I’ve done before and afters on the blog before.
Like the apartment, for example.
And this pretty, little bookcase.
So I thought it would be fitting to do an official before and after of the backyard. We’ve spent a lot of time out there this summer and expect to be out there this fall as much as possible.
Here is what we started with. I took these pictures while we were looking for an apartment in New York.
I dubbed this apartment “The Secret Garden” because of all the greenery. It felt like a little getaway.
Here is the view looking back at the apartment.
And here it is during move in. It was a lifesaver to have this area to throw the boxes.
And here it is in a live-able state after Scott went to town on the ivy. I think it looks so much bigger this way!
It’s not eligible for a magazine or anything, but we love it.
It’s given us the chance to grill,
and do projects.
Basically,I feel so grateful and blessed to have it!
