Because we have a small home, I really look forward to Summer and the opportunity to entertain outside. Many years ago My Better Half built a large deck on the back of our house and we use it A LOT during the Summer months. I like to spruce it up and make it homey like the inside of our home.
With plenty seating, we have room to entertain a crowd.
With things that I had lying around the garage and yard, I was able to make a fun and comfortable atmosphere.
I was given this chaise lounger but it was horribly uncomfortable!! So, I used a piece of insulation that I had left over from my two-sided canvas print to make it much more enjoyable!!
My amazing Better Half made both the planter bench and my picnic table.
Last Summer, I showed you this $5 Yard Sale rocking chair. I had to recover it this Summer. I covered it with a $2 vinyl table cloth.
A family favorite deck feature is the way some of us get off the deck.
We got this slide when my kids were little and the deck was the perfect place for it. Now that they are older, it doesn’t get as much use. Friends’ children love to play on it when they come over now.
I like to plant flowers in all sorts of different containers…it gives such a fun, unique look.
The steamer pot on my table was pulled out of a dumpster…that was my first (and only, so far) dumpster diving attempt. I’m pretty pleased with the results!!
Here are my Strawberry Planter Boxes, I showed you these a few weeks back. I made ’em all by myself!!
So that’s where we hang out during the Summer.
