Decorating my outdoor living space with Sunnyland Furniture

 

Sunnyland Patio Furniture has been a well known brand in Dallas for decades. I worked with the owner, David Schweig, when I was on Good Morning Texas and when he came to me to partner with him and his brand again I jumped at the chance. They know the struggle with my home-buying process as a single mom and for the past 2 years I have dedicated all of my attention to the inside of my home, leaving my outdoor living space non existent.

 

Sunnyland helped me choose incredible items that fit my lifestyle, budget, and my unusually shaped patio.

 

They have so many options without compromising on quality, and I could not decide on which set would work best for Wyatt, Elvis, and I to enjoy with our friends and family. So I turned to my followers!

Thank you to everyone who voted to help turn my plain patio into an outdoor paradise!

Although I couldn‚Äôt decide, you guys had no problem choosing the one that undoubtedly fits my backyard, my lifestyle, and most importantly my budget. ūüíô

We celebrated with some bombpops, because‚Ķ 4th of July ūüėĀ

Nastia Liukin found her passion for gymnastics at a very young age, and with the help of her family and coaches, she has 5 Olympic medals to show for it.
