I’m pretty sure I know what you’re thinking ~ at least those of you who’ve been reading for awhile, haha! I’ve been promising this post for awhile now, and it’s finally here! Today I’m so excited to be sharing my backyard and pool renovation reveal!
As I’m sure some of you know, my backyard has been in the midst of a remodel for almost the entire past year. We spent last summer remodeling the pool, and then most of the fall finishing the landscaping. And though I haven’t revealed the entire project yet, today I’m sharing one of the newest additions – my new outdoor chandeliers!
As I’ve mentioned before, outdoor entertaining is one of my absolute favorite things about summer! And though we do plenty of grilling and meals outside, we also love to spend time outdoors after the meal is over.
Who doesn’t love sitting under the stars during the summer months? In fact, I would say it’s one of the easiest ways to enjoy the season with family or friends. So today I’m sharing one of our favorite summer outdoor entertaining ideas!
Well, I don’t know about the weather where you are, but this is my first full week of sunshine since last fall, and I’m positively giddy! With Memorial Day behind us (the “official” start of summer 😉 ) and this warm weather, I’m in full-on summer mode!
Well, we have finally finished our landscape remodel and I can’t believe the difference! With new sod and some new plantings from Lowe’s, we’ve changed the whole look of our yard!
As I shared with you last summer, we embarked on a complete remodel of our yard – both the landscaping and the pool. Unfortunately, because of some very warm weather, we couldn’t sod or do any planting until at least November. And then, we got so much rain, that we couldn’t actually finish until later in the spring. So, it’s later than we planned – 9 months later, actually! But it’s finally done and we are so thrilled with the result!
As I’m sure some of you know by now, we have been in the middle of a pool and backyard renovation for the last couple of weeks (you can see some of the progress in my Instagram stories). I’ve had quite a lot of interest and various questions about what I’m doing, and how we decided on our choices, so I thought today it would be fun to share with you my design process for the renovation. I’m going to show you the outdoor spaces that were inspiring me, my mood board, and also share with you how I changed it all halfway through, lol!
