For those of you who read my posts regularly, you will know that the last few weeks (months!) I have been crafting for my deck. I am so happy now to finally reveal my revamped deck to ya’ll!
We’ll start out today with some BEFORE images!
May 18th, the empty deck, cleaned and ready to decorate!
(All photos in this post are clickable, if you want to zoom in on the details!)
The flooring needs a new coat, but I postponed that until next year!
You might not believe this, but the last few years I have not used my deck much… due to several factors: there is no shelter from the wind when it comes from the south (and it often does), there is no shelter from the hot sun when it is actually out, my garden furniture were getting so, so gross, and perhaps the most important reason: the big window on the corner of my deck is the neighbor’s tv-room, so really no privacy.
I had considered placing a big plant in that corner, or even building a permanent wall, but then my sister said: why not get a canopy? It turned out to be the perfect solution!
So here are the girls and I building the canopy:
And here are the old garden furniture, before I started working on them. A sad, sad bunch!
Stay tuned for the AFTER photos tomorrow 🙂
