I knocked down the railing on the back of my deck this past weekend. I am ready to start fixing up the outdoor area. I love how open it is now, it doesn't feel all closed in. I have a fence around my yard, so I didn't really see the need to have this little area fenced in also.
Here is how it looked before.
In the photo below, this is looking to the left. This side faces my neighbors house and my neighbor is a little close, so I'm wanting to put up a privacy fence on this part of my deck.
In the photo below, I like how this privacy wall looks on the deck. This is sort of the goal I am trying to reach.
I wouldn't mind if the view looked out to the ocean, but I am happy with all the beautiful green lush trees towering all around me and shading me from the harsh sun and heat we've been having. :)
I also adore this little set up to sit and eat at. I had a little table and chair on my back deck when I lived in Melbourne, FL, wish I hadn't got rid of it. I may invest in a little seating area like this though, the picnic table is too bulky so I have that back in the carport and will only pull it out when I have company over.
It doesn't look like much now, but I have a vision. I'm going to reseal the floors, maybe stain them, not sure. I might paint the new privacy fence and remaining rails white, add the bistro set and put some flowers around. Can you see the vision?
