  12. Ruth P on March 24, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    make sure you put holes in bottom of the pots or else plants and trees will die from roots up sitting in water.

  13. jacecleo2 on March 24, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    Love love, I have been trying to redo my back yard but no money makes it challenging because even if one DIY projects also require spending money for supplies 😒, plus I can’t getting too fancy because my side of town gets super windy at times and that ruins any type of decor I may put up and in my patio.

  14. jay lov on March 24, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    If the curtains blow away too much some days just sew some weights or even fishing sinkers into the hem of them to weigh them down a lil for ya… thanks for the inspiration too… now for me to get up off the lounge n off YouTube n do it haha 😄

  15. Livingboldlynfierce on March 24, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    Girl you gotta put some drainage holes in those pots. I think the wine and glasses should have gone on the tray. Overall a great job. Keep it up.

  16. Greenish Katie Cleans on March 24, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    Very pretty! Just found your channel! I love DIYs!!😁💗🌸

  17. honorthelegend1 on March 24, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    You did a great job

  18. Libby Rodriguez on March 24, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    Omg who are you!!!! I LOVE THIS VIDEO! I am so inspired to re-do my backyard 😍

  19. Little Miss Stamper on March 24, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    Perfect! You can answer my question…. That rustoleum 2x spray paint…you used it on your candle lantern thingies (for lack of a technical term, lol) and they have some rust on them. Did it cover the rust and STAY covered.. Like no chipping etc? I realize its "rustoleum" but I could not find any info on whether THAT particular spray paint would cover rust. I did a patio makeover and my mailbox is so ugly and rusted I wanted to spray it…. But when I tried that years ago with another brand of paint it literally melted off the box and looked horrible, lol

  20. Nellie Diaz on March 24, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    I want to have a glass of wine there in the swing and enjoy the cozy spot you made so beautiful!
    Wonderful job!

  21. sissy moushka on March 24, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Well done!

  22. Betty Houk on March 24, 2019 at 7:55 pm

  25. D E on March 24, 2019 at 8:02 pm

  26. Vivian Cruz on March 24, 2019 at 8:03 pm

  27. Tempi Montgomery on March 24, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    That’s cute but it’s going to get dirty

  28. Home Body with Forlisa on March 24, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    I love how you took your time and did your outdoor space. I love outdoor space. I will be doing mine out door space too. I am new to your channel.

  29. Aqualew on March 24, 2019 at 8:05 pm

    Great outcome!
    What size is your patio area, if you don’t mind?

  30. Carol Benton on March 24, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Very nice.

  31. Ruthann Amarteifio on March 24, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Very pretty!
    Just don’t spray paint all over grass—-and, when transplanting trees, break up the root ball a little! 🙂

  34. Tracey Clarke on March 24, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Nice job, enjoyed watching, I’m inspired to make the string/balloon ornaments, thanks for sharing😀 little tip I would like to share is you may want to add some washers/weights into the hems of your curtains, it reduces ‘blow out’ from the wind

  35. Felix Agustin on March 24, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    Is call cleaning not makeover!

  36. Aqualew on March 24, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    Be sure to put some drainage holes in those pots for the plants or they’ll most certainly die.
    Thanks for sharing!

  37. GeTTo~PRiNCeSS on March 24, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Super cute & cozy 😊

  38. Jen MV on March 24, 2019 at 8:15 pm

  39. Island Girl on March 24, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Lovely! Add some holes to the flower pots for drainage.

  40. Lisa Whitney on March 24, 2019 at 8:17 pm

  41. Cindi Kallas on March 24, 2019 at 8:18 pm

  42. Blanca Cest la Vie on March 24, 2019 at 8:20 pm

  43. Linda Doucett on March 24, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    your plants will die in those pots… no drainage
