Ok, so here is a post that is not about my precious new grandson.... *heavy sigh*
As shown in earlier posts, we are replacing and covering our back porch/deck. I thought I'd show you how the deck part turned out.
You can't really tell much, but these are brand new treated boards. They aren't nailed down right here, but you get the idea.
Since we are going to cover the deck, we needed to replace the old light fixture, as it was too tall for a roof.
Not fancy or expensive, but just what we needed.
Our 33rd anniversary was on the 7th, so after we ran to the hospital to see Little Man Winston, we ran out to Lowes and got ourselves some chairs.
They aren't what I had in mind to begin with, but since I couldn't find any vintage/retro tulip chairs I could afford, these were my second choice. They are made of hard plastic and were only $17.00 each. I would love to have some cedar ones, but that will be a dream for the future. And I wanted them in the aqua blue color shown in the sale circular, but brown and green were the only choices at the store. I love green, so I can live with this. I considered trying to paint them, but decided to leave them be.
I found this plant stand at a flea market the other day for $10.00. I thought it would make a great base for an outside table.
I'm now on the hunt for the perfect thing to make a table top out of. I'm open to suggestions....
And I can't close this post out without a picture of my adorable, precious, wonderful grandson....(You knew I had to!)
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
