I’m doing it again!! I’ve decided at the very last minute, as in today, to participate in the One Room Challenge Spring 2018 edition hosted my Linda of Calling it Home. I have completed three spaces for the One Room Challenge over the past few years. It can get a little stressful with deadlines but it is also fun and a great way to get things accomplished.
If you found me through the ORC, welcome! I’m Sonya and I’ve been decorating, designing and DIYing for many years and sharing about it since 2013 right here on the blog. Learn more about why I do all of this here.
My past ONE ROOM CHALLENGE spaces:
- Shed Makeover (from a cluttered mess to LOVE IT)
- Affordable Living Room Makeover
- Kitchen Makeover (including black cabinets)
This year I decided to step outside for an outdoor space makeover. Our deck, patio and backyard will be a huge challenge but I need to get it done. Graduation party looming late May so I should have this makeover completed just in time.
There is so much potential here. I do not have anything planned out yet but I do know what needs to be done.
Projects that I want to accomplish:
- Paint/Stain fence
- Stain Deck (am I crazy??)
- Paint Glider
- Deck Furniture
- Patio Furniture
- Benches for Table
- Built in server table by Smoker
- Maybe do a dry brush treatment to Farm Table
- Potted Plants
- Clean Windows and Door
- Spread pine needles
Now that I have that list all typed out it seems scary. Here is the deal, I will do what I can, as affordable as I can, in the time I can. I’m not going to pressure myself to live up to a standard that isn’t me. I can’t wait to have you follow along with me. Be sure you follow me on Instagram because I will be adding lots of stories there.
Let’s check out the deck, patio and backyard as it looks currently. Like, really right now. I just took these photos.
The fence and farm tables are both built by Ray. The fence was done last summer and the tables about a year and a half. Still need seating. I love hosting crowds so the tables are an absolute blessing. You can see we have a great starting point but things need to look better.
Be sure to join me here each Wednesday as I share updates on the entire process.
OH, one last thing…say a little prayer for me. Ray (my awesome husband, project doer extraordinaire) will find out about this when you do as he reads this post. LOL
