So it’s been about a week since I announced the reveal of our back patio makeover over on the Home Depot website. It was amazing being featured over there & such an honor. Well, now I’m here to chat about the whole space. This patio makeover has been a long time coming. Thank you to Home Depot for motivating me to finally make this a pretty space for our home. Before this space was a just a place to work on all of our DIY projects & it was almost embarrassing for anyone to see our backyard so we never went back there when we had people over. I really wanted to create a cozy space in the backyard that was almost like another room in our home. I wanted to do all of this without spending a whole lot of money. Not too much to ask right? Well, not when you shop thrift stores, make DIY projects, & re-use items from around your home that you aren’t using anymore. & that is exactly what we did to create this outdoor patio space.
We are so happy with this space & have used it quite often since it has been finished even though the heat & humidity here in NC has been out of control. But you know what my favorite part is? NO BUGS! One of the main reason we didn’t like using our backyard was the creepy crawlers, but with our gazebo it is really rare that a bug gets in. So nice. There are no regrets about the time it took to make this space what it is today, & we have a few more plans to add more back here, but more on that later.
