Mother’s Day Outdoor Transformation | Live Video!

This was such a fun-daunting-exciting-scary makeover for me!

If you follow me socially (on Facebook or Instagram) or are a blog subscriber, you’ve probably heard about this project – in fact, you may even have already seen it!

Last weekend I was fortunate to have the opportunity to host a live video on Facebook centering around the easy transformation of an outdoor space for Mother’s Day.

Yes people…LIVE! See where the ‘fun-daunting-scary-exciting’ bit comes in now?

For someone who’s usually behind the camera this wasn’t something I approached lightly. Now that it’s over though, I’m so, so glad I gave it a go. Even if the whole experience feels like a total blur!

Facebook Live Outdoor Makeover

Thanks so much to everyone who followed along and offered their support!

Remember, if you’re looking to update your outdoor area, there is a great furniture guide available at Globo Surf.

    OMG! It’s you. You look gorgeous and explained everything so well. You should be proud! So nice to finally “meet” you and I totally get how anyone could do this. You did a great job.

    lol don’t worry about my daughter in her onesie. They were too cute. Good on you. Can I please ask wher those grey and brown pots at the front are from?

    • Thanks Caroleine. Those post can be found at Bunnings. They’re really cool because they look like gal though are actually light-weight resin.

    How brave you are to do this video! I would be shaking in my boots! Loved it but the sound was kind of fuzzy (for lack of a better descriptor). It was hard to understand what you were saying. Other than that, good for you!

    • Thanks Lin. Yes, it was a little windy. I think that may have impacted on the sound a bit.

    I do not do Facebook and wish I could see it! Nonetheless, I am proud of you. Bet it’s lovely! Always good to stretch ourselves out of our comfort zone! Brava!

    • Thanks so much. Maybe you could borrow someone else’s account to check out the video.

      It let me watch it without an account. Hope this helps

    A lovely relaxed but intimate area, it is very inspiring, well done! I wonder if the 3 domes on the pavers behind the hammock light up? If so where did you get them? I also love the faux topiary balls, what size are they and where did you buy them?

    Wonderful Project, i loved it But i’m sad i didn’t get to do it Hopefully next year. i am now taking on your How to make a bed head & foot project for my guest bedroom. I got a Facebook i think i liked your page but i really don’t know what i am doing, family is helping me thankfully. when is you next live video?

    • Thanks so much Leslie. Not sure when I’ll do another live video. This one was arranged through a professional PR agency who were representing Bunnings. Personally, I don’t have the equipment or know-how (yet)! It’s definitely something I’d like to do more of in the future though.

    Hi Kristine! I am far too late to view this video I know, but would love to be able to if possible. It said “content is not available…” Is it on Instagram or Facebook?
    PS. I’m a big fan :)

    • Hi Kathy
      It was on Facebook though has since been removed. There was an error (Facebook bug) with processing the live which meant it just kept running. So sorry.
