With the inside mostly complete at #projecthillview & with the warm weather upon us & a pool, I have switched my attention to the backyard.
It is some need of serious work & dollars to achieve our ultimate goal. We met will Joel Loblaw & have decided to work with him & his amazing team to create the backyard oasis of our dreams, but that will have to wait for a few years. Until then, we have decided to tackle the #backyardremix ourselves. We cleaned everything up. I asked the Mr. to keep the grass cut, looking nice & green & I'll take care of the reset. Here is how the yard looks now, the before befores were way too embrassing.
I am a proud garbage picker & saved the hexagon shaped dining table for the end of my uncles driveway. A little cleaning & she'll be great. Those 4 super ugly arm chairs that are ridiculously comfy, those will get slipcovered in white terry towel. The kids Muskoka chairs will also get a coat of paint.
I'd love to clear out the back left corner to make way for a large umbrella & 2 lounge chairs.
This wall will have a series of hooks for easy hanging of towels & pool toys.
My neighbour put this extra large wicker chair out to the curb the other day, so I dragged it to my garage. A new comfy seat & back cushion & it will be ready for curling up with a fruity cocktail.
The side yard fence it tucked around the corner & you can only see it when you'er in the pool.
After seeing this pic from Kerry Rosenthal Art on her instagran artkr I instantly knew a graphic mural of some kind was in order. I like the idea of an unexpected surprise.
