This weekend I experienced a miracle. My patio became a reality. And I am THRILLED!!
A few weeks ago, Bonnie and a gaggle of kids were a huge help by digging out the grass in preparation for the patio. I had put a few pavers down and had an idea of what would eventually happen in that space, but the vision was blurry. My yard was still a disaster.
My yard is bordered by Manny’s trailer (remember him? Tanille’s father-in-law, and the recipient of their latest remodel). And while the inside has been mostly completed and looks amazing, the only part of the outside that was complete was the paint. And let me tell you a thing about trailers: They look even dumpier without the skirting.
So, on Saturday, Tanille, her hubby, James and I spent 8 hours painting and installing skirting on my yard’s side of the trailer, and completing the patio. The rest of the garden still needs some TLC, and when that is done I will post more pictures.

The gaps between the pavers will eventually fill in with ground cover. I’m thinking Creeping Thyme.
Check out my fancy new umbrella…. It’s retractable, and perfect for when I’m enjoying the fire pit.
So let me know if you want to come over for a glass of wine, because this patio is in business.
Oh, and, can you believe I built the entire thing for under $100??
