Antiqued mirror for cabinet... you can get that mirror from any local glass company... it is common stock. It cost at total of $400 for the glass and to have them cut and install the glass into the openings.

I too have a small backyard and I think I can use some of the tips mentioned in the ideabook. But I think you have made use of too much of hardscaping which needs much time and efforts. Anyways the ideas were great. I would love to incorporate at mine.

Everlasting Blooms is local to me, too! I love their fairy gardens and everything else they sell. What a fun place to shop, and it's fun to know we live in the same area. ;)

Michelle Portesi I couldn't agree with you more! Construction IS a highly specialized field. There are MANY tradesmen that are VERY specialized in what they do, and those who are not, you can clearly see through their quality (or lack thereof) of craftsmanship. Just because a tradesman makes his job look easy, doesn't mean it actually is. Remember, most have many years of experience in their fields. My husband specializes in rails and staircases, with majority of his work focusing on curved rails/solid treads, and hand carving. Curved and angled railings often have parts that that have to be hand-carved (this comes as a big block that has to be hand-carved to fit the rail and the profile). Bending a rail is a science all on its own. You have to know exactly how much each type of wood has to be over-bent in order for it to snap back to align with the stairs (bad alignment means the balusters will not be centered on the hand rail and stairs when installed, and potentially thousands of dollars in material and labor will get trashed). Each material has its own strength, density, and hardness. Knowing how each material will behave when it is bent comes with experience. It is not something you can look up in a DIY handbook and attempt on your own.

@mylilremodelproject - That is a GORGEOUS staircase. And it's one I wouldn't have attempted to design construction wise myself. That's why God created architects! Or even better, the craftsmen who specialize in building staircases. Having truly knowledgeable and skilled tradesmen are invaluable to construction companies, designers and homeowners alike. I have certainly relied on a master staircase builder on a few projects.
