Backyard - Update 4

Backyard DIY Projects Part 4

Taking a shady barren backyard and making it a garden filled oasis one dollar at a time.

Even better actually. My daughter and her BFF had some free time and asked if I had any projects that  I needed help with.

Have you ever had one purchase help everything fall into place when you're decorating? If you are a frequent flyer on my blog then you know that last year it took me two weeks to get my front porch decorated.

Decorating the Garage Exterior with an Arbor

Garage Arbor

I am always looking for ways to update my home. Inside and outside. Our garage's exterior is no exception. 

I came across the idea of a garage arbor about a year ago and to be honest? I am still trying to convince "G" that making one would really amp up our simple plain jane garage.

Patio Decorated for Spring

Adding touches of Spring to the backyard Patio.

Plus to enjoy the cloudless sky!
