Are you ready for part one of my patio makeover? Do you remember what it looked like in my introduction to Melodramaville? Let me refresh your memory.
First we painted the floor a light gray because the orange color that was there before was peeling, was reflecting an ugly muddy orange color cast onto our interior white walls, and just generally didn’t fit in with my ideal vibe. I ended up painting the cinderblock as well for the same reasons.
But all of that and it still looked bad. I needed to find a solution to the industrial looking metal fence extender. I rent, so everything I do has to be put back to its original condition upon my leaving. Taking down the extension and replacing with something else wasn’t an option. Paint can be repainted, but this wasn’t negotiable.
That’s when I found these faux boxwood hedges from Natrahedge on Amazon!
They’re 20×20 inch faux boxwood panels that link together easily to cover all kinds of fences and walls. It was so easy to install and have been holding up well for months now, even in 120+ degree weather.
I also laid some realistic looking artificial grass down because I couldn’t keep grass alive or tidy in these areas. My dogs love it and looks great! Better than over grown or dead grass for sure.
And there it is! Part one of the patio makeover. Now I need to find furniture and more plants. Stay tuned!
