How is your week going? I can't believe how quickly this summer is flying by! Next week will be August! I really do love summer, I just wish that the days would go a bit slower!
You may have seen my faux stone patio in past posts. You can read my original post, and how I turned an ugly concrete slab into a pretty painted patio here.
I first transformed it several years ago, and thanks to the elements, it was fading and needed to be redone.
So this spring when we were busy sprucing up our home and yard in order to get it ready to put on the market, I thought it would be the perfect time for a touch up.
This part of our yard is my very favorite. We had the retaining wall and put in several years ago.
Oh, we also repainted the wood arbor this spring too. Now that was a tedious job!
I originally was planning on just touching up my patio here and there, but once I got started, there just was no stopping me! So, over the course of two days, I ended up repainted pretty much the entire thing. Back breaking, yes. But I was just having too much fun!
The best part? I had all of the paint and the concrete sealer on hand, so it didn't cost my anything but time!!
Gotta love that!
I must say that I am really pleased how it turned out!
My hostas are in their glory, and are so pretty. Well, except for the ones that the deer decided to munch on!
The back and sides of our yard are surrounded by woods. I love all of the privacy, and watching the wildlife and birds we get as visitors.
Here is a close up of my "stones".
It was a really fun project!
In a few days, I'll be sharing photos of what's blooming in other parts of the yard.
Thanks for visiting!
