Hi there friends! Today is the day, I am finally sharing my new outdoor privacy screen!!! It’s a nice blend of modern & rustic and it gives us a little more privacy from the road. We live on a corner lot across from the bay on a very small piece of property. So any additional coverage that makes it feel like a retreat away from the rest of the world is exactly what we need.
I decided to go with a stain rather than paint because I have a good amount of painted surfaces in this space. I also wanted to balance the warmer wood tones since I tend to gravitate towards driftwood gray.
My friends at Sherwin-Williams made it easy to select a color. They were extremely helpful when it came to choosing a product and color. For longevity purposes I went with SuperDeck, an semi-transparent deck stain.

My goal was to give the privacy screen a soft warmth without pulling out the orange hues.
You can see below there are a variety of colors to suit your preference. They also have samples of these to make the decision easier. You can choose a water based stain, like I did or an oil-based stain.
I am so thrilled with the additional privacy and how the stain compliments the flow of the space. Baja Beige was definitely the right choice.
In case you missed the reveal, this is the before….
And the after……
The primary wood tones in this outdoor space are driftwood grays and warm caramel. They look great with neutrals and pops of color, like plum and indigo.
This is the space all lit up with string lights, it gives such a cozy feeling, doesn’t it?
In case you were wondering, my garden is overflowing with mint in the front, not weeds. They say you should keep mint in pots, well this is why, it completely takes over! I am also growing oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil, beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, sage and strawberries.
As you can see we have a very small yard but we do make the most of the space.
We love spending time out here, it’s such a welcoming space. And the best part it didn’t cost much.
What do you think?

See the mint back there behind the table? It’s gone wild but it adds natural touch.
