Alfresco Ideas + Alma Help
May 20, 2011
Wow, thanks everyone for linking up your amazing projects at the ‘Outdoor Ideas’ party, so much inspiration to be seen in over 250 links! A few caught my eye and I wanted to share.
I have concrete on the brain right now as I scratch my head wondering what to do with ours. I love this faux bois-ish look on Rebecca’s new patio, so now I want a wood plank stamped surface too.
Painted turquoise planting beds? Heart!
I love Jenny’s porch pillow covers, she has amazing taste in fabric. *wink*
Check out what Shannon from Anythingology snagged at her local Habitat ReStore: a $1,600 Arteriors Ironwood fixture for $40 bucks. Holy guacamole, it pays to pop into your local ReStore with such frequency as she did. Wow.
There are over 250 not-to-miss links to browse for inspiration, such amazing creativity and beauty in these outdoor spaces from planting thyme between your cobblestones to building a chicken coop. Thanks again everyone for linking up your projects!
No giveaway this weekend folks, instead instead I’m hoping you’ll give something to our Alma Project instead.

Speaking of outdoor improvements, the mister and I are going to attempt progress on the patio this weekend, I have a feeling I will have an achy back and sore knees come Monday. The trials and tribulations of home improvement, right? What are your weekend plans?
Oh, before I forget, the following winner of the $250 Lowe’s Gift Card is: #881: Summer T who wrote:
“I would use this gift card for either a new rug for my dinette or towards a new gazebo!”
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend !
