Before & After: DIY Diva's Backyard Transformation

Before & After: DIY Diva's Backyard Transformation

Though we know lots of folks would envy the generously sized outdoor space pictured above, it was an undeniably sad space that didn't do justice to this lovely brick home. The pavers were buried in mud, the grass was struggling, and the concrete slab was too small and too disconnected from the rest of the yard to be suitable for entertaining.

Fortunately for everyone, DIY Diva had a vision for how to transform her backyard from drab to fab. The gentle curve and the white stone of the patio soften the straight lines of the rest of the house while the dark wood pergola breaks up the large expanse of brick. The new fence matches the pergola in color and the lattice design helps to tie the whole space together. Best of all, the billowy curtains transform this outdoor room into an intimate entertaining space.
