well, it took a few days but the heavy lifting is done and the decorating has begun. i still need to add a few more things like flower pots and an umbrella but i'm ok with sharing it at this stage. (plus my folks are anxious to see what we've been up to.)
i didn't think to take a picture before this one but trust me, it was bad. it was just a dirt patch that was a catch-all for all the junk that ends up in a backyard. the dogs weren't even allowed up there because it was that bad. we had to add the picket fence a while back as a barrier and we blocked off the opening so they couldn't enter the "pit of despair".
all of hubby's work has turned our embarrassing landfill into this:
we have a little place to sit with a cup of coffee, because one always needs a place to have coffee.
aoife is already ready!
the left side's not done yet but i think it's a good place to show off my vintage trike. i still need to add some colorful pots and what-nots.
we've had this little deer forever and bailey has never paid it any attention. now all of a sudden she is intrigued by her.
as you can see it has NO shade, so adding some protection from our brutal california sun is top on our list.
thanks to my hubby for all his hard work. there wasn't any blood or tears but there was plenty of sweat laying that floor!
until we meet again my friends-
