I LOVE to be outside. Growing up in FL, we were outside year around, and my parents kept our yard looking like a magazine pic. It was such a relaxing, pretty place to be. When I moved to AL, that was one thing I really missed. Sitting outside. Well, we have lived here for almost 2 years and the yard has kind of not really been a top priority. We've tried different ideas out there, but no great results. Well, this past weekend, the yard got some much needed TLC! My dad and Eric's dad and brother were here to help Eric do a major overhaul...
This is how it all began when we first moved in.
And...... Tadah!!!! The finished space.
We painted our old furniture and recovered the cushions, added some plants, a 15$ rug, two lanterns at 4$ a piece, and there you have it!
Lots of plants.
One of the best things is that for being in a town house, out back is really private. We love the view.
Love some zinnias!
We also laid sod. Yes, Eric and my mom and sister brought every piece of that grass through our house to the back!
Gotta have lighting for sitting out at night.
Eric built this little planter for me off of the deck. Turns out he is quite the carpenter...!
That basket was from the thrift store- a big 2$ find.
