backyard makeover. wish list.

Our backyard. When we moved in over a year ago we knew we wanted to redo the backyard, but it was put on the {someday} list. The time has come and we have officially started to turn it into something magnificent.

No big reveal of what it looks like or how far along we have come. Instead, a glimpse into my backyard wish list. Yes, it is a wish list and we will see how much of it I can replicate. It will mean some flea market hunts and a little creative thinking on my end. But the truth is, that’s my favorite type of shopping anyways.

Here’s the skinny on our backyard and wishes…

  • we decided to take the plunge and put in a pool. so excited! {the pool part is just about done}
  • we wanted to create an outdoor living space that we can use a majority of the year, couches are a must.
  • not a lot of yard is left, so we need to maximize what is left.
  • i am great at containers, horrible at anything affixed to the ground. {easy maintenance is key.}
  • did you know i love anything that replicate a french chateau? that’s my vision.

With that said, here is my french-inspired backyard redo wish list.  Are you as smitten with it as me?
