We previously had a small deck on the house when we moved. It went out to the exact spot that my yellow lab, Lance, is perched upon in this picture. It had a lot of railings around it as well.
Rob extended the deck a few more feet last summer. He built the pergola himself over the past year. Yes, I said year. If you have been following our blog for a while you understand that statement. Two weekends ago he stained the deck gray and the pergola white.
We added a small bistro set and chaise from Wal-Mart. We will eventually get a large set, but for now these two pieces are functional for our use. I ordered this rug from Overstock.
I picked up this adorable garden stool from Lowes. The pillows are from Overstock.
I purchased the set out outdoor curtains from Target last year. Thanks to an end cap sale spot where these were marked down to $5 a piece. There were an online order return. They were originally almost $40 per panel. I picked up two clearance planters from Target last week, and Rob put some plants in them. Apparently the larger plant will grow pretty quickly.
These planters were $27 a piece. Wynn's little chair was purchased from Lowes last year, but the other day I saw they still had them in stock.
Rob put some eye hooks in the top of the pergola to hang some outdoor strand lights. They were about $8 a box for the bulb lights and $12 a box for the lantern set. They really provide a great light source once the sun goes down. We were able to spend two evenings in a row for almost two hours with no kids waking up. That is a miracle in our house at this point.
We are going to find a new home for our grill soon. That way we can have even more space on our deck. The cost for the actual deck extension and pergola was a little under $700 for lumber, stain and other odds and ends.
Thanks for stopping by!
