Navy and White Upper Deck / Patio Makeover




Our deck was in dire need of some TLC, so we decided to give it a little makeover!

I wish I'd remembered to take a "before" pic.  Just picture a really ugly, weathered upper deck with absolutely nothing going for it. ;)

A fresh coat of "deck coat" (thank you Dustin!) and a new privacy hedge of potted cedars were in order. These made a huge difference to the look/feel of the deck! A fun navy and white chevron rug from Target, as well as some bright outdoor cushions added a bit of punch to the whole place. We have been loving every minute spent on our deck since we spruced it up, and I'm sitting out here as I write this post with my feet up at the outdoor propane fireplace :). 


Bliss.
















We are so lucky to have little chickadees living in our birdhouse for the first time! There's a whole family of them in there, and the chorus of tweets that rises up when mama chickadee comes home with a snack is so adorable. We can't wait to see them all fly out when they're ready!












I'm looking forward to lots of summer days and evenings on our deck! It's already had a lot of use, and the season is only just starting.  The boys were so excited when they first saw it all set up and have been loving the much-needed extra living space to play in! "Mama...is this ours to keep?? Like our very own hotel?" haha! 

Have a wonderful week!

  1. oh it looks wonderful! I can just imagine how much time & pleasure you will get from this pretty space!
    Love that your boys love it!
    Sweetest birds! I cleaned out our bird house (after they flew away for the winter) after a few years and the next spring they wouldn't nest in it! It was so full and spilling out...I should have read up on it first!
    Your little bird family will be so fun for your family to watch!
