Yesterday I shared with you my hopes and dreams to have an awesome outdoor space. Today I say, TO DA! I went to Lowes and IKEA and moved some of my plants back outside for the season. I even planted some seeds. Let’s see if they actually germinate. Or if my dog eats the dirt. As she did earlier.
So here’s what I did.
New table to go with our AMAZINGLY COMFORTABLE folding chairs. Please note one of the aforementioned ever-reproducing spider ferns… if you want one I’d be happy to give you one.
I bought some hangy planters for iceberg lettuce (for the boyfriend, who will not eat any other type of salad greens) and some spinach (cuz that’s what I like).
And then I wanted something for the corner, something with layers / tiers. Not quite what I had in mind, but I couldn’t find the stairs-esque rolly thing on which to place planters, and this seemed like the right size for my tiny space (and it was $20).
Also, you should know, I built that with me own two hands. **please read that in the intended Scottish brogue. ME OWN TWO HANDS!
I know what you’re thinking. “You’re burly, marine boyfriend didn’t put it together for you?” Um. No. A) I am capable. There were limited parts and easy Swedish instructions. B) The big guy is sick. And watching Hook. (Bang-a-rang!) C) I wanted to build it with me own two hands.
So, outdoor space:
Now, I just need weather to be a tad warmer and to teach Bella not to eat my plants. Or the dirt.
