Eating outside is very important to my family, so we put in a new back patio. This is the old backyard and the beginning of the demo process.
Very nice! I like that table, too. Where did you get it?
IKEA – $100.
Of course, Ikea, the source of all that is affordable and good. The closest one is 250 miles away and I just read a story about how terrible their delivery is. Ah well. (I always think about how on 30 Rock Liz taunts her ex-boyfriend about how his new home, Cleveland, will never get an Ikea. Hits close to home.) But congrats on the patio – it really is lovely.
The Pittsburgh Ikea is only two hours from Cleveland. I’m thinking of going there to get a chair that converts into a bed. I turned the guest room into an office but we still do need a place for company and I think a sleeper sofa would crowd the room.
So easy that a 4 year old can open it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnlbK5z6YZ4
I was thinking of getting the nicer one that looks less like a folded up cot.
We got a daybed with a trundle for our office. My in-laws needed something with a proper mattress. It wasn’t cheap, but well-rested in-laws = a good thing.
If my in-laws want to be well-rested, they’re close enough to drive home.
will there be a photo of the house end to compare with the before photo?
Sure. coming up.
