We are really lucky here in SoCal to be able to outdoor entertain almost all year round. As we are wrapping up Holly's interior, I thought it was only right to continue to her exterior as well! Today I am partnering up with @The Home Depot and walking you through multiple ways on how to update your outdoor space. These ideas vary is different levels of "difficulty" but are all insanely easy at the end of the day if you get a little help from your friends for some! Thank you so much to my Home Depot family for making this special space for Holly a reality - it's now her favorite space to be xx.

  • As a guy who's always struggled to learn, although being in construction many years, this channel is very informative. I'll say this with more gratitude.: You've got a ton of subs and I see you've responded to so many comments. That is the biggest legit quality you possess IMO regards all this. But if you're paying someone to respond to comments, I will hunt you down and dress your dog up in very disgusting polka-dot lingerie.

  • I like the selection of the plants but, I think you should plant (repot) that plants with new soil giving them more space and nutrients in order to get better looks and happier plants and people.

  • What if you paint black the plastic pots and the terracota saucers... They will desappear a little bit in order to show off more the plants rather than the brown color of the plastic.

  • You could glue the terra cotta pots to the saucers and then just pop those plants in the plastic containers inside the terra cotta pot. That way if you need to water, fertilize, or replace a plant, etc you can easily pop the plant out.

  • Love! I use these- www.dollartree.com/round-plastic-coated-wire-baskets-with-handles/119126 on a railing where bluejays like to knock my terra cotta pots down on my tiny humans. Maybe they could work for your chandelier. The plastic pots fit them perfectly or you could use coconut coir for a more natural but still safe vibe.
