My New Patio & Yard Shots

Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday! Today I am showing you my patio that we recently built. This is a window box that will go under the window on the garage once it is painted.

I love the chippy-ness of the paint in the photo above, but I'm afraid it will need a new coat of paint just to preserve the wood.

We found the patio pavers for FREE! Someone was lifting them from their property and we happened upon them and asked them if we could have them. There were about 50 of them in the dumpster already so we brought them all home.

The blue paint will soon be yellow. If it ever stops raining, that is.

We put the rock in this weekend. I am really loving it!

This is our side yard, once again, it is growing so lush with all of the rain that we've
been getting.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, be sure to go over to A Southern Daydreamer and see other Outdoor beauties.

Looks like a wonderful spot, Cindy! And how neat that you got those pavers! Can't wait to see your house painted yellow. I have always wanted a yellow house, and I think if we ever repaint the one we are in, I might go in that direction.

Rain! We've had our share of it too, but sunshine is promised for the next few days. We are outdoor project people. At the moment our project is putting up a fence which needs to be sturdier thsn before as it kind of blew down and got all crooked. Your patio looks lovely! You must enjoy the outdoors as we do. My retired husband is a work fiend.He loves his garden and outdoor projects.

Your patio is so sweet! I love all your iron birdcage pieces. Very cute.

Ann said...

The shears, are they for decoration, or do you actually use them? What about the bird's cage?

I don't know about the security for Phil Goff. He may be the next Prime Minister.

MZ can be quite carcy sometimes. Just read in today's paper that

Prime Minister John Key's limousine was damaged last night as more than 100 activists - many angry over this year's sacking of the Environment Canterbury regional council - protested in Christchurch.

One jumped up and down on the car's roof, badly denting it.

Such a sweet patio! I really like the neat candle chandelier above you table! And as for painting your house yellow - I like definitely approve. :) Yellow has always been my all favorite color for a house. It is so warm!

You were lucky to find the pavers!
Your patio looks lovely!
Oh Cindy,here it is also raining and raining...! And I am looking forward to enjoying the terrace of our outbuilding!! But it is still too chilly!
You asked me for the bleeched look ot the oak. Well if you have a piece of furniture that isn't coloured yet, than you can bleech it with amoniak and after that with eau de javel(hope you do understand these words). But when the oak is coloured , than you first have to undo it from its colour!

I love the flowers and the decorations you have in your patio. I just wish you posted a picture with the whole of the patio in full view. By the way, the lawn is exceptionally alive, which tells me that it’s well taken care of.
