I never planned for a backyard renovation but I am so glad that it’s happening! Here are the plans with a few modifications from below, and I’ll explain below!

^^ So this is really what it will look like after my photoshop attempt :)
^^ Reminder, we are not doing the steps and the patio above, but I love the planter idea so I’m taking that and putting it on the other patio against the wall (on the right side with the faux fountain).

Anyway, I am going to try to stay on my Tuesday and Thursday schedule but forgive me if I skip a few post days. I don’t plan on it, but I never know what is happening next!
Diana Elizabeth bought a spray paint respirator. She put up her spray paint popup tent and did some work but then she put it away and she realized she still needed to spray paint another thing! Shoot! Maybe she’ll leave it rusty white and put it in the garden.
