Backyard Oasis- The Reveal


Since it is now Oct. 1 I figured I would go ahead and share our backyard makeover!;) Honestly I was waiting till I had everything on the porch picture perfect but that has not happened yet. 
Here is what our view looked like before we began the pool process. This was probably 3 and half years ago when the swing set was new. You can see more Before pics here.
This is our view today!
Sitting area off to the side. The Crepe Myrtle we planted is having a time trying to adjust. We have not lost hope yet though because it is still getting buds on it.


This area is the tanning ledge. It is not very deep at all and is where our little Savannah enjoys hanging out at when we are in the pool.

You can not see it but there is bench seating on this wall.
We decided on French Grey for our Pebble Sheen color and it was the perfect choice. 
The color of the water changes depending on which way the sun is hitting it. Here it looks like a deep blue.
This area is what was holding me back from sharing the reveal. I have decided that the new rug is just way too small and I prefer cushioned furniture here instead so come the spring this area will be made over. It is not very inspiring at this time but we love it and hang out in this space all the time.

This area needs some help as well. I am going to be making some shutters for the window. I may even swap furniture around and set this area up to have the fire pit instead.

We are immensely enjoying our new pool! If you have been debating over whether to get one or not I say go for it! We wish we would have done it a  few years back.

If you missed the pool progression here are the links so you can see exactly what went on and my inspiration.

  2. What a gorgeous pool! Love the color of the tile wall, decking and of course, the blue bottom of the pool. My parents had a house in Palm Desert with a pool and we enjoyed many weekends there with our daughters when they were young.

  7. Your pool area looks amazing! You'll get to use it a ton in this Texas heat too. :) I'm sure the crepe myrtle will be fine. One of mine took awhile to adjust too, but now it's doing great. Beautiful pics!

  16. Your pool is fabulous. I really miss ours, we had one at our last home and I loved it and practically lived in it. Really want one for this house, but such a tiny yard, not sure it is possible. I love your yard, fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  26. Your pool area is beautiful. You did a wonderful job planning it. The stone color is a great choice. Don['t worry about your porch- who cares! You got a pool, baby!!!

    We loved our pool when we lived in Florida. Here in the Midwest we would only have about 2-1/2 months when we could actually use it.

    Hope you are having a great week- xo Diana
