PATIO MAKEOVER MAY 2020

I live in a 424 square foot condo with only 50 square feet of usable patio space to use as my garden.  I new that it needed an overhaul, but was not sure about the direction I wanted to go in.  So when photowall reached out to me about doing a post collaboration, I was intrigued.  I looked at their website and found a print that drew me in and inspired the color palette for this makeover.

CAT ROOM MAKEOVER

When I moved into this condo I knew that I would not be in need of the pantry.  Rather then letting the space get wasted, I decided to turn it into a cat room.  The perfect place for the litter, food etc.  In this video I show you how I revamped it a bit.
