Fast forward 4 weeks and the aroma of freshly cut walnut and poly still linger in our living room as I write this. Nothing fancy here, just a simple paint and build, striving for simplicity and clean lines. I've detailed everything out below, minus the exact dimensions since it's custom to our space and different for each house. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or leave a comment below!

Backyard Bliss

Now that the temps are warming up and the sun is setting later, Ian and I decided we wanted to spruce up our patio below the deck. Although we love the view of the sunset from the top of our deck, its full sun and pretty open. We thought having something below would be a little cozier and we could create a shaded place to eat a meal together. Cove also loves being outside, so this has been our little getaway when he gets fussy too. With the help of At Home, and a few things we had around the house, we worked…
