The truth is, as much as I pretty up the INSIDE of my house, I completely lack on the OUTSIDE. I'm just not good at decorating outdoor spaces. We'll get to that in a minute. Let's first start with the positive.
In our backyard we have the Mancave area. You can read more about that space here.
But the patio part of the Mancave area looks like this now.
After having lost way too many canopies due to the unpredictable Florida weather and winds, we've learned our lesson. Some kind of permanent roofing would be nice.
Leading up to the Mancave space is this area which needs, uh, somethin'!
And the dinning area of the space is where the outdoor farm table sits, half way re-painted.
My husband is always telling me to contact HGTV to come and re-do our outdoor spaces. Yeah, like if I have some kind of direct line to the guys at HGTV'D!!
Then the front of the house is somewhat sadder.
Our great neighbors helped out pretty it up once but then the plants got some kind of bugs and I've let it go since.
About the only cute thing in this space is the little boy in the swimsuit!
Then there's the matter of this tall boy that's halfway dead after lightning hit it. It needs to come down at some point... soon!
So, why am I even blogging about these ugly spaces? I blame Kate, of Centsational Girl, and her Outdoor Ideas linky party.
I'm hoping some of you can take a look and sunny note or e-mail some ideas my way. Heck, I'll put you up if you come down and get your ideas going in person! I can guarantee you, our nights at the Mancave are a blast! Any takers?!
