It’s here! Today is the day! I can finally spill the beans about one of the biggest projects in our renovation thus far– our back deck makeover.
I mentioned a while back that the Home Depot asked me to be a part of their Patio Style Challenge. They provide a patio set, and I makeover the space. And I had plenty to work with. Shall we take a brief walk down memory lane, just for old times’ sake?
Yowza, it needed some love. And it got plenty of it. Here is the newly made over deck video reveal (watch for the cute close up of Rubes at the end. Wait for it, wait for it…). Thanks to James, per usual, for his talents with the camera!
Nearly everything you see was a DIY and I’m so excited to share a slew of tutorials with you starting today. I’m sharing how to make my DIY Cement Planters over on Home Depot’s blog, The Apron, today and you guys, this is one of my favorite simple projects ever. So easy, inexpensive, and fun. And how great would they be as Mother’s Day gifts? Hop on over and check them out. Video tutorial, naturally.
Also coming up, all of the details and instructions for how we stained our deck, built the pergola from scratch, made curtain rods and drapes from unconventional materials, the mood lighting, the DIY hanging planter, the vintage bar cart, the wicker char and accent table, and tomorrow, I’m sharing all of the styling details as well as giving away one of the items I have in my space. It’s a goodie! You don’t want to miss it!
Thank you so much to Home Depot for including me in such an outstanding group of talented bloggers. I have loved seeing each one of their space makeovers– you can see them on The Apron. Endless inspiration, I tell ya.
Here are a few more photos from the space:
Phew! Feels so good to have it done, documented, and finally be sharing it all with you! Now, BBQ’s all summer at my place! And don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the giveaway. Until then, you can find me on the deck….
