I’m pretty sure my Jonathan is trying to make our home here so beautiful and cozy that I’ll never want to leave. πŸ˜πŸ’• He says he’s just trying to make it easier for me with good tools and a nice workspace. Well, he scored on this one, that’s for sure!!

It all started when he decided to update our privacy panels surrounding the camper and add a 30 ft shade structure in the back to protect the hot tub, cool the south wall of the camper, and provide a shaded gardening area for my potted plants.

As I’ve started transplanting my garden starts, they’ve been slowly taking over the walkway out front. I’m so glad they’re doing well but it was becoming challenging to give them the morning and evening watering they needed without being in direct sunlight. We had our awning extended over them, but the hours of morning and evening sun reaching these plants were getting longer and longer.

After the shade screen went up, I thought it was time to move my plants in. But wait, what’s happening in the back of that picture!? 🧐😯 Is that a work bench? Well, kind of. But it’s much better than that…it’s a gardeners dream! A potting bench!!πŸ˜πŸ’šπŸ‘πŸŒ±

I really surprised myself when I went to paint this. My plan was to stick with greys and greens. As I was painting the framework, Jonathan brought out his teal stain along with the white stain leftover from my desk and I immediately knew exactly what I would do. And so came all the beach vibes! The color provides a pop of cheer and really brightens up the shelves.

Oh and guess what! Most of this wood is recycled from this cedar fence panel that used to be the backdrop for my violin studio, and before that was one of the privacy panels back when we lived in our fifth wheel!!

It took me most of the morning two days to paint this. I was thankful the temperatures dropped below 100Β° for me to paint! Once all the painting was done and Jonathan finished assembling, I couldn’t wait to move in!

    That watering can was a fun find when we first got down here this year. Found it on sale at Tractor Supply. I thought it looked fun up on top like that. πŸ™‚
