Happy Friday Friends!!
I don’t know about all of you, but this week has been a long week for me! I am SO looking forward to the weekend….we are leaving later this afternoon for a little weekend get-away and I’m so excited!!
We will be visiting some family up north & also making a trip to see my sister on Saturday as well! If you have been following this blog for some time, you may remember her little fixer-upper that I blogged about last summer. Her & her fiance bought the house & have been busy making improvements to it. I’m excited to see the changes that they’ve made & also help her with a little project that she has been working on. More details on that to come!
In other news, I have another fabulous outdoor room to share with you today as part of my Happily Ever Before & After series!! This beautiful back patio makeover comes to you courtesy of Traci at Beneath My Heart. Traci was one of the first home bloggers to reach out to me when I started this little blog a couple years back. I had the pleasure of rooming with her at Blissdom last year & got to hang out with her at Haven as well. She is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met & SO, SO down to earth! Her & her husband, Cy, are a couple of DIY Rockstars & are busy transforming an old brick ranch-style home that they bought almost two years ago. They have completely renovated the kitchen & have just finished up with a brand new guest bathroom. In addition, they have busy working on a new addition to the home which includes a GORGEOUS new master bathroom that you MUST check out as well!
The outdoor space that I’m gonna share with you today is actually part of their old house. Here is a look at the “Before” photo.
As you can see, the space was already beautiful! It’s obvious that Traci had a great space for entertaining, but she knew this outdoor room had more potential & was ready to give the space a little more character. So her, and her husband Cy, worked their DIY magic on this space & completely transformed the way it looked.
Let’s take a look at the “After” photo, shall we?!
Can you spot the differences in these two photos? The biggest difference, and perhaps the thing that added the most character to the space, is the new “tile” stained concrete! How awesome is that?! Yes, Traci & Cy taped off the concrete patio to make it look like tile & then stained it to create this faux tile look. So fabulous!!
You can also see that Traci brought in all kinds of new decorative touches to the space with new throw pillows, a new rug, adorable little lanterns, and much, much more!!
PLEASE take the opportunity to visit Traci’s blog today to see even more beautiful photos of this space! She shares so many before & after shots & gives you a closer look at all the other details in this space! I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
