Deck-orated OR My Deck is (almost) Finished

beekeeperswifeApril 5, 2013

We finished building the deck last year just in time for it to get cold. So we are really looking forward to using it this year. We went to a garden store, found a set of furniture I really thought was so comfortable. I found the cushions that it came with acceptable so we bought them. The next day I was on Craigslist (I told you I have been slightly obsessed lately with it) and I found a woman who was moving into a townhouse and she was selling her table, chairs and chaise lounges that matched the stuff we just bought. I got a great deal on the stuff she was selling. I am still waiting for the white cushions for the chaises to arrive, Hautelook is a bit slow with this order. But here is an overall picture of the whole deck. I'm not going to upload these to Photobucket (just so painfully slow, so I'll post a couple of different posts with the photos).

The furniture is all from Hanamint.

The cushions on the seats at the table are from Pier 1

We replaced the lava rocks with fire glass in the fire table

Nice. I really like the blue color. Can't wait for the days when we can sit outside.

What time are you expecting us? I would like to stretch out on one of those chaises and sip an adult beverage , Bumble :-)

It's very inviting!

We'll be right over. Shall I bring the gin?

And bless your heart, you made it big enough!

People so often miscalculate the necessary scale for a really comfortable, livable outdoor room. It looks wonderful.

Stunning! I love the colors and the furniture design. I don't leave candles outside anymore though - last summer my candles in lanterns melted in the heat and made a huge mess of the lanterns and table!

I never heard of fire glass, is this better or nicer or cleaner than the lava rocks?

I do not have a fire table but would like to get one.

Any suggestions?

thanks again. Today was nice out and we did get a chance to sit out there without freezing. Then my dh had to get to the airport so the sun worshipping ended.

lyban, we bought that firetable from Lowe's. The patio store sells them too, however they sell theirs for over $2k and there was no way I could ever justify that. This was around $300 or so. We took the lava rocks out and replaced with the fire glass. It looks soooo much better. Has a nice sparkle to it when it's lit. The lava rocks were just dead darkness. We ordered the fireglass from Amazon after picking out the colors in person at the patio store....again, they wanted $15/lb. We bought for around $5/lb. Big difference considering we bought 30lbs of it.

b's mom--oh, a g&t would be lovely. What time will you get here? And yes, the deck is large. (I actually wanted it to go out further but you just gotta stop spending somewhere, right? It's 34' long.

tinan, yes, I'm already thinking about the candles and melting issue....probably have to go with battery candles. I just love the blue though.

Here is a link that might be useful: some of the fire glass on Amazon

Bee,
Thanks for explaining that. I am going to look into it.
Your deck is lovely and so private.
