I have a friend and blogger who has creative talent when it comes to
home and garden decor that most of us only dream about.
She can put together a great 'look' with very little monies.
And SHE is the one that does it. Due to life's changes -
she recently moved and had a new outdoor space to play with.
I invited myself for a private tour... come join me!
This first shot shows what she was working with...
simply a concrete slab under a deck. Nothing else was there.
Those French doors are to a daylight basement...her new basement apartment.
Now - let's back up and look at the space in front of the porch.
She brought in free horse manure ('cause it was available from a neighbor)
and stones from near by (yep, using a skid loader) - to level and create walls...
A young grandson also helped.
|Don't miss that bubbling fountain!|
Now onto the porch itself...
A close-up of that wall back there...
Burlap panels (actually landscape fabric) hang at the posts.
That simple addition 'makes' this space...
The large table is actually 2 tables and can be arranged to sit square
or end on end for 1 long table. It was built by Her Honey
while he was still in good health to her specifications and design
Now we'll check out the other side of the porch -
where you can see the arch in the photo above.
It is her vegetable garden area...
With its own entrance from the yard below...
Even raised beds get decorated...
And a final shot of that back corner...

Check back soon for a post from the inside of her sweet apartment.
