Deck Project

Many moons ago we owned a hot tub.  We enjoyed it for more years than I can remember, but after replacing the motor too many times to count...we dismantled it and got rid of it! 

The tub sat on a small deck out back, which we did not dismantle.  The center of this deck is the original hot tub deck. 
We purchased a new patio set, but alas...it did NOT fit on our small deck.  Soooo...you know what that means...outdoor project!  In June!

We started this project several weeks ago, but then the heat came, then the monsoon rains, then again with the REAL heat. 

We finally got the last of the stain on the wood early Saturday morning (while it was yet cool!)


We also purchased a cover, rather than a single table umbrella.


I moved the "rug" from the patio area outside the back door (giving this a little more homey feel) and raised the tent.

We stabilized the tent onto the deck with screws (in case we get a BIG wind storm!)

Now I think I need some potted flowers around the deck for some color!


I think this will be the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee!

Till tomorrow...
