  1. I am picturing you – octopus like – creating that wall all by your lonesome! Maybe, in a few years, your body will evolve and sprout a couple of more much needed limbs!

    I’ll never look at an old garage door the same way again! I never knew I needed a garage door wall until now!

    And that changing table – who would have thought it once had all kinds of butts sitting on it over the years!

    The joint compound on the pots – genius!!! They look amazing.

    So basically, I am in love with everything (as usual)! It was worth the wait and so glad you linked to our party! And I am pinning quite a few of these fabulous ideas.

  2. okay – WOW!!! i am totally coming over for an outdoor dinner – i’ll bring dinner! 🙂 🙂 looks amazing. i am LOVING the green/teal and the rust red colors you used — and that outdoor table space is amazing. i am now inspired to NOT buy patio furniture and to just “redoux” something!

  3. Karen! You did it again!
    Really amazing-that changing table rocks. I have our old changing table as a buffet in my dining room-versatile piece of furniture, huh?!

    I think I need to try your CeCe Caldwell paint. That color is amazing.

    Hey~Hey Miss K 😉

    LOVING that aqua piece that is so fun! The whole look of it changed, it has a completely different vibe then the before picture. You distressed it perfectly 😉

    I can smell that Jasmine! YUM! My hubs fav. I planted one…. but the deer like it really well.

  5. you are so stinking cool! some day I am going to knock on your door and make you make me a cocktail and go sit in your junk outdoor room. Love!

  6. Karen, We are on the same page today! Love, love, love those joint compound pots and your wall of shutters! So cool…..what a fun place to hang out and smell the roses!

    I’m working on turning the insides of my old piano into a garden element….you’ve got my wheels turning on those shutters!

  7. Brenda says:

    I love everything- especially the changing table. Oh- and that wall! Seriously!
    C’est magnifique!

  8. nova c. says:

    beautifully creative!!!

  9. Suffering Husband says:

    Was not a fan of the wall of doors at first, but grows on you.
    Picture actually does not do it justice- works because of how it partitions
    the patio off and the wind break is a huge benefit. Whether the stodgy neighbors
    agree is a different story!

  10. I’m inviting myself over for a picnic in your backyard. Seriously! It looks perfect for entertaining and relaxing!

  11. just re-reading your comments…. I’m loving that you’ve been called stinking cool. That’s one serious complement! lol

  12. Rosemary says:

    Your outdoor room is so cute and charming. Love all your creative touches.

  13. cassie says:

    it looks AMAZING!!! i am on the hunt for a big long farm table to use on our porch…. wish me luck! i love the space you have created!

  14. Everything you did looks AAAAMazing!! Great job!! Great Inspiration! Thanks so much for sharing,
    you’re giving me some great ideas…Love your site so perfect!!
    I hope you have a wonderful week end planned where you can enjoy all the fruit of your labor!!
    Hugs, ~Theresa

  15. OOOH love that wall of old closet doors

  16. oh what fun

    creating a little privacy
    and a whole lotta style
    for your backyard space

    and why is everyone else
    already getting blooms on their hydrangeas
    but me?


    thanks for sharing
    at Fridays Unfolded!


  17. love your use of the garage doors for your fence – genius idea…and good for you for doing it all on your own!

  18. Wow…what a great space…so many great ideas out there 🙂 Laurel

  19. Catherine says:

    Looks like a great place to relax!
    I love the pots–thanks for the info on how to do it too!

    LOVE your wall of Jasmine! I have one growing on the front of our house now for about 5 years and ahhh like you said the smell is wonderful when you walk by. Great pieces you painted, you busy little bee! Have a great weekend.

  21. What a great Redoux! I love that the changing table is now a server. Looks as though it was always meant to be! Great job!

  22. It is a gorgeous oasis! I adore the space you have created it is magical and unique. I hope to have some sunshine and jasmine to share with you soon!

  23. That’s it, I’m on my way over to hang out in your backyard. I’m going to see if I can jump high enough to make it over your wall – lol!

  24. Pat says:

    Hi– came over from FJI SNS #136

    Love your fully repurposed wall of shutters and furniture! I just love the whole outdoor room you created. That walk way is stunning! Is it stone or repurposed concrete? Just wondering, it is hard to tell. I’ve done that before myself…made a walk of repurposed concrete….;)

    I love the serving table too, very clever use of a changing table! Enjoy your outdoor room!

  25. That project is just too crazy cool! Love that its supported by (and hiding …) the trampoline (which is not at all eclectically chic) …

    Oh, and I’ve pinned it!

    … so happy you shared with us all at the Great Outdoors llink party!



  26. hahaha, I love that you attached it to the trampoline. This came out so, so awesome!! Thank you so much for linking up to our party!

  27. Stacey says:

    That is my kind of outdoor living space! Love it all – the colors, the funkiness! I want it!!
    Thanks for linking up!

    That is so amazing! I love everything abut this post!! I’m bookmarking it for the tips in it – love those terra cotta pots 🙂 And the glove idea for outdoor polyurethane? I am SO remembering that one! Saw you featured a couple places – Yay for you!!

  29. This is FABULOUS! Featuring you tomorrow! XO, Aimee

  30. Gwen says:

    FAN-TAZ-MA-LISTIC!!! I’m so glad to hear the spray Poly works… I have a can for my porch swing!

    It’s amazing GTC… and thanks for the tip about the joint compound. I have an UGLY planter that I just haven’t known what to do with!

  31. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. says:

    I hope I don’t have to pick a favorite part, because basically I love it all! What a great spot for a picnic! And I didn’t even know they made a spray outdoor poly, but I’m going to try your trick on my potting bench!

  32. Bliss says:

    Baby changer to outdoor server extraordinaire. Awesome!


  33. Linda says:

    What a beautiful piece! Came here from Roadkill Rescue to find out how you applied the poly. Going to give it a try on a piece I’d like to use outside. Thanks!

  34. Beth says:

    If I have a wood piece I want to put outside, all I have to do is apply poly?

  35. Thomas says:

    Very interesting and different remake.

  36. I want to come and have tea with you in this space!

  37. Stephanie says:

    I love your outdoor table. Did you make the bench? If so do you have a tutorial for that?

  39. kim says:

    OK, I’m a little slow tonight… you just slather joint compound randomly on the pots, or cover the entire pot and then paint them. I kinda understand as the joint compound ‘ages’ it will fall off leaving the original pot to show, right?
    I just love receiving your posts via email, so much eye candy and lots of sweet tips and ideas! 🙂

  40. Shelly says:

    Love the Privacy screen!! We have been looking for ideas to block the neighbors. Good Idea

      Thank you so much Shelly! I actually have to put them back up this year!! They fell over with a windstorm, but I love that it creates an outdoor room.
