We built 2 large chests/benches to sit on our deck. This is for pool storage since this summer we were able to purchase a 15' inflatable Intex pool from Kijiji. The plan is to edge the top of the chest so that a cushion can be placed there to make seating more comfortable.
The deck I designed and Rick built. Love angles and curves added to straight lines. This deck has been such a blessing. So pretty to sit with the gardens surrounding it.
We dug out a square area around our fire pit, put down some large patio pavers and filled in between and around the edges with pea stone. At night when we have a fire, the flames reflect in the glass panes of the garden door and it looks so pretty.
