BACKYARD.reveal.


With Memorial Weekend behind us, we are officially in BBQ season!  There is nothing like this time of year and I am so excited to have my yard together just in time.  I wish I would have taken a before picture for you guys.  Just envisions a rotted brown fence, over grown palms everywhere, with a few Tiki men for ambiance.




 The white fence behind the chiminea was an easy solution to hiding our unsightly trash cans.
 Potted succulents was an affordable way to dress the fence up.


 Remember my star?  An old christmas decoration that I've incorporated into my home all year long.

 My hammock ended up fitting perfectly right where I had envisioned it. I picture the trees growing big one day to canopy over it.
 Those are peaches people!  They should be ready to eat by July :)  We also have lemons and oranges.

My succulents are growing babies!  Did you know they did this?!

The only thing missing? These chairs in front of the fire.

  1. I adore it! It's so shabby chic and you. The hammock is incredible. I was going to say you need a couple chairs in front of the fire but I see that you have that in the plans ;)

  6. LOVE your space - it looks so good. you're inspiring me to go more succulents/pots from ikea for our backyard. i'm sure it rains a lot more around me than you, but do you know if they are ok out in the rain? i know they don't require a lot of water.

  13. Hey Kristin do you have any tips on redoing a wood chair from a dark stain to white? Do I have to sand it first? Oh lordy don't see myself having the patience for that!
