Backyard Makeover Progress

Today was only a half day at work for me and I was really helping to be productive this afternoon.  So far, I’ve made myself an awesome chicken sandwich and watched 3 episodes of Dance Moms 🙂

I’m hoping for good weather this weekend so I can get outside and do some work on my outdoor space.  Our front is needing some lovin’ and I haven’t yet accomplished much with the backyard makeover I wrote about a couple months ago.

I do however have all the ideas and many of the supplies.  Here is what I have in store for the space:

Decorative lanterns

I purchased 4 of these to hang off the garage.  The best part about them?  They were only $2.00 each at my local dollar store!

Outdoor fabric

I plan on using this colourful patterned fabric on pillows and a couple artists’ canvases for inexpensive outdoor artwork.

Plastic pots

I bought 6 of these from a discount department store so they were relatively inexpensive.  I plan on painting them in bright colours with a glossy finish so they look ceramic.

Decorative plastic screens

Another dollar store find, I have 6 of these to hang on my detached garage.

Additionally, I’ve also purchased 2 Muskoka chairs and a bright yellow side table that will be put into the space.

On a side note, I’m really excited for a meeting I have on Friday with a contractor about putting a second story on our bungalow.  I’ll let you guys know how it goes!
