Now that I’m home every day and the weather is so nice I’ve been spending a lot more time in our backyard. Last year when we were doing our big home renovation we did a little updating to the backyard (see pictures below) and since then we’ve purchased a few things to utilize the space. We really lucked out with the size and have a lot of room to work with. That said there are still some things on our wish list and hopefully we’ll get them checked off before summer.

Here’s what it looked like when we bought the house

We got rid of the sunroom and tree, added a roofline, another set of french doors and demoed the patio.


Here’s what it looks like today

(We also painted the whole house white.)

Last summer Jeff built our outdoor lounge furniture and this year he wants to build a larger outdoor dining table. Aside from that, the remaining furniture is really random so that’s what we’re looking to update.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger and ordered this set. It should be here in a few days and I can’t wait for Crosby and Mackie to enjoy it. It’s so cute I only wish they made something similar for adults! Now we for sure have to get these umbrellas to match.

Happy Wednesday – thanks for reading!
