    I loved reading the story about your house and it is so fun to see how you fix it up and decorate it. It may have not being built in the way you like it but you have such a special touch in making it home. There is that clean simple yet sophisticated look that I love about everything thing. Your bedroom is so beautiful. I can only imagine curling up in that space with a good book or a movie on a cold winter evening. It is stunning and that bed from Birch Lane, I could not believe how inexpensive it is when I clicked over to the site. So glad you and your hubs (and kiddos) are happy with how it turned out. It will be fun to know more about the dresser and the rug. So beautiful!!ReplyCancel

    • susan - Thank you Jen! And I would seriously LOVE if you came over!xoxo
      Loved your makeover as well!ReplyCancel

  • Jenna Sue - My jaw is on the floor! I don’t even know where to start. I love the way you created separate areas with different ground covers and vertical dividers, and that stenciled concrete is genius! You have some serious talent, woman. I hope you don’t mind if I copy everything on a future house 😉ReplyCancel

  • Dianne G - I love your outdoor patio space! So cozy and inviting.
    I’m sure you will make lots of memories out there this summer.ReplyCancel

    • susan - Thank you so much! Your kinds means so much!ReplyCancel

  • angela - OMG. This is GORGEOUS!! I just came across your blog today and SO glad I did. I’m also in the Chicagoland area (Mokena to be exact, if you know where that is). I’m very very very VERY slowly updating my house (I feel like it won’t all REALLY start coming together until I can do new flooring. Kinda like a blank canvas). Whereabouts in the Chicagoland area are you, if you don’t mind saying?ReplyCancel

  • Danielle - Absolutely LOVE this space! Any chance your husband would be open to giving a tutorial on how he rigged the Ikea dividers? 🙂ReplyCancel

    • susan - Hi there! Yes, here they are! Like I said in the post my husband had to rig them so that they were taller so basically we had to buy two sets and discard the bottom portion. I hope this helps! Applaro wall panelReplyCancel

    • susan - Hi Danielle,

      This is Rob here taking over Susie Q’s account. What I did was buy long metal brackets that I screwed into the back of the side panels. I found the aluminum brackets that you may see used people’s closets to support the wire shelves worked really well b\c there were long enough (~8 ft), rigged, already had holes in them, and come in brown to match the wood. To stand up the panels I extended ~2 of the 8 feet passed the legs of the bottom panel and used them as stakes into the ground. Lastly, I connected the panels together and to a wooden beam divider that was installed by the landscapers who installed the limestone. For this step I used corner brackets that anyone at Home Depot can direct you to. If you end up putting these together I recommend using as small a screw as possible, just a lot of them, so the Ikea boards don’t splinter.


      • Hannah - Wow! Everything looks beautiful! Do you mind sharing how many screens you used in all? And did you put two screens on top of each other for additional height? ThanksReplyCancel

  • Taura - I love those IKEA patio dividers. I can’t find them on their website, do you by chance no the name of them?ReplyCancel

    • susan - Hi there! Yes, here they are! Like I said in the post my husband had to rig them so that they were taller so basically we had to buy two sets and discard the bottom portion. I hope this helps! Applaro wall panelReplyCancel

  • Ali - You are giving me so many ideas of what to do with our little slice of concrete in the back! I love your concrete planters. Where are they from?ReplyCancel

    • susan - Thank you, Ali! All of the concrete planters are actually from Homegoods!ReplyCancel

  • Jessica | Petal + Ply - The stenciled concrete looks amazing! I may have to use that idea. Plus you picked one of my favorite stencils. It turned out amazing and reminds me of the popular cement tile floors all over the internet right now. Where did you get the cute kiddie table and benches? It’s adorable.ReplyCancel

  • melissa newell - WOWZA That is beautiful… You have given me hope! We close on our new home in hours from this typing and i am overwhelemed as to where to begin…thanks for the inspiration! Beautiful job!ReplyCancel

    • susan - Thank you so much!! Congratulations on your new home, you’ve got this! Remember, baby steps! xxReplyCancel

  • JenWoodhouse.com - Wow, what a gorgeous transformation! And I LOVE that stencil – I used it for my patio last year! http://jenwoodhouse.com/stenciled-concrete-rug/

    Those dividers are a total game-changer! Beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Jaime Costiglio - Wowzers that is a beautiful transformation and a ton of work! So much time, energy and thought put into the space and it truly shows. The concrete slab is unrecognizable with that stencil. You should check out jenwoodhouse.com she did a similar stencil on her slab – great minds think alike!ReplyCancel

  • Bridget b. | 623designs - This is beautiful! What a transformation! Where do you store the items during those Chicago winters?ReplyCancel

    • susan - in our garage! 😉ReplyCancel

      • Sandi@TheVintage - Wow! I love every detail! As I was looking at all the beautiful furniture and accessories, I am wondering how they don’t all get ruined without being under a covered patio. I have a Pergola area that I am afraid to put anything of value under because of this. I have a country home with a wrap around porch that is covered, I love to decorate these areas. When it comes to the Pergola area, I am stumped.ReplyCancel

  • Sharon (in) Robe and slippers - Susan this backyard is incredible! Can’t wait for your next post to share the stenciling details of that concrete patio! As much fun as the holiday season has been, now that 2017 is here I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wait to get back outdoors. 🙂ReplyCancel
