DIY OUTDOOR CURTAINS

DIY Outdoor Curtains / 7thhouseontheleft.com

Last week, we posted about our new carport turned patio. We’ve been working on this space for what seems like all summer – or even longer – and we’re beyond happy that it’s finished. One of our favorite features in our new covered patio are the outdoor curtains. They really make the outdoor living space feel a little more “indoor” and much less “carport”. We started this part of the project with a set of beigeΒ Merete curtain panelsΒ from Ikea. They…

THAT TIME WE TURNED OUR CARPORT INTO A COVERED PATIO

We still have a few projects to share the details about, but couldn’t wait any longer to show the photos we took right before I left for LA. Before we get to what the area looks like now, let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane and look at what it looked like before… Since we have ample driveway space behind the house for parking cars, we rarely parked in the carport simply because it made things feel more open and…

Obviously, the above photo was taken before the floor was painted, but this is the table we’re talking about. Since the table is so big and chunky (94 inches long) and it’s a huge wall (about 18 feet wide, including the door to the laundry room), we wanted something big to fill up the…

YET ANOTHER DIY SUCCULENT GARDEN

DIY Succulent Dish / 7thhouseontheleft.com

I started having a “thing” for succulents when I went to LA last year. After our vacation there earlier this year, I came home and put together a succulent terrarium (check out that post here). Well, lo and behold, it’s been seven months and I haven’t killed them. Aren’t ya’ll proud of me?! I’m celebrating my achievement with yet another succulent arrangement. This time around, I’m making one for the coming-together, soon-to-be-done covered patio. A few months ago, I found…
