I've mentioned that I walked through 80 homes before I found the one we bought.
I loved everything about our home. Except the backyard. The previous owners had extended the patio to cover a third of the yard with concrete to accommodate their hot-tub.
It was a bit of an eye sore as you can see.
Shane assured me it could be great. He started drawing up plans.
And built something gorgeous.
Nothing like a pergola to make a backyard a lovely place to visit.
The yard still has a lot of work left, but we have plenty of time to do it.
We are looking for gauzy curtains to add a bit of privacy.
There are so many pretty little details. I love the curved beams.
Shane has become quite the wood worker.
I pretty much show him what I want and he goes to work.
And he's a great kisser too.
I know. I got the whole package when it comes to husbands.
Coffee table made from Ana White plans.
Yellow chair and cushions from Pier One.
The rug is from RC Willey. I need a much bigger one, but this will work for now.
Nothing like having a romantic place to have dinner and not even needing a babysitter.
Shane's building a outdoor dining table and a loveseat next. I'll post photos when they're done.
Bistro lights are from Target. (Only in-store)
Thank you Shane. I'll make you a nice pot pie to say thanks.
Best birthday gift ever.
