It was a little over a year ago I gave you the first peek at our deck. We have enjoyed it for a full spring/summer season now, but just recently finished up some care taking. We had started last fall to stain the railings, but with cold weather moving in never finished. Most recently, [...]
We have been on a journey this week, exploring the makeover plan I created for Shannon’s front porch. It started with an Organic Oasis mood board. Then, we looked at some swap options. Yesterday, we looked at some
On Monday I shared the before pictures of Shannon’s porch and the Organic Oasis mood board I created for her. Yesterday we took a look at the second mood board of swap options to compliment items on the original mood [...]
Yesterday I showed you the before pictures of Shannon’s porch and the mood board I created to transform it into an Organic Oasis. Today we are going further into the makeover plan to look at the swap options board I created for Shannon.
While I was [...]
Shannon reached out to me on Facebook to ask for advice on her porch. She was challenged with an empty space to the left of her door and wanted ideas on how to fill up the space. When Shannon sent over the pictures of her porch, I had ideas for the empty space and beyond! [...]
The deck we had built last fall is coming along. It was great to have it waiting for us this spring and we were able to take advantage of some spring sales to finish furnishing the deck. The last time you saw the deck, it looked like this…
Late in the fall, [...]
My son, almost 5 years old, declared one weekend that we were going to make a bird feeder. He takes after his mommy and always has a project brewing. I was onboard, but quickly had visions of cutting wood and nailing pieces together with a 4 year old. It sounded a bit frustrating, for both [...]
Happy Memorial Day! It has been a very busy weekend for us and today is also my husband’s birthday. We will be going to buy a grill later to celebrate. My oldest son and I snuck out early this morning to get Daddy coffee and donuts. When we returned, we were greeted with the red, [...]
What a weekend! It was way too short as always, but since we spent half of it cleaning and starting to stain our new deck, I thought it would be fitting today to share the idea behind some of the unique details on our deck. These details are what makes the deck ours. It is [...]
The deck lounge chairs have arrived. The amazing deal for these chairs was not a dream. My sister helped me put them together the night they arrived and we broke them in right away for an evening gab session on the deck.
When I revealed the deck mood board, I mentioned I pounced on an amazing furniture deal. To be honest, I am still in disbelief at this amazing deal. I have been stalking this Alfresco Natural furniture collection all summer. We tried out the lounge chairs at the local [...]
Now that our deck is almost done, I am really looking forward to decorating it. I am also secretly hoping we can get some good deals on outdoor furniture, since it is already so late in the season. To keep the budget in check I am [...]
I am going to let you in on my thought processes…scary, I know. Well, I put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect design for our deck. Several of our neighbors have set the bar pretty high. Now we really could care less about “keeping up with the Joneses”, but for our home value [...]
Making your own play set canopy is easier than you might think. It only requires basic sewing skills and lots of fabric!!! I went on a thorough fabric hunt to find the perfect outdoor fabric. I also made sure I had a coupon for [...]
The playground canopy makeover is complete! I wish the whole process happened like magic as depicted in these photos, but it took a little bit longer in real life to go from the before to the after. Notice the smaller green vinyl flags during the in progress photo? Those had to go too, which [...]
