My window frames will be a major player in making my small backyard look more spacious, I actually got this idea from watching my mom decorate her clients’ homes (home decor inspiration).
I will be using some old window frames to give the illusion of a larger space. | home decor inspiration.
I know that for many of us, space is a never-ending issue and when the weather gets warmer, More
After I did that I wanted to make a stone path in front of the fence that would be illuminated by some rope lighting (cool idea huh!), I got the stones from a home depot store as well as the rope lights and simply cordoned off a certain area in front of the fence. It was starting to look like people cared about their backyard again (smile). Next, I opted for some tiki torches, because why not? We’re outside we want to keep the bugs away and it was to make some citronella torches using some old wine bottles we had laying around. The first thing I did was pour the citronella oil into the bottles and wrap some electrical tape around the metal coupling so that it will be nice and snug in the opening of the bottle, next we will take a long wick and insert it through the coupling and into the bottle with the citronella oil. For a more rustic feel, I wrapped the widest part of the bottles with some rope and I thought it looked good and gave added more life to the decor. Finally, I brought out my table and chairs and put my feet up because let me tell you how much like Hawaii it looked (not as good, but close!). Maddy and I hope you enjoyed this project with us and we wish you guys all the best when you tackle your own backyard makeovers.
