Deck Reveal 2018: Our House on The Hill

Welcome to our little oasis!  Last week, I shared a tour of our House on the Hill just before we moved in, and today I want to share our elevated deck, a.k.a. outside oasis.  We love the serenity, quiet view and country oasis our elevated deck offers.  To capitalize on that oasis, I have adapted it to fit a few of our needs, while sticking to a budget.  A very tight, budget.  You will discover during our reveal that most of the items we used to give it appeal and warm, cozy feelings are items we recently inherited, purchased second hand, received as gifts or had in our stash and cost us ZERO dollars.  How can you beat that?

During this reveal I will share how and why we created the space we have and share a few links to help you create your own.😀

I promise it was fairly simple and very inexpensive.

Let’s get started.  Shall we? Read more »

Zero Budget Scarecrow How-To
