My New Deck

This spring my Dad built my dream deck. I have always wanted a deck where I could sit outside, maybe entertain sometimes, and enjoy my wee little garden space. He did a fabulous job, bigger and better than I imagined. Thank you, Daddy.

Now for the table in the front - it is a gift from my lady friends. It goes with the new wicker chairs that I got for my birthday last month. Well, if you are going to have a deck, you have to have somewhere to sit - right?
The beautiful white banner on the fence is from an Etsy vendor, Catcarousel, all the way from Spain. She sews them from beautiful white crisp cotton fabric, each flag is different. I wish I had a camera that would take close-ups so you could see how pretty it is.




There is my garden shed in the background. The photos are a bit darker because of the cloud cover, but the forcast was for rain tomorrow.





I have a lavender plant in the ice bucket that I bought at the Passionate Home's Canadian Farm Chick Tag and Garden sale. If you can't read it, it says 'Fleurs' on it. I love it!







Thank you for joining me on my deck, I hope you had a good time.

How sweet of your dad to build you the deck you’ve always wanted! It looks great! What wood did he use for the deck? Oh, and the furniture you placed on it is perfect!

Barrett Elmore said...

Your dad did such a great job with your deck! It definitely looks comfy and cozy. I would suggest staining the wood though, especially the floor planks, to keep them waterproof. A dark mahogany or cherry stain would add a really good contrast to the stark white color of the excellent furniture you chose.

What a lovely deck you have! The white chair is definitely the highlight of the space. It complements the dark wood shade of your fence. The red flowers are also a nice touch! I hope you still keep your deck this way, or improve it even more. :)
