So in the spirit of moving things around (which I love so much), the heavy shelving went to the side of the house to store trash cans, and other sundry items. It will be a nice spot for Left Brain to hang his bike helmet, gloves and sweaty clothes when back from a long ride.
I'm in love with these little tables to tuck into corners.
I found a smaller, cuter baker's rack at Hobby Lobby and this works perfectly for my decorative items that I never had space for. It will double as a serving area for snacks when we have people over to visit or play cards.
I made a little sitting area at the front of the deck using the table that used to be inside the house and the two extra chairs from the dining room.
A new table cloth was added to the table to continue my brown, orange, yellow and red theme going on out here.
The string of orange lights add a little festivity to the area.
I found that an over the door hanger fit on my pvc pipe "wall" and so I added this little planter with fake flowers on my "cat proof" wall.
A cheap little shoe rack has been added to the front entryway to keep them organized.
This classy gate to the deck now has an open/closed sign.
It's starting to come together nicely and the cats and I enjoy the deck at about 5:00 am when you can actually be outside for any length of time.
Long Live the Decked Out Queen
Side note: by the time this blog is being posted it has been rearranged already. This will come to no surprise to anyone who knows me.
