The Design Confidential Patio Rescue and Resurface Project

And the show must go on… you see…

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a poor little courtyard patio had seen her better day. Once she was loved and cherished so, but now her color had begun to go. Worn and tattered, not looking her best, this patio used to be heads above the rest.

In the winter her favorite little children do slip, when her surface gets wet since she has no more grip. This makes her upset when her kids just don't visit, it's her uneven concrete that seems to be the culprit. She waits and waits, much time has gone bye, she needs to act now, she just has to try. She decides to take these matters to heart, so she gathers her courage and she gets a head start. Ugly and useless she will be no more, she can't wait to show them what she has in store.

When last we left off she was all prepped and ready, she waited to move on till the weather was steady.
