Our Alfresco Make-Over :: Taubmans Endure Paint Challenge

It was never that inviting or anything special to look at. The huge wall of yellow brick left me very uninspired and Daniel and I literally just stuck 1/3rd of an old bamboo Japanese screen on there above the daybed in an attempt to ‘pretty’ up our outside area. Somewhere along the lines I added some string lights and we called it done.
