Do you consider the start of summer Memorial Day weekend? I sure do. Which means it’s here! Summer is here!
Good thing because I have definitely already been wearing my white maternity jeans for weeks. (what can I say, I like to live on the edge people)
Yep. All it takes is some warm temperatures and I am chomping at the bit to kick off summer. A big part of this is getting our outdoor spaces spruced up and ready for summer. I spent some time over the weekend getting our Outdoor Courtyard space ready for entertaining.
I have never shared this space with you before and it’s time you get to see the before and afters!
Here is what it looked like when we moved in four years ago.
But we knew it had potential.
Two years ago we gave this space some much needed love. The hubs constructed a plan to add the pergola (he can be so handy when he *wants* to be)- and we love how it turned out! We pressure washed it and pulled together some furniture for the space. My sweet husband even made the fun rolling table out of leftover pergola wood and a pallet.
To give the space some extra punch this year, I went with red accent colors. I love the red and blue pairing for summer! Especially with the barn stars on the wall. It feels patriotic and summery, without screaming USA!
