The time has come for the final reveal of this round of the One Room Challenge and I’m so excited to show you guys what we’ve done with this space. We’ve worked super hard over the past six weeks and we are so happy to have this courtyard makeover done. Well, almost done. I still have a couple of projects to do out here, but for now it is such a huge improvement over the way it was before. We are no longer embarrassed to have people come over. Let’s take a look…
In case you missed it, we are participating in the One Room Challenge from Calling it Home. I, along with my other blogger buddies, were challenged to update a room in six short weeks. This courtyard was in desperate need of a facelift. Here is where we started six weeks ago.

It was a overgrown mess. We didn’t really have any style or reason to sit out here. It was not only overgrown, but infested with bugs, snakes and lizards. The bushes were dead or brown most of the year and we even had a couple of bunnies living out here. As cute as those guys were, we needed to clean this space out. So, we opted for a more modern, almost maintenance free space. Without further ado..the courtyard reveal.
I think this is my husband’s favorite room so far.
I have to give a huge thank you to my sponsors for the project.
I love Wayfair.com. If you haven’t ordered from them, you have to check them out. We bought our living room couch set from Wayfair and we love it. They have tons of customer reviews, which to me, is way more telling than sitting on a piece for 5 min in a store. For this project, I picked these comfy, modern and totally affordable dining chairs for our table. They are the perfect look and style for this space. Check out all their patio options here.
We also worked with LampsPlus for these amazing lamp posts. They totally change the look of the space. I knew instantly when we started this space we needed some lamp posts and I love them. We did have our electrician run the wiring and you can read more about that here. He installed some sensors on them, so they come on at dusk and we love the added security of having some light on this space.
We also received this fountain from LampsPlus and love the added water sounds it adds. Plus, it fits in perfectly with this space.
Quikrete provided the concrete mix for our table top. I’ll have a tutorial up next Monday and can’t wait to show you how I made this table. And how I accidentally created this cracked effect that I ended up loving.
Next week I’ll have a full shopping guide post so you can see where I got all my products and I’ll also have tutorials on all the DIY projects for the space coming over the next few weeks.
