Back in May I asked you to advise me on making my courtyard a lovely entry to my home and a place to entertain (prudently). I gave you a whole rundown of the scenario and a bunch of before pics and you offered up fantastic suggestions that had me all excited to redecorate (or, umm, just actually decorate). Since then I’ve been diligently working away, parsing out my American Express Membership Rewards points to avoid spending cash and DIYing just about every detail. I’ll share all of the sources, a few DIYs, and a behind the scenes peek at my renovation projects. NOTHING got tossed, not that there was much there to begin with. Until then, here it is! We have already been enjoying it like it’s a new room in our home!
