Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market co-founder Lindsey Holt is an expert at taking yard sale finds to fabulous repurposed lives. Here, she transforms her own yard with vintage goods and fresh Hayneedle furniture and accessories to create an outdoor entertainment space that serves her family and friends all season long.
In Arizona, we’re lucky to be able to enjoy the outdoors year-round. Even under the scorching sun, you’ll find us outside in the pool all day long. Because I’m constantly outside with my three kids and husband, I really wanted to create a beautiful space for us to play as a family and to entertain our friends. I partnered with Hayneedle to bring my industrial-modern style to life in our backyard, and it turned out exactly how I dreamed it would.
You’ll usually find me sitting poolside as I keep watch on my little fish, so these sling chairs and patio umbrella were just the ticket for comfort. I love that the canvas material is easily washable and kid-friendly. Just give me a glass of ice cold lemonade and I am happy as a clam.
Of course, for ultimate relaxation, this macrame hammock is perfection. The set-up was a breeze. I simply placed it on this modern wooden stand and tightened it to my liking. I love lying in it with my girls and soaking in all the feels of summer. I added some vintage pillows for more contrast and style. I also clustered some agave plants and flowers to make a pretty vignette in the corner of my backyard. When we’re entertaining, we can add more seating to the area by placing these Moroccan poufs and Turkish cotton towels on the ground.
Sitting by the fire, roasting s’mores, and telling funny stories is one of our favorite family pastimes. To fit all of us comfortably, I loved this wooden outdoor sectional with over-sized white cushions. I added more throw pillows and a graphic outdoor rug to define the space. This steel galvanized metal fire pit is such a cool focal point for the sitting area. All that was missing was a spot to place food and drinks while entertaining, so I thought a vintage dresser would be a unique way to tie it all together. I planted succulents in the drawers to bring it to life and add more dimension.
