Deck Make-over


I am going to attempt to link for the first time ever. If I am successful, please be sure and check out the Between Naps on the Porch blog. It is one of my favorites and can be found at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.
For the last ten years, we have had a hot tub in our backyard. The whole family enjoyed it on numerous occasions. Sadly, the heater and the pump went out and we found a crack in the hot tub. We made the decision not to repair and to extend our existing deck instead.
Here is a photo of our hot tub in it's glory:



Try to envision this tranquil scene without the ladder. Removal of it has been on my husband's honey do list for 10 years and guess what, that darn ladder is still there! You can catch a glimpse of it hidden behind a hibiscus in one of the after pictures below.

And here is a picture of the area after removal of the hot tub.





Now for the transformation:





I am on the lookout for a small outdoor rug and hope to eventually add a water feature. I hope you enjoyed my hot tub to deck transformation. A special shout out to my husband and sons for making it happen.
Until next time, have a Merry Metamorphosis!
