was able to stripe it all the way. Since I ended up having to use duct tape it would have been way too expensive to use duct tape for all the stripes. It’s doable but not cheap.
You can find the patio set HERE.
I’m totally in love with the pillows I made from the “Waverly Lotus Lake Porcelain” fabric with custom black and white striped piping (see my tutorial HERE or you can buy pillows HERE)

And since my hallway’s star pendant was such a big hit (HERE), I wanted to include something similar on my patio. The difference is though that this one is much lighter. It’s a Multi Point Star Lantern (HERE to see) and I spray-painted it copper instead of gold.
I bought these shower curtains HERE and they are wonderful and the price is right too at $11.19.
This is it for today. I’m trying to keep it short since I have a lot to catch up on. Especially my Etsy shop.
YOU CAN SEE THE BEHIND-THE-SCENES FOLLOW-UP POST HERE. And how I made the pop-up cabana.
I’ll post about the behind the scene mess on Monday. That kinda has a ring to it, doesn’t it?
This is beautiful and you are right we are on the same in regards to colors!
Yes we are, aren’t we and thanks so much
Julia! You did a wonderful job!! I am sure many people will copy your cabana idea! I know this was a difficult challenge considering your never ending snow, but you really pulled it all together and made it look effortless! xox, Emily
Thanks so much Emily, lets see if there will be copying going on 😉
it’s so amazing! wish i could come over and sip margaritas and hang out. when it’s warm. 🙂
Love that you used shower curtains!! Such a good solution!
Thanks Sarah, unfortunately I can’t use them when it’s so windy out. Can’t wait to see your patio
So glad you got your mac back up and running. Your patio is absolutely lovely and totally luxurious!
Thank you and you have no idea how lost I felt without my computer
So gorgeous – you did an AMAZING job! And that black and white tent is insanely good.
Thanks so so much Sarah
How wonderful that you did not have tp pay for your Mac to be repaired. Everything is so beautiful. And you really did fool me with making it look warm outside. I have a question. about the drinks in your photo’s. Is it Peach tea or just food coloring? I know that photos’ can be hard to get and I also know that dress and fashion photo’s are usually made to look good on the models (chothes pins and such), so just wondering.
It’s more of an orange soda mix 😉 and thanks so so much. Yes pictures do get made to look prettier than they are, you are so right
This is such an amazing reveal, even more perfect for knowing what you went through to get there! Everything is gorgeous and I love the mix of patterns and colour in the cushions! Clever clogs!! xxx
Thanks Kimberly, I will have to do another reveal when my garden is actually growing again 😉
I so love how this all came together! The cabana is genius and I still can’t believe that is duct tape. The pillows with the striped piping are so gorgeous. I just love it all – you did SUCH a great job!
Thank you! I kinda want to put striped piping on everything now 😉
Gorgeous Julia! It’s perfect!
I love it! You are so talented, friend! And I agree, “behind the scenes mess on monday” does have a nice ring to it!
Mess on Monday 😉 we should make a series out of it. And thanks so much Corinna
I am so in love with your patio! In truth I am truly in love wth everything you do. I especially love your design with pets Friday articles and your pet stories.
Your patio is inspirational for me and have to confess that I have the chairs on my list of possiblity. I do want to know where you bought your deck chairs as I am searching for similar ones. Please share.
And I love this comment, haha. Thanks so much
Wow, patio set twin, I love the cabana and I can’t believe the black stripes are actually duct tape! I am so drawn to the lotus fabric you used for your pillows. You did an amazing job!
Hey patio set twin. Thanks so so much! And you did too
Pop up tent, shower curtains and duct tape? Brilliant! Even if just for an event because it isn’t “weather-proof”, it’s GENIOUS! Thanks for inspiring duct taped patio tents everywhere! The whole look is amazing but that cabana gives a special intimate vibe: a real outdoor room.
Great work. I apreciated everything, especially when it comes to the tent details!
