I had wanted to buy a tutu for my daughter's Halloween costume until I found this tutorial. It's really easy and takes a LOT of tulle! Mine took 75 yards...yes that YARDS. I think tutus are so cute! This tutu will be perfect for her cat costume.
Well the form boards came off today. You can see a few of them still lying around our yard...its been a long day. The pipes sticking up in the back are for electricity. The corner one will be for lighting up the gazebo and the right side will be for a built in BBQ. Please excuse my dogs, they insist on being in photos. This has been a long time in the making and we are still in the process phase.
It's too bad we didn't start this project before summer so we could enjoy our new patio already! Although buying patio furniture in October has paid off big time!
Here is our patio set, yet to be set up.
Here is our gazebo, you guessed it, still in the box. I've had a rug and lights for a year in waiting!! It's okay, little by little we will get it all set up. I need to do some bargain shopping for all the "extras." As soon as its all set up, I'll get a photo up.
You know when this truck shows up at my house, we mean business!!!
For the past 5 years, home improvement projects have been our lives!! This was the largest amount of space we've concreted in to date. I LOVE concrete. Its clean, no weeds to pull, no water to waste, and it looks nice when done right.
Here is a "before" photo of half the space we poured.
It sure goes in fast, its the finishing that takes the longest. So that "after" photo is still to come since its still drying.
I love these stairs, such a cute idea! Makes me wish I had stairs and no dogs. My dogs would for sure try to eat the pumpkins and the mice!!! Sarah has really great ideas on decorating, you must stop in and see!!!
I found this great tutorial over onDecor Chick!! It was so easy and looks great.
I love my table runner. I bought it from Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago. The pumpkins are from PBK too. They are actually candles, but are too cute to ever light. I bought both at their after Halloween sale for great deals!!
I'm a wife and mother to one little girl. I love being with my family and making crafts. All my reviews and suggestions are honest and unpaid. I started this blog to share my stories and finds. I hope to learn new things from you!
