Simple to Stunning: Back Patio
The Handmade Home Blog features a beautiful backyard but how it started was not; it was all brown and a little dreary—mostly it was an outdoor space that just wasn’t inviting. The homeowner lived in her home for six years before having the opportunity to turn her backyard into additional outdoor living space. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly feel her pain… our backyard exists mostly for a place for our dog to do his business and for my husband to cook on the grill. After seeing these pictures, I feel super inspired to do something with our outdoor space and maybe you will too!
The pergola is the main feature of this makeover, if you ask me, but those beautiful wooden shutters and flower boxes add to the level of warmth for this backyard. Don’t overlook (like you could) the painted concrete floors which add some whimsy to the final look!
