I am really going to spread this outdoor dream area out in my postings.
PHASE I HERE
It is being done all in stages and it has been so much fun and a joy to see my vision all coming together!
These are our new outdoor Adirondack rockers. Mike is so organized when he has a project to do.
Not me, I would have had every nut and bolt all over the place!
But they would have been together, not saying they would have stayed together!
Today Mike and I spread 11 bales of pine needles around the perimeter or our new deck. I knew I could not do away entirely without them.
I am OK with it because it still looks rustic, yet I do not have to walk and slide all over them.
I mentioned I would be having lots of color out here.
Instead of traditionally painting our chairs, we went the staining route with color.
Spray painting I have found it chips and peels over time and just not easy to sand off when having to redo.
I am done spray painting outdoor chairs!
Finally a place for my Spanish rustic horse head!
Some people do not care for this horse head, I happen to like it, I just needed the right spot for it,
and now I do believe I found it!
We have plenty of wood for those Fall and Winter fires we plan on having!
Here is the stain brand and name of the color we used.
Mike says the chairs look like a dill pickle...
I love pickles!
After staining the chairs, we applied three coats of polyurethane.
Easy maintenance just wipe up, and perhaps yearly add a fresh coat of poly.
There is certainly more to come out here..but as you can see it is coming along nicely.
Perhaps some pretty plants and containers, mums for Fall, etc.
I can't wait to decorate!
