Time for a Deck Makeover

    I am always happy when deck season comes around.  This year is no exception.  The deck is a great escape from our sweltering house.  Recently, though, I have been feeling uninspired about the current set up.  Here is what we are currently working with:
Definitely nothing special in terms of design and decor.  Part of the reason for the bland set up is the gigantic chairs that we have with the table.  They are very comfortable and I like them, but they require a lot of space to push in and away from the table to move around.  They would be perfect on a giant patio.  They aren't great for our long skinny deck.  I don't want to just accept defeat, though.

    Here is my new plan.
    I have spent a long time looking for a cost effective option.  I wanted to get plain, picnic table benches, but those have proven difficult to find.  I was cruising around on Pinterest the other day and found my inspiration.  Here is what I will be trying to make my own version of.

    I won't be painting them like the first picture.  I want to make the posts look more like the second picture.  I think I will be going to Lowes this evening to get the supplies.  I will keep you updated with my progress.

  1. Those are great inspirations for your long deck. I like your idea of adding picnic table benches to save space since that seems to be your problem in the first place. How did it go? Were you able to redecorate your deck? Do keep us posted on your future plans. =)
