Update on our Catch all Corner

I wanted to give you an update on the progress that has been made on our catch all corner in the back yard.

This middle section of our outdoor room will be the focal point of the corner.    H combined an arched gate with an old door to make the second wall of our room.

Then he disassembled the screens that were in another corner of the yard and used them to make the sides and roof of the structure that you see in front of the three panels..

  You can see where the screens used to be in the photo below.   ( H planted a magnolia tree in the corner where the screens were).

Now all we have left to do is finish the third part of our will go on the left side of what we have already done.

We have come a long way baby!!!

H hung a $3 yard sale mirror on the door....

This church birdhouse was a Christmas gift to my mother from us years ago.   You have seen it on the front porch and more recently on the back yard deck.   H gave it a fresh coat of white paint yesterday and also my peacock.....he was multicolored before.

We plan to put a "open" door between the fence and the arched gate door.    Then,  I will make our outdoor room into a little sanctuary.....

We are going to spread out our blanket and have a picnic later this afternoon
