Some “after” pictures. I wanted a streamlined, modern look to the yard. The horizontal fence that is all over Pinterest was my inspiration.
I’m still not sure about staining it….lots of upkeep. But I am staining the small deck off the patio door and re-staining the exterior of the gazebo in Sealskin sw7675 from Sherwin Williams. I had the exterior brick on my house painted in Sealskin….and I love it.
Now the dreaming and planning begins. I have decided to place the the Adirondack chairs on the patio with the fireplace. Should I keep the sleek black or spray them another colour? The new deck going into the side yard will house the outdoor sofa, coffee table and have a giant umbrella to enclose it. I am putting planter boxes along one side of the deck as a “fence” and to give it that feeling of coziness. I’m also going to make some cement balls from Pinterest for the gardens. I love projects like that and the best part, they can’t be over watered! Happy dreaming!
