Our old deck was beyond the point of repair and needed to be completely replaced. After several days of demolition, H started construction of the new deck which took about a week. Now, I am excited to share our new deck with you
We decided that we really didn't need a deck as big as the old one. The new deck sits about a foot in front of the tree where as the old deck sat about 6 feet behind the tree.
The old deck had a white wrought iron fence around it.
The wooden picket fence gives the new deck a casual Farmhouse feel.
We recycled the old faux fireplace by giving it a fresh coat of paint and a new mirror.
I replaced the ornate fireplace screen with a vintage fireplace heater. I felt this change added to the Farmhouse look that I was going for on the new deck.
I had more furniture than we needed on the front porch, so I furnished the new deck with two love seats that we seldom used on the porch.
I plan to recover the cushions that were on the wicker love seats with the fabric that you see draped on the back of them
I played with the decor on the mantel all afternoon....lol!
So you will see that half the photo's of the mantel have a pink pick up, a white enamel vase full of roses........
And a white enamel plate!
The other half of the photo's have a simple wreath on the mantel.
I have a pink chandelier on each side of the fireplace that I plan to give a makeover later.
Here's the fireplace with the simple wreath on the mantel..........which do you like the best?
Another addition to the new deck is a wood frame for me to hang curtains on
The curtains can be drawn across to give the deck privacy.........in case we want to have a romantic dinner!
I made a Farmhouse banner using pink buffalo check pennants to hang across the fireplace mantel.......
The center pennant has a fun cow glued on it.
The wood frame you saw my curtains hanging on goes completely around the deck, so I can hang plants........windows........or just about anything on it
I will have fun tweaking the new deck all summer........hope you don't get tired of seeing it!
I need to decorate this side of the deck now. The chair could use a pillow or two and maybe a light throw for cool nights.......some stuff on the little white table next to the chair.......
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my new deck reveal.......come back soon!
