The hardest thing about working on the outside of the house is the lack of instant gratification. Also, writing about and blogging about backyard makeovers are SO BORING until the big reveal where you are like wow that looks incredible, can't wait to hang out there! I know because when I read other people's makeovers for their backyard it sounds SO dang boring and I just skip everything. And instead of boring you guys with thoughts on the process, how about pictures of pretty outdoor spaces instead? I won't be boring you with photos until there's major strides.Sunset Magazine is amazing isn't it? Nothing like the west.
