Have you ever hated a space in your house so much that you pretended like it didn't exist? For me, it was our backyard. It had a giant concrete pad, a ragged little deck that liked to give you splinters, no grass whatsoever, and one particular weed that grew everywhere to which I am VERY allergic. 😤 It had been almost two years since we moved here. Fall was coming and it was time to take it back. Not pictured: Trash Mountain.
We removed the deck, tilled the dirt, and put down sod so the dogs had a little grass to play on. We painted the fence white and put in a little garden box. We planted flowers and hung up outdoor decorations. We also hung up our DIY outdoor lights. (Ping pong balls fit over cheap outdoor Christmas lights. Lastly, we did some DIY cinder block furniture.
