After what seems like forever getting the deck renovation finished I can finally say it basically is done. There are still a few things to do like paint the windows and the door, but that will be when it isn't ninety degrees plus out there. Let me say one thing.... without the help from Mr. Savvy this project would not have ever happened. I have one very hard working man who made my vision become real.
Now I have this beautiful outdoor room! The addition of the pergola created the perfect space.
To refresh your memory this is a photo of how it looked when we got started in May and found some surprising water damage to the house that had to be repaired first.
I'm so glad I remembered these shutters were stored away. I painted them with two coats of exterior paint and then they were hung.
All we used was a small chain from Home Depot and some eye hooks.
They help add interest and actually help with the sun when it is on that side of the deck, which is most of the afternoon.
I shared peeks of the pillows in a post awhile back. They are all outdoor pillows. The pink ones and the flamingo pillow are from the Pottery Barn outlet and the larger floral paisley ones are from regular Pottery Barn.
I finally found two nice hanging baskets last week.
This time of year the pickings can be low, but at least they were half price and should last till it gets cold.
We spent a good bit on the furniture, but I wanted it to be made well, comfy and last.
I did a lot of shopping around before I made the purchase. This set by Brown Jordan made for the Home Depot was a fair price for nice thick cushions in a Sunbrella fabric. I can use whatever color accessories since the cushions are neutral.
The fun part was shopping for the accessories. The garden stool was found at HomeGoods and was less than forty dollars. I have seen so many for over one hundred. The stool makes a nice place to set a drink. The plant is not normally there. Both of these pillows are also from the Pottery Barn outlet.
The outdoor rug is from overstock.com and the orange and white Greek key outdoor pouff is from Joss & Main and it was purchased with credits that covered most of the price. The pouff can be used as an ottoman to put your feet up on or as an extra seat. The little table was also found at HomeGoods and is the perfect place for my coffee or a drink.
If you follow me on instagram then you saw a photo like this Saturday night. Won't you join me?
The red plastic wine glasses are from Ikea.
At night I light these lanterns and love to watch the light flicker in them when it's dark.
This pot of flowers moved from the front porch to the deck. They love it out here.
Oh, and did you see the string lights?
This is what they look like at night.
And this is the view from the door during the day.
I am looking forward to many nights and mornings sitting out here especially when the temps and humidity cool down a bit.
We worked hard in the yard all weekend and I can't wait to share it.
I hope y'all have a fabulous week!
