DIY Backyard Inspirations

The warm weather these days has me dreaming of our own backyard paradise as the current state of ours has a lot left to be desired. I find myself scouring Pinterest for inspiration daily. I think I’ve come up with an plan to best make use of our tiny backyard space. I’m thinking of dividing the space out in a few different zones: an eating zone, a lounging zone and a fire pit to enjoy under the night skies of summer. Take a look at the sad and desperate state of what I will hopefully get to starting in the next few weeks as I finish up my plans.

 

The privacy fence is in rough shape with missing boards and whole pieces of lattice needing to be replaced. The deck is dirty and just needs a whole lot of love. In my inspiration hunt I’ve come across a theme of what I think would work best and of course all within a very modest budget. Take a look at what has caught my eye and would love to incorporate in our own little backyard paradise.

First and foremost, I’d fix up the fence and give it a nice power wash and then stain it and the back deck. This would give me a nice and clean back drop for the rest of my vision.

How gorgeous is this, right?! I’ve always LOVED the look of twinkly lights and the beautiful ambience they give off.

This project, I am happy to say has already been completed! Yay!! {more on that another time}

As you can see, the photographer in me has already had way to much playing with this beautiful light and the bokeh these globe lights give off.

I love the look of a pea gravel and especially when used as the underfoot material for a patio. I really can see using pea gravel to create my dining zone.

I love the look of this area tucked away in a corner creating a cozy spot to hang out around a fire. I can totally see this in our yard in the far right corner with a bunch of family and friends around it all summer long!

This looks super easy to do and I love it! I’m thinking this would work beautifully on our small back deck as a comfy lounge spot.

  Well, what do you think? Are you seeing the possibilities here? I can’t wait to dive into all these projects that hopefully will one day create this vision in my head.

Until next time….

Have a super day!
