Courtyard Makeover – One Room Challenge Spring 2017 – Week 2

Hello and welcome back! In case you haven’t been following along, I am participating in the One Room Challenge by Calling it Home and this time around, I am doing a courtyard makeover.  We are so excited to be getting this space done, it has been a very uninviting entryway to our house.  But, that’s about to change!  See all the ugly before pics and my plan for this space here

Just a quick reminder of where we started.

So, this week we actually got quite a bit done, and even though it is still looking awful it does look a lot better.  We got the stone wall built, which was easier than I thought it would be, but still a ton of work.

I have an electrician coming to install the post lights and I found some dirt to fill in the are behind the wall. I also got the first few coats of patio paint on the slab that will be under the table.
