Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

before, after, makeover, porch

I’ve mentioned before how much I love rooms that feel like they’re an extension of the landscape, and today I found one that I am pretty excited about. I used to follow Young House Love back when Sherry and John were remodeling their first house, and I couldn’t wait to do that kind of stuff to my own house. Well, I kind of fell off the DIY weekend warrior bandwagon when I realized that I work on the weekends and when I do have a weekend off, it seems that I’m more of a weekend wanderer than a weekend warrior. But anyway back to the space…here is where they are with it now:

They ripped out the windows and ceiling and did a few other things as well, turning it into one huge lounge space. It looks like it would be a pretty great house to have a party at, don’t you think? I’m really digging it so far, and I love their vision behind this. Of course, it’s still a work in progress, but I think it already looks awesome as-is. Nice work, as usual, Sherry and John! –erin

Garden Umbrellas with a Twist

Sywawa has one of the most imaginative collections of garden umbrellas and bases I have seen. I love when a good design team puts their minds to re-imagining the mundane and transforms it to spectacular. This laundry inspired version is my favorite. I love the breeziness of the BREEZER, -“a new parasol concept which plays…

Before & After: A Shaded Hammock Retreat

    Sometimes I come across these great blogs that were only in existence for a short while before their owner decided to pick up and head out, and unfortunately, The Hesitant Gardener is one of them. But judging by the projects, these people have to be pretty busy, and there’s probably no way to maintain…
