How the heck are ya?!
Did you have a good weekend?! I hope so!!
I wanted to take a minute today & rewind a bit….
Do you all remember the Back Deck Project we completed a month or so ago?!
I wish I could tell you that we’ve been sitting out there every evening & enjoying our new space….
I wish I could tell you that we could have had a handful of cook-outs since I posted the big reveal….
But with temps in the 100’s EVERY DAY, let’s face it….it’s just been TOO DARN HOT!!
At this point, I’m looking forward to the Fall & hoping to take advantage of this space when the temps cool off a bit! Am I the only one dreaming of mums, pumpkins, falling leave, & hot apple cider?! Or are you all with me on that?!
There was one more project that I completed while transforming our backyard space that I forgot to tell you about! Let’s call it……. Project “Can We Please Hide That Ugly Electrical Box?!”
I realize that this might not bother some people…but for those of us who are Type A & just a little bit OCD, this eye sore needed to be addressed!
So what did I do?!
I grabbed a brush, some primer & some white exterior paint & got to work!!
Now you see it….
Now you don’t!
Doesn’t it look so much better?! The other smaller box is our cable box….I went ahead & painted it too!
Here are a few more shots from the big reveal post…..
You can see the box on the other side of the table in this shot. Although I wasn’t able to make it go away completely…..it’s definitely blends in with the white siding now, making it a lot less noticeable!
This was such a simple & easy fix! It literally only took me a couple of hours to complete and most of that time was spent waiting for the paint to dry in between coats!
Now, all I need to do is figure out how I’m gonna camouflage the air conditioning unit! Don’t think that I didn’t think about painting it too!!
I think we are going to purchase or build something similar to this…..
I like the idea of this one although I would like something with solid panels versus the lattice!
Maybe something more like this….
Anyone seen a DIY version of this in blogland?!
I’d love a good tutorial!!
Am I the only crazy person who has painted her electrical box?!
Or are there more crazies out there like me?!Anyone thinking about painting theirs after reading this post?!
Wishing You All A Fantastic Monday!!
Talk to you again soon!!UPDATE: To see further updates to our backyard, CLICK HERE:
