Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
We have been working so much on our backyard space, and perfect timing since we are always home! We completed the space with this GIANT Checkers Game and I will be sharing the best outdoor games!
We are going to add a board underneath this checker board since our grass grows so quickly, but we have been playing with it non stop regardless!
These Polywood adirondack chairs are from Bed Bath & Beyond to! They fold up and if you haven’t heard about Polywood it’s the best ever – it will last a lifetime! They have the neatest story, each piece is made to order and made out of recycled milk jugs!
The kids play outside daily with these Rolly Checkers! We play as a family and on teams, but have learned that James is the best!
You can see here how BIG the pieces are! Have you ever played checkers this big?
I thought I knew how to play checkers, but I learned so much since we got these! The kids know how to play better than me! Did you know there is even “kings”in checkers?
I would love to have these stay here permanently, but its so amazing that they fold up in little squares so easy storage!
Here is a full view of our backyard space with all our favorite Bed Bath & Beyond finds! If you are looking for the sectional you can go HERE, for the firepit HERE, the planter HERE, Checker board HERE, Checkers HERE, and the Polywood chairs HERE.
Ms Daisy wanted to have a photoshoot, isn’t she so cute!
Here is a view of the other side of our backyard, I love how it all has come together. Hopefully you can be inspired by this space, and here are some more game ideas below!
