It's funny how things come full circle, isn't it? My very first blog and Instagram post were on May 19th, 2020, just one short year ago. I remembering trying to navigate {still trying, if I'm being completely honest with you} the world of blogging and Instagram. It was my little passion project a way to gain some control in a world that certainly seemed out of control at the same time doing something that I truly enjoyed, working on our home and writing.


As I started connecting with other home-related accounts on Instagram I began to see many of them sharing their Spring 2020 ORC room makeovers. Being new to the scene, I had absolutely no idea what the ORC was all about but I was intrigued and began my research.


I was completely enamored by it all and loved the concept of like-minded individuals sharing and supporting each other as they made their spaces into places they loved. At the same time completely intimidated and thought, maybe one day but definitely not anytime soon. The Fall ORC came and went and I watched from the sidelines, again. I don't know what came over me on February 12, 2021, but I all of a sudden had a moment of bravery {and probably a couple of glasses of wine} and registered for the 2021 Spring ORC!


So here I am, planning and prepping for our back patio makeover. I'll be documenting it on my blog weekly and on Instagram, I'd love to have you come along for the ride!

Current Space:

{uninviting, constantly dirty, and a hodgepodge of furniture}



The Vision:

{as with most things I tackle, there might be a few changes and additions along the way}



General Supplies Need:

  • Cement Stain {for floor}

  • Wood {for built in & plant wall}

  • Stone Venner {for built in}

  • Cementboard

  • Outdoor Furniture

  • Outdoor Curtains & Curtain Rod

  • Outdoor Rug

  • Light Fixture

  • Plants


We have a very busy weekend ahead of us, it's our 17th wedding anniversary, Mothers Day and two days of soccer. So we will be starting small, purchasing some of the supplies and fingers crossed staining the concrete this weekend.


You can follow along on my Instagram stories and my weekly blog posts. I will also be linking any materials or decor that I purchase on my LikeToKnowIt.
