Total Destruction With Some Inspiration Thrown In

I tend to think of home projects in stages.  There's the planning/dreaming stage - where you gather all of your inspiration pictures together and start to plan it out.  Then there's the de-construction stage where the notsogreat parts are destroyed so that you can build said dream.  

This is where we are.  Ground zero for the pool.

Heavy machinery sitting in yard, pavers pulled up and stacked to the side, random yard furniture shoved to the side...and a nerf machine gun.  Because i might have to get serious with some of the men here.  It's a justincase item.  Oh and I see my Potter Barn bath mat under the nerf gun.  At least it's stylin.

See this?  I have some plans for this old thing.

We're putting in an outdoor shower that is solar powered for warm water...and i'm using this old gate for the shower door.  I'm thinking a washed out turquoise color maybe...i love this...i almost bought that bell yesterday.

Maybe less english garden, more coastal looking...with some dune grass planted alongside.

 Here's to dreams that come true...happy Sunday!


  1. Oh my goodness Sheri! How awesome is that going to be! It seems like with home improvement it is the "storm before the calm" instead of the "calm before the storm" huh? :-)

  2. Sheri,
    How fun is having a pool going to be! Sometimes it has to get worse before it gets better but it will be so worth it! I'm a pool girl all the way! Love that gate, it would look great with a blue wash. Can't wait to see the end results!

  3. Wow girl, you have your hands full! But so exciting! Miss you...
