Hey my friend! We spent a lot of time getting our two tiered deck cleaned up and ready for the summer months last weekend. We have a small upper deck right off of our kitchen, and then a large lower deck underneath of that. It is a great space for entertaining, and it gets a lot of shade from a huge tree right next to it. I thought I would share what it is looking like right now. There are still some flowers I need to plant in containers out here.
We had a huge farewell party on Memorial Day for Our Swedish Daughter, and at the spur of the moment we decided to buy a small café table and chairs for the top deck. We have been wanting one since we moved in here, and I just love the one we found!
I like these chairs better than the one’s that came with the table, and the table goes perfectly with them! I love this weather proof wicker material. I have had these chairs for several years and they still look brand new!
Here is a close up of the new chairs.
Do you remember when I painted this deck last summer? Well, here it is one year later.
And again, here it is now. Not too bad for the horrible winter we had! I am thinking next summer I will give it a fresh coat of white. It shouldn’t be too difficult to just take a small brush and go over each square. I may even do it this year if I get the time. But I am very happy with how it is holding up.
The space down here is fabulous, and if I had I had a bigger budget, I could do so much down here.
These two chairs were a curbside find. They need a fresh coat of paint. But I didn’t have time to get to them before the party. I did buy these new cushions for them. I want to buy some outdoor pillows to prop up in them to make the backs more comfy.
I bought some wrought iron brackets and had LC hang my ferns on these wooden posts. I love ferns, and they do not do well in front of our house, so we put them back here instead. You can read about how I spray painted these chairs here.
Great view, don’t you agree!
Do you remember these chairs that I found along the curb last summer, along with the one’s above? I spray painted these red last summer. These chairs are gliders, and are very comfy. They are holding up fairly well, but could use a touch up. I did purchase two new cushions for them. I decided to go with something completely neutral. I just feel better about neutral because I know it will will match anything I decide to put out here. Plus, the red is already a pop of color. I don’t want to choose cushions to match my table and chairs, because they are going to need replaced in the next couple of years, so I figured tan will match anything I choose in years to come.
These chairs are behind my table and chairs. You can see Mr. 6 Year Old’s sandbox is also down here. It is nice because it doesn’t get grass in it when he plays in it. And it is pretty private back here.
