A New Bricked Walkway is HAPPENING!!

My lovely momma just gave us ALL these bricks! She's getting a pool put in so they had to remove her bricked courtyard and lucky us, we got the bricks!!


So, we hired some guys to remove all the disgusting busted up concrete and haul it away and this is what it looked like once it was removed:

They worked so fast I didn't even get a chance to take a before!!

We decided to continue with the herringbone pattern you can see above that is from the sidewalk.  I love herringbone, it's so classic! Although it is tricky to make sure it's centered properly so the bricks are on a 45 degree angle. 

Here's some during shots:


As you can see, we're almost done!! 


I can't wait to share with y'all the completed project!! It's looking so good!!
