Can you see the difference? You see that green stuff? Its grass!
After about a month of living with a dirt backyard after the straw and netting blew away they finally came and put in the grass yesterday. It is so nice to finally have a lawn. The dogs, of course, ran out to break it in immediately. That was nice of them, eh? After I got that cleaned up I let Snuggle Bug go outside to check things out. I’m ashamed to say this is her first lawn. At our old house we never could seem to get the grass to grow and it was so gross out back that we never let her play out there. But not anymore!
So now comes the fun part when we turn it into our own backyard oasis. I’ve been scanning craigslist daily for patio furniture I can rehab and I’m hoping to find a little swing set for snuggle bug. Then again there is a park literally across the street so we may look for something else. I don’t know yet. I just want to be able to finally enjoy our outdoor space for once. I keep reading blogs where people have taken the crappiest looking stuff and turned it into something really amazing. I want to try that myself! Any tips from the rehabbers on what to look for in furniture or rehab projects? I’d love to make some fun one of a kind stuff outside of the small craft projects I already do.
