ADDING SOME LOVE…

TO A SECOND STORY SUMMER HOUSE DECK…

You can’t go wrong with white furniture and a few items that add color/comfort to an outside deck.

Below are BEFORE & AFTER photos of our deck on Cape Cod.  It’s been two years since we built the second story deck.  Each year I try to add something new.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  It’s hot & sunny here in MA.

Happy Monday!

WHITE GOES WITH EVERYTHING!

Plastic chairs make it easier when transporting up and down a flight of stairs.

DECK IN NEED OF FLOWERING PLANTS!

PLANTS COMPLETE THE LOOK!

In need of pretty plant pots.

Hesitant on using ceramic pots because of strong winds during summer storms.

Might spray paint some old plastic ones instead.

A GLIMPSE OF THE OCEAN…

This is my safe haven…

When I get to the top I temporarily forget about EVERYTHING!

It’s amazing how selective hearing kicks in and often times I can’t even hear my kids fighting below.

It’s amazing what a summer deck can do!!!

  1. You will find certainly plenty of details like this to take into consideration. This is a great point to bring up. My spouse and i offer the views above while general inspiration but plainly there are questions like the one a person bring up in which the most important thing will be working in trustworthy good faith. I put on?t see whether best practices emerged around items like that, however i am sure that the job is actually clearly recognized as a fair online game. Both children feel the effect of merely a moments pleasure, for the remainder of their lifestyles.

  2. I love Cape Cod. I have cousins in MA and NH so naturally the Cape has been somewhere we have visited a number of times when over that side of the pond. A lovely place indeed, and I can quite understand your love with it, especially as a place of escape. May you have plenty of happy times there on your cracking summer house deck.

    • How nice that you have relatives in this area and NH. Such a great place to live and visit. Tonight is one of our first chilly nights on the Cape. I’m loving it after all the hot days we have had. Enjoy your night!

      • Hmm, a chilly night sounds nice, lol. Here in Turkey we are topping 110-115 days and often 85-90 at night 😦
        Here’s a thought… cold autumnal days in New England, and a bowl of steaming Clam Chowder 🙂

      • Wow… Turkey! Are you from that area? Sounds like it’s hot and doesn’t cool down much at night. Love New England in the fall. It’s my favorite time of year. We’ve been having clam chowDAH all summer on the Cape. Take care…
