Outdoor Oasis: Before & After...

It seems that my husband has been nesting as of late...sweetly he insisted on doing an entire overhaul of our little balcony so I can have a small outdoor oasis to hang out in when our wee one decides to make an appearance (and before)...on a very strict budget (and I mean VERY strict), I have to say the space looks pretty amazing but most importantly it's incredibly inviting and comfortable...here are some before and after shots of the project...enjoy...

Before...
 After...
Welcome...
A creature in the midst...
 We added a new floor (from IKEA) which covered the horrible mish-mash original flooring...
 Our new floor didn't reach all the way to the end of our balcony so we used various plants to cover the gap...
 Serenity now...
 My very first watering can ~ I'm not kidding...
 Hanging plants are lovely and add extra colour to your space...

Loving our new space...

Sooo cute! I can't believe how much that floor changes the whole feel of the space. I'm so inspired!
