I love doing before and after shots. I really enjoy the magazine layouts where folks have had their homes remodeled and you see what they looked like "before and after".
We have recently moved into a much smaller space and since this place has a patio that is enclosed we decided to make an outdoor space that would double as extra living space during the 4 months or so that it is warm enough to languish outdoors. Below are some before shots with the corresponding (or close to it) views after we finished "doing them up". Let me know what you think.
|This is the view from the patio gate after we had cleaned up the debris left by the former occupant.|
|Same angle, over Fourth of July weekend.|
|Ho-Hum... nothing to see here|
|Some landscape lighting, a few plants and new patio furniture sure make a difference!|
|The first 2 "before" pictures were taken after the clean-up. This one was before the clean-up.|
|We spend a lot of time out here now. It kinda makes up for the smaller living space indoors.|
