For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining.
For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the space, but something has always come up and before we know it the summer is over and we are indoors more and the deck project gets pushed aside.
This year we finally made sure to put the deck in our plans and actually hired it out.
In April we stained it.
Whew! Here is the final reveal…for now at least. We shall see what gets tweaked next summer.
We now have a seating area with a good amount of shade, a little kids area and a dining area.
Loving my new lucite tray from Laura Dro Designs. I have been using it constantly since I got it.
My plain jane toss pillows got zhushed up a bit, with a roll of Aztec ribbon and fabric glue.
Love my serapa blanket:

Love using my DIY Batik blanket as a tablecloth.
