Brand New Patio

This post is a bit over due.. more like a year over due.. I kept putting it off because I never thought I had pictures good enough to do the space justice. But I think it's about time..







Well there is the before.. everything was over grown, the wood rotting, wobbly bricks.. it was a large space but just not very welcoming. 

We went back and forth between building a deck or a patio and in the end decided to go with a patio.

And so the work of ripping out the old and laying down a new one began..




and then comes the hard part of picking out the stone.. 






And then we were all done.. or so you'd think. We then began our search for patio furniture.


We went with a brown rectangular wicker table and coral metal chairs for the pop of color.


some comfy chairs  


and once the nights got longer and cooler we moved the table and chairs to the shed and the fire pit came out

Your new patio is great. I love how you have big space in your backyard, perfect for growing boys.
The progress keeper is from Sucre Sucre Miniatures. They're not just for knitters I think as they can be made into jewelry and stuff.

I think the new patio space looks really great. It takes time but it's worth it in the end to do a bit of upgrading. We are renovating our place, which seems like forever.
