We love our backyard, no question about it. It is a pretty decent size, it allows our boys to play hard and it allows us to entertain and grow fruits and veggies for our family.
THAT said . . .
Sometimes things out back get kind of, well, boring.
True, we will have lots of lavender and tomatoes bringing in the reds and purples of summer, and there will be fresh corn and plums, too, but we wanted some instant gratification and my husband decided to put together some frames for nature’s works of art.
The frames are made from redwood planks – we painted them using leftover spray paint and some mistints that cost $5/gallon.
I love looking outside the playroom/office window and seeing these bright pops of color!
