This is our new deck. We made it out of 13' siding pallets that we got from a lumber yard. We put three of them together and reinforced some of the wobbly boards to make it a little more sturdy. We finished this a couple of weekends ago, but tonight was our first time having dinner on it.
Some of our friends are kinda shy, so I will just post the pics of us :). My hubby also got our hammocks out of the garage and Petey decided that he wanted to joinme on it. Of course once he was up there he wasn't so sure about it - lol.
One of the tree branches that my hubby cut off the tree last weekend, we have turned into seating - it wraps around the outside of the deck.
We still have a lot if work to do around it, but I am so excited to have most if the heavy lifting mostly done.
The Bear Paws - those are my favorite! When my hubby and I got married (almost 12 years ago) we honeymooned in Big Bear, California. We bought our first set of Iron Bear Paws and every year since we have tried to buy a set. Although after we pulled them all out of the garage we realized we are a few years (sets) behind. This is only part of them. The rest will go throughout the yard as a paths.
Deck Update: July 13, 2013
This is what our deck looks like a few months later. I built some flower boxes for the side of the deck so Pete would stop sleeping in the flower beds :). We also put some planters behind the deck to hold our herbs and a few pepper plants. We are really enjoying sitting out on the deck with each other and with friends. We still have a few more little touches to make, and will update it to this post.
