You know when you see something on Pinterest where you’re like, “I must do that. Now.”? It’s that feeling between having a mini creative heart palpitation and “Why didn’t I think of thaaaat?!”.

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”.

Over the past few weeks, Greg and I have been on the lookout for wall art to go over our semi-DIY console table in the carport. 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…
