~The Deck is DONE!~ For now....
After a few days of shopping, planting, cleaning and some painting...here it is. I am so glad I like chippy paint! If I didn't, boy would I be in BIG trouble!
This little swing has a story....my oldest duaghter and I lugged this thing in the box up the stairs and put it together...took it apart...put it back together...took it apart...put it back together...well you get the picture. You see, I don't like reading directions, lol! And let me say, it was HOT out here while doing it! Sara was dying like the typical teenager that never likes doing anything other than what she likes to.
This table was given to me by my aunt and uncle when they moved to Florida. It was green so guess what I did? You got it...spray painted it white! The chairs were a find at Walley World and got a make over too! I found the rug at Home Goods and the wicker chair was another facebook yardsale purchase. It needed some paint too!
Last summer the hubs and I built the so called pergola and I made a cover for it and hung the sheers. Thsi deck gets a little hot, so we added some much needed shade to actually enjoy this space. A few years ago, I decided to stain the boards. BAD idea....after the first winter, it was all peeling. I have pressure washed this sucker and stained it over and over with every stain imaginable! This summer it isn't getting anything!
I found the mirror at Home Goods and the chair was a thrift store find. I slipcovered it with some bedding that I no longer needed. I just adore topiaries and when I found this one at Lowes...I knew I had to have it!
The girls and my husband bought me the pink geraniums for Mother's day. They know mama loves PINK!
I made the shelf under the window with some book ends that I found at Home Goods. They were a bright pink so I painted them white. They bled and became a light pink...how neat was that?!
The chandi came from K-Mart...it got painted too!
These planters were brown when I bought them from a lady. I love them white!
More pink geraniums!
I made a slipcover for the potted geraniums since I didn't want to paint it and ruin my pretty flowers.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed a peak of the back deck. Ther is more around the corner, but I am still working on it!
Always remember to live a good life and to love freely! God is so good!
