We have a deck off our bedroom that we have never, ever used.
It's really sad because it's a nice sized deck and it's very quiet in the backyard where it faces.
But, we've just neglected it for going on 7 years.
Birds have pulled stuff off the side of the house.
Those leaves are from last Fall (if not the Fall before that). So sad and neglected!
I decided to turn it into a usable space.
The first thing I did was sweep it well and then I put down a fresh coat of stain - the same stain I had left over from our front porch staining project earlier this year.
I was amazed that cleaning and staining took less than 45 minutes.
Why hadn't I taken this on before??
Then yesterday Brennan and I took a trip to Lowe's where I picked up these two Adirondack chairs and the little plant. Sooo much better! And I love that blue.
Brennan and I sat out and read for a little while until it got too hot.
As soon as the temperatures dip down a little, I plan to sit out with an iced tea and read!
And maybe David and I can enjoy it in the evenings?
