An outdoor area is an important part of our new backyard remodel. Luckily, it’s a really easy DIY project. Here’s how it went.
For those of you who have been following our backyard remodel, you know we were eagerly waiting our table delivery. It finally arrived! The downside is it came in a box that said, “assembly required”. Sigh…
Although I am an accomplished Ikea furniture assembler, I didn’t feel up to the task this time. But then I suddenly had a light bulb moment. Last time I checked I had a 16-year-old capable son! Hurray! I put him to work at assembling the table. (no I didn’t pay him to do it, he’s just super! ya, I’m one of those moms…) He was able to whip it out in 10 minutes without bubbly! (see above Ikea link to understand that comment) We are very happy with our purchase even though the color was totally off. If you’ve seen my inspiration page you probably agree it’s a pretty good find. It’s also practical since it’s actually made to be outdoors.
We’re hoping to work on Ryan’s garden beds this weekend. My “not so typical” herb garden is done, so stay tuned for my posting on that real soon! Oh and I’m so excited to share Ryan’s latest recycling idea. What do you do with an old mattress? He’s working on that now too. It’s brilliant! Well, it would have to be considering he is one smart guy! (after all, he did marry me)
