Backyard Honey-Do Project
May 10, 2011
Hubby has serious mixed emotions at the end of the High Point furniture market each year: On one hand, he is thrilled that I will have somewhat normal working hours again since he has been playing Mr. Mom for the last month plus. On the other hand, since I have been working to make so many beautiful settings in our showrooms, I come home full of lots of ideas for our house. Thus, making his Honey-Do list quite long.
This market is no exception. With some early warm temperatures and longer days, I had some serious spring fever and wanted to spend some time outside. Hubby did too but his idea of spending time outside is on the golf course. Nonetheless, being the good sport he is, he jumped right in on my game-plan. Our patio isn’t in exactly what you would call “resort living”. Overgrown, dirty and neglected it was in need of some serious TLC. So, after a trip to our favorite local nursery Price Nursery and some brainstorming with my garden binder we were armed and ready to get started. Did I say we? Oops – I meant to say I was ready to get started, but hubby plays along anyway (and does a fantastic job). Isn’t he a gem?
Here’s a peek into the process:
Step 1 – REALITY
Step 2 – INSPIRATION
Step 3 – A PLAN
Step 4 – SHOPPING (yes, admittedly my favorite part)
Step 5 – SWEAT EQUITY!!
Stay tuned! I’ll be posting photos of this quickie backyard makeover, just in time for Spring dinner parties!
