Create A Mom’s Backyard Oasis With #KmartOutdoor

A backyard oasis, isn’t that something all mothers dream of? I know I do! I need a comfortable space so I can unwind after a busy day. All stay-at-home parents have a full load, but recently I have realized I need a mom’s night out and nothing sounds more convenient than having one in my own backyard!

If you follow my blog, you already know I run an at-home business and take care of my 4 year old son. In addition to my main responsibility of taking care of my child, I have been playing the role of foreman for the past 2 months while our newly purchased historic home is being renovated. I spend most of my days at the new place overseeing construction projects.

Keep in mind, we have not moved there yet so the house is empty. Not fun when the kid is sick of playing cars, building with tinker toys, practicing words and singing the alphabet song and decides to have a major meltdown. We have to pack everything up and return to our rental house just so he can nap, leaving the renovations unsupervised. My husband has commented he’d go insane after 2 hours in my shoes! But, once the renovations are complete and we move in, it will ALL be worth it!

Our focus has been on the interiors; however, two of the main selling points was the brick courtyard and tropical backyard oasis. With some landscaping, lights, patio furniture and candles (and exterior paint on the house and fence) it can be transformed into a beautiful place to sit and relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine!

Here are the spaces I am looking to transform. This is my courtyard space.

And this is my backyard area.

#KmartOutdoor Help My Space

I decided to check out Kmart.com to view their patio furniture before heading to the physical store. I was beyond thrilled to see they participate in the Shop Your Way Rewards (SYWR) program! I recently signed up at Sears when I purchased my new kitchen appliances and have a $50 credit in my points balance!

This CountryLiving Cast iron & Aluminum bistro set and bench caught my attention immediately. Since my spaces are small, these pieces will fit perfectly!

My son and I drove to our local store to see their selection. You can follow our entire path to purchase google+ album by clicking here.

Unfortunately, my local Kmart did not have much left to choose from, their patio furniture and outdoor decor was almost sold out. They did have a cute retro red set, but it wasn’t exactly what I envisioned.

So I returned home to check inventory at other Kmart stores. I was able to purchase the Country Living Cast Iron & Aluminum Bistro Set online AND use my Shop Your Way Rewards $50 credit online. I selected “store pickup” at another local store. The next evening, my entire family went to pick it up and shop for accessories. I ordered the bench for home delivery since it was not available locally.

How does my oasis look? It looks pretty amazing thanks to Kmart! Finding everything has taken time, but has been well worth it.

This morning, I enjoyed my morning coffee in peace! The courtyard space is relaxing and exactly as I envisioned! I will spend a lot of time here!

And here is my second mommy space (my backyard oasis)! My new Country Living Cast Iron & Aluminum bench, flowers and accessories are absolutely perfect in my backyard. The bench arrived 5 days prior to the estimated date, so I am a VERY happy shopper!

I honestly love this space, too! I feel blessed to have 2 beautiful areas to escape to thanks to Kmart!

Be sure to check out Kmart’s current circular, you can save $70 on a Kenmore 4-burner gas grill! They also have HUGE savings on a Jaclyn Smith 7-pc dining set that is big enough to entertain for the 4th of July. If you are interested in a fountain, make sure to check out Kmart’s rock waterfall fountain on sale this week. If you are a SYWR member, you can save big on a char-broil 3 burner gas grill!

Also, check out Kmart’s twitter, Facebook, and their weekly deals.

    Love the set, especially the bench. Some colorful pillows in out-door fabric would be a nice touch!
