Before I dive right into the show and tell portion, I want to extend a huge thanks to Linda at Calling it Home and House Beautiful for organizing this amazing event. We couldn’t have done it with out you! I would also like to thank Legrand for partnering with me on week five!Six weeks ago I set out to transform our backyard and patio into the space I always imagined. If you caught week one, you know we tackled the backyard in phases, but the original backyard looked like this, a complete train wreck.
It took us several years to tame the unruly yard and learn how we wanted to use the space. You can catch up on all of that with the paver patio, a new fence, side yard hardscaping, a new shed, new landscaping and a fire pit area. For this challenge we focused on all the pretty things and I can truly say it finally feels finished. And now for ALL the pictures!

This is the perfect spot for a nice summer day to simply relax. This area of the patio basically got all new everything including the sofas we built, pillows, side tables, plants, and accessories. I will link sources at the end of the post.
Cooking and Entertaining
When we added our paver patio we built in the grill and added an eating counter. This is the perfect spot for conversing with the chef, which in our house is Barry 🙂 So you can often find me sitting in one of those new stools with a glass of wine in hand while he is grilling up something delicious! We are currently trying to figure out how to make pizzas in the grill 😉 So if you have mastered this, please send me your secrets!
Extra space is always welcome when entertaining outside, so when a friend built me a buffet table a few years ago, I was ecstatic! I use it ALL the time.
Outdoor dining is my favorite during the summer time. I have been dying to use the new table we built, but Barry has been too afraid to mess it up before my photo shoot, haha! Along with the table I added new chairs that are not only stackable, but they don’t have any cushions to worry about putting away! I also added a battery powered chandelier and some new table accessories.
We live in Colorado and while summer days definitely get into the upper 90s, evenings are always much cooler. Perfect for sitting by the fire and roasting some marshmallows. Not a lot changed in this area of the yard, but I did add new side tables, pillows, and accessories.
One of my favorite additions to the backyard is our string lights. And while you can see them in some of the photos above, I felt like some night time shots were needed to get the full effect 😉
