before and after photos

Poor back patio was being a bit neglected by the Baker5.
Add an outdoor rug, new cushions on the chairs and LOTS o' flowers........

and you've got some homey, coziness going on.


Much much better, eh?



My {before} picture of the metal washtub......




My {after} pic. ..filled with flowers and little signs. "Eat, Drink and Be Merry."





{Before} pic...the lovely trashcan in all of its color. I actually liked the weathered blue and green, but unfortunately someone had spray painted the word trash on the back with bright orange spray paint. So, here's what I did......







Spray painted my little beauty black and stamped a fleur de lis on her. I love it!!













Love ya'll!!!!!!!!!

Katy,
You've done a wonderful job with your back patio. Way to go!

Thank you very much for following my journey in the hospital through Shannon's blog and for your sweet comment. Thank you especially for praying for me. It's amazing the power of prayer!

Your family is precious!

It looks beautiful, very inviting! You are so good, Momma!

Beverly is the decorator of our back porch. She likes to bring yard debris and chew it up for us to step on at a later date.

We say that we are embracing our Native American Heritage by having a rough-looking-lived-in back yard.

The yard looks great, it's just the porch that needs attention!
