Backyard makeover

Submitted to Garden/Outdoors

I am renovating a 70 year old cottage near the bay. This past summer I concentrated on the outside. There was zero curb appeal and the backyard was a mess. I had a circular paver patio installed in the backyard. I painted my weary white wicker furniture black and added turquoise cushions and pillows. The cute planter centerpiece is a small wood crate and mason jars with flowers. I created a garden area along the garage. The front of the house renovation included removing the gabled roof and old brick porch, a new porch was added along with a motorized awning. I painted the front door and shutters to add some "happiness" to the facade, I painted an old bench, added rocking chairs with cute pillows and a bistro table. I love my new outdoor living spaces. Onto the inside.....
