Room In The Garden

A bit ago, I featured Stacy with Not Just A Housewife. She is such a talented gal and I am loving the room in the garden she created. What a unique and lovely outdoor space.

You have got to see her outdoor space!  This is the most creative outdoor living space I have seen in a long time.

I also met Stacy this past April and was first stunned on how beautiful her skin was.  So not only does she have a beautiful home, but her face is also flawless.  Before I had anytime to feel jealous, I fell in love with her warmth and talent.  I was thrilled to see her in the latest Better Homes and Gardens.  If you know anything about me…….and you may not……but I love it when people decorate with things they already have or with new found low cost items.  Taking something and making do, but making it better is always a better way.  It certainly shows more personality and that’s what makes your house a home, right?  Imagine walking into Stacy’s backyard and seeing this whimsical door divider.  You are instantly charmed…..well at least I would be.

My mind is on outdoor spaces, hoping to get summer weather soon.

I love how she look older doors from  a previous home and made them new again.  This is the perfect back drop creating a beautiful focal point for her yard.  They are still working on their deck off the house, so this will work in the mean time.  outdoor space

Who doesn’t have a few mason jars around the house?

To add character to her fence and to continue her theme, she added planter boxes.  Much nicer to look at don’t you think?room in the garden

Add the wood boxes to the brick wall below really helped bring more comfort to this sitting area she created.  I’m ready to attend a party in back yard!  Dibs on that turquoise chair.

Another older item you may have around is an old ladder. Why not paint it, add some colorful pots?
