Outdoor Spaces

I thought I’d share this pretty photo from my Mom’s secret garden….

…to remind you to swing by Kate’s blog if you have an outdoor space you’d like to share tomorrow!

As for the outdoor space we’re workin’ on at Kev’s Mom and Dad’s house, well, we aren’t quite finished yet…but we’re getting there! And I can’t wait to show you what we’re gonna do with this!

    I’ve used my chicken coop as a wall cabinet with a shelf inside and the door left open. I’ve also used it as a small sofa/entry/hall table in a narrow space with a piece of glass on top. Can’t wait to see your idea. They are such fun pieces to use!

    Love the secret garden! And now the chicken coop…lighting, table, shelves, cabinet…so many great choices! Can’t wait to see how you use it!

    Can’t wait to see what you do! We have a outdoor space that I know has great potential I just don’t have a vision yet. I’m in desperate need of ideas.

    Layla, I can not wait to see what you and Kevin do with that chicken coop. I have dragged one around the world(literally for my husband is in the Army)for 16 years not wanting to part with my fabulous $10.00 find. I knew one day I would figure out what to do with it. Well, I think that day might be fast approaching!!

    oh fun! I can’t wait to see what it is!
    I love your mom’s blue door in her secret garden so much!!!
    We’re just getting started on our suburban backyard and the thought of having such a private, gorgeous, secluded space really speaks to me. I think my kids would especially love it :) Like a little spot to hide away in-beautiful!

    What a pretty blue door. Secret garden indeed. Where does the blue door lead too? Do you trim the hanging plants or you just let it grow? I love how wild and bushy it is.

    I can’t wait what you’ll do with the wooden cage. I hope it will be a great DIY project.
