Secret Garden Patio Reveal

Secret Garden Patio Reveal This is a long overdue post about my secret garden patio.  I had a ton of photos to go through but limited them to less than a dozen.  I hope you enjoy it! When I last showed you my plans for a secret garden patio, it looked like this.

DIY Gazebo Succulent Hanging Planter

DIY Gazebo Succulent Hanging Planter On Thursday it was a beautiful day until a storm started brewing bringing 50-mile-per-hour winds.  It was the middle of the afternoon, but it was so dark it looked like evening.  The sky looked kind of creepy but beautiful as well.  I was hunkered down out in my workroom (which was formerly my guest house) working on a couple of projects.  The wind was howling outside, but I continued working away knowing it would soon {Read More}

Hiding an Air Conditioner With a Clematis Garden Arbor

Hiding an Air Conditioner with a Clematis Garden Arbor Do you have any ugly eyesore outside of your house?  What do you do about it? For us, it’s a window unit air conditioner that hangs outside the guest house. It’s dented on the outside and sticks out like a sore thumb.  It can be seen from the entrance of our house and looks so ugly! We don’t have a small window inside the guest house so my husband had to {Read More}

Patio Farmhouse Sink Potting Bench

Farmhouse Sink Potting Bench The patio area is nearly complete now and I just have a few more photos to take and edit, but I wanted to show you what my farmhouse sink potting bench looks like now.

My Plans for a Secret Garden Patio in Unused Yard Space

My Plans for a Secret Garden Patio in Unused Yard Space It’s a good thing the back of our garage isn’t visible to anyone except us, because it’s an embarrassing sight. It’s a junk storage zone, complete with two huge antique windows, a gas can, a broken bike, a broken storm door, some sheet metal, two kayaks, and lots of trash. If you stand on the side of my guest house, right in front of my garden with my vintage {Read More}

Repurposed Headboard Farmhouse Flower Planter

Repurposed Headboard Farmhouse Flower Planter See how to repurpose a headboard and old drawer into a super charming farmhouse flower planter! I know it’s only the beginning of April, but spring fever has struck and I wanted to get a head start on some garden projects. I trudged out to my workshop to see if I could find anything to work on.  Of course, there was nothing that was easy to put my hands on.  But from across the room I {Read More}
