It’s a charming conversation space now, but it started out as a sad dirt patch.  The transformation is a must-see!

I couldn’t find any Before-Before pictures.  This is as close as I could find.  When we first moved in, the space jetted out into the lawn, and was covered in weeds and ivy and had a small tree in the middle.  It just didn’t fit.  We cleared it out the best we could and it stayed like this for a year or so.

Hubby rounded out the space, which looks so much better!  I laid down some weed cover, and recyclable mulch.  The final layer was a bunch of white stones.

After a long time and not a lot of effort, this is the big reveal of our conversation space.  It’s a “thing” in our neighborhood to have Adirondack chairs in your front yard.  I would always sit on the front stoop to wait for Stepson to get home from school, so this is a much nicer spot to sit out front and watch the world go by.

When I priced Adirondack chairs, as in the real wood chairs, they START at $250 a piece.  Yikes!  So I sourced our neighborhood yard sales and found four chairs and two tables for $100.  TOTAL!

The only “problem” is that they are from the 1930’s and vintage and in need of MUCH love.  I’m like… oh they shouldn’t take long to restore.  Hubby just laughed.  Little did I know!  It took me three years, but we finally refurbished the Adirondack chairs. It was soooooo tedious.  But great fun to restore these vintage beauties.

So for now, the chairs are still showing much wear.
