Look who came to my rescue this weekend!
Deb from Proper Prim and her sweetie Dennis!
Deb heard my distress call all the way from Canada that I sent out when I was trying to pull the outdoor kitchen project together. She came to the rescue, bringing reinforcements with her. Isn’t she the best?
Actually, I think she thought she was just going to check out the new bar.
But I had other plans for her.
She took one look at this mess…..
And waved her magic wand (actually it was a very well stocked tool bag)
And turned it to this inviting space, just using what I had on hand.
And this Plain Jane shed that is such an eyesore…
Became this lovely display.
No surface went undecorated, no way!
And even when I challenged her with this horrible lamp….
Why, she just laughed and waved her magic bag and Voila!
Remember this ugly side of the garage that faces the outdoor kitchen? Mike was able to get some pea gravel placed, but it was really bare looking.
And here’s my pitiful attempt to hang something, anything on the garage wall.
Well Deb came and took what I had and once again,
She totally took a plain chalkboard painted window and prettied it up.
Even the wall fountain got some of her special treatment!
Then she moved on to my bare wall behind the raised vegetable planter,
And made it look like this!
I had painted that old sunburst black last year and never did anything with it, just left it laying around in the garage.
Isn’t that precious?
A few touches on the bar to make it more festive for the upcoming 4th of July party.
And even Dennis got into the act, helping Mike get the grill operating and the wall fountain hung up.
This is Mike raising a toast to Dennis.
drunk happy he is?
And I know in my heart Deb is a true friend. One of these…..
We will miss you!
