Well we didn’t get the fantastic storm that was forecast…it’s overcast, muggy and warm now…feels stormy…when I was down at the beach earlier after a workout it was pretty amazing…the colours were dark and pink and blue all at the same time and as I stood overlooking the beach with lg, we saw dolphins with our coffee!
A Beach Cottage deck progress update for you…
As you know I quite like beach decor and the coastal look…I think that a deck decorated with that look in mind is just lovely…
Here’s the deck frame before the slats were put on
and the steps going up to the front door to the deck
now boxed in and ready to be painted…to go with the beach decor theme… beach colour perhaps?
We went down a few different avenues on wood for the deck…in the end, because I wanted a painted deck for that beach decor look (can you guess what colour? ;-) ) so we plumped for the budget-friendly option on the materials…deciding that we wouldn’t want to be painting the more expensive deck timber anyway
I wanted the feel of picket fence/old cottage for the deck, but a touch more modern/coastal nautical so went for plain deck slats topped with chunky handrail which will be painted in my beach white, though I think the actual deck floor might be left to weather or painted the same grey as the back deck…which is kinda a pebble grey….
This is a small deck/veranda, I am hoping for Adirondacks out here and a little table for one’s drink….can’t wait to get it all styled…I think though when it is ready it will be not so uch about beach decor but more about time to be getting the Coastal Christmas decs out…
I am thinking hydrangeas (if it’s not too hot), a few big pots and the odd coastal /nautical beach decor thing…like an oar or similar…
We have a lot of painting to do….
Adios for now lovelies, I’ll be back soon
