DECK + BACKYARD TOUR 🌿 Outdoor DIY + Decor Challenge

DECK + BACKYARD TOUR 🌿 Outdoor DIY + Decor Challenge

One of the biggest selling points for us in this new home was the amazing property and nice big deck. Although it could use a little TLC, the deck has been so wonderful for our kiddos as well as entertaining family and friends.

    I love the deck and how you have arranged everything, and the back yard is beautiful. Have a blessed weekend.

  2. Janet Cromer on May 22, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    It all looks so welcoming. We all need to spruce up spaces, no reason not to enjoy in the meantime… certainly do score some scores!! You have an eye and talent rolled into one.

  3. Jessica Zaborski on May 22, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    I love that you were able to pull this together without spending a lot of money.Well done. P.S. miss the vlogs πŸ˜‰

    What a great space! I’m sure you will enjoy hours of relaxing and fellowshipping out there this summer and in the years to come.

  5. Kathleen Ross on May 22, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    Wow, your deck and backyard are gorgeous and I love how you got most everything for free or pennies.Β  So creative.

  6. Patty C on May 22, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    Just wondering do you store the toys in your sunroom when not being used or do you cover them to protect from rain. The chalk would be ruined in that bucket and bugs or mosquitoes would love to gather in with the balls etc.?

  7. Random Bites of a Sweet Life on May 22, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    The space on your deck is great and your yard is lovely. Everything looks very nice together.

  8. Sarah Vanderkooy on May 22, 2019 at 10:04 pm

    Your deck is so big, what a great space to enjoy the summer. Love that you got all your furniture for a steal, thanks for sharing.

  9. Mandy in the Making on May 22, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    It looks so good out there! I’m jealous of all the awesome finds you score on the side of the road! I’ve never seen anything out by the road where we live. Ever! Maybe that’s a northern thing??? (I’m in SC) So cool though!!!

  10. Stephanie S on May 22, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    You must have some nice roads. All those great finds!

  11. Daretta Black on May 22, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Everything looks so pretty and very welcoming❀️……πŸ’žπŸ˜Š

    Very beautiful

  15. Tanya Perrin on May 22, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    What a beautiful back yard space. There is no way I could leave chaulk outside…here in Central Florida we get rain almost every afternoon… A word on the little plastic house- be sure to check it frequently for "critters.." Ours was a favorite for mutant large spiders (shivers), snakes and the occasional "lost" package. (Just in case your mail guy marks it as delivered ‘inside of house’ you will know what it means lol.

  16. Sophisticated Momma on May 22, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Hi Hilary your back yard space is large great for entertaining. You have some nice pieces of garden furniture…I like the wicker sofas a nice lick of Colourful paint would be great on them and some lime green cushions to match your umbrellas. Nice πŸ‘

  17. Valerie Switzer on May 22, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Huge space! Lovely green umbrellas. So nice. πŸ˜˜πŸ‘

  18. Lydia Senn on May 22, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    Side of the road finds are the BEST!

  19. Rj's Home on May 22, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    I want to live in your neck of the woods… I never see things on the side of the road! πŸ˜ͺ

  24. Alicia Una Ryan on May 22, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    Something so relaxing about hanging out in a total green zone that y ou share with Old McDonald’s Farm!! Staying within your budget rather than chasing magazine worthy decor also helps too!! By the way, your budget results in an awesome living style!

  27. Susan Velez on May 22, 2019 at 10:30 pm

  29. JC on May 22, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    Why do you need multiple patio sets on the deck?

  30. Jennifer Dahlke on May 22, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    It looks absolutely amazing

  31. Lindsey Domer on May 22, 2019 at 10:33 pm

  34. Kellie Hatley on May 22, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    I love that you’re enjoying and embracing your space, even though it isn’t exactly as you want it to be! We’ve all seen you work wonders in your home and know you’ll do the same outside. It looks like a wonderful family space already!

  35. Davee Kilian on May 22, 2019 at 10:38 pm

    I love how much you thrifted and upcycled different items to use on your deck! What a cute set up you have.

  36. Daniella Goracci at Home on May 22, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Wow! How lovely! You guys are so fortunate to have such a big land! Here in the Netherlands πŸ‡³πŸ‡± we would pay a fortune for some land as this big! Congratulations, enjoy it! You did a good job with all the findsπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

  37. Dr Dray on May 22, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    I can’t believe you got those awesome umbrellas on the side of the road! What a find πŸ‘πŸ»

  38. Creative Homescaping on May 22, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Your yard is so big! We have been in our home for almost 24 years and are still working on renovating it! So, keep plugging away! I always like to see real homes and not just those that look like they came out of a magazine.

  39. Gulfcoastsunset on May 22, 2019 at 10:41 pm

    Such a beautiful piece of property you have Hilary!! I LOVE how you see farm animals from your deck! What an awesome sized deck, I’ll be waiting for the freshly painted deck video, yet it was so nice to still see it before and your so right about just enjoying the NOW! :))

  40. Annette Morris on May 22, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    Wow 😊Such a large outdoor space

    Love your deck it’s beautiful! I love how you put everything on it in its right place. Great video as always.

  45. Angela's Hangout on May 22, 2019 at 10:50 pm

    So pretty! Quite a transformation. How cute you live next to a farm =) I would be playing with the cows all the time too! Loving the green umbrellas and what a beautiful green yard. WOW!

  46. Mary Jo Dollman on May 22, 2019 at 10:51 pm

    Back when my kids were little (long time ago) and I found a used Little Tykes playhouse, toy, etc, I could contact Little Tykes and they would send new stickers. A good cleaning and new stickers often made the toy look like new. As I said, it’s been a couple of decades since I did this, but it’s possible the company still does this. Definitely worth checking into if you come across the products free or thrifted.

  47. Shesacamper 1 on May 22, 2019 at 10:51 pm

    Hi Hilary. Love your outdoor space. So inviting!

  48. Over 50 Mommy Life on May 22, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    Hilary, your backyard looks like a relaxing and fun space. Thanks for sharing!

  49. neweverymorning Mercy on May 22, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    You barely notice that it could use paint job because it truly is a great space, such a nice size and you’ve really made the most of it with all your gathered pieces. Those bee pillows are adorable. And what a lovely, peaceful view you have on the daily!

  50. Farah Summer on May 22, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    Love that you use what you have! And it ends up working out perfectly.
