New Deck and Flower Pretty

Yay, deck reveal day! The new deck and flower pretty is the plan for today. Look at this sky down below, beautiful and there hasn’t been many this spring.  


John did a fantastic job on our deck and I love it.  This angle is out our kitchen door on to the deck with one step down.

The little lattice gate John put together as a just in case thing.   Peanut is too short to ever think about running down the main deck stairs.  Reeses is little too but if he saw a squirrel we don’t want to take a chance.


You can see the striations of color in the Trex boards.  Hence the decision to have black rails with a Trex board on top. I also think it makes the deck feel elegant.


I’m loving the rug I found on Wayfair.  It was very inexpensive and free shipping.  I love the color of blue and it gives a French feel which I was hoping to achieve.


The furniture we had from our old house.  It has held up great and I was concerned of the quality when I bought it.  I found it on JcPenny two years before we moved so going on seven years it looks brand new.  Loving the neutral cushions too.


I have had this crate for a few years now.  I like the rustic French feel filled with beautiful pink flowers.  As you can see we were enjoying a glass of wine.


This photo shows you the back side of the crate with a small table with the pretty battery operated candle to add some texture.  Love the image being on both sides.


The rails look wonderful don’t they?  The flower pots are all designed by yours truly.  I love using the reverse transfer method with French graphics.  The larger pot I recently painted and you can read about it HERE.  They are 20 year old pots I wanted to give a lighter feel.



A closer look at the pots.  I think I achieved a French feel with the large pot.


Doesn’t the pot above have a beautiful image?  Reverse transferring is easy and so much fun.  If anyone is interested I am willing to do a tutorial. There are many examples on Pinterest too.  


Another pot I repainted.  In this view is what we call the puppy run.  It is open to the deck as you can see.  I will do a post about information on this another time.  Let me just say the BEST money we spent ever!


Reeses sitting looking around, he loves it out here.

Below are more pots I painted and did reverse transfers.  Love the lantern there too to add some texture.  I had to take a picture of Peanut doing here favorite thing, sniffing.




A pretty sight with the pots filled with pink beauty.



This is the step back into the kitchen.  John made this from scratch.  It’s perfect height for our little girl.  Notice how short her legs are?  The white piece she is sniffing is motion lights we installed after she lost her vision in her eye, to help her see.  We have them out the other door leading directly into their run.


Had to show this beauty one more time.  Hope you liked the deck and seeing all the pretty touches.  I hope you have a great start to your week.
