A Dock Story

What was I thinking?

(Click here to see original post. and here)

We didn’t get finished, but we’re feeling much better about our neglected space.

Removed the splinter.

Wood screen doors replaced with vinyl.

Fallen tree stumps became side tables.

Removable, washable slip covers.

A roadside rescue table got a new home.

Cleaned the yard sale wicker.

Added stick blinds and Goodwill sheers.

Accessorized with old shells in an aluminum container,

galvanized metal, green plants,

and burlap.

We bought more lumber today,

I hope you’ll come back.

    Debbie, this is turning into a beautiful retreat! I love your side tables, they look perfect and the pillow is so pretty. I bet it is so peaceful and relaxing there by the water. I can’t wait to see what more you have planned.

    What a lovely space. I want to sit out there with a nice glass of tea, read a good book and watch the day go by. I’m eager to see more.

    Casters on those tree stump tables was pure genius. I know how heavy those suckers can be! Your re-styled area looks wonderful. Everything you salvaged and saved certainly was good on the budget, too. It all looks wonderful! I have a deck that need MAJOR splinters removed. Can you say 4-5 inch peeled back ones?! LOL

    I love that “roadside rescue” table…why do I never see things like that! Seriously, though, your dock area looks like it will become a much loved place to sit and while away summer evenings. I think you will need to treat yourself to a bottle of something chilled and bubbly when it’s finished. It looks great now, so it will be fab when you’re done!

    I am in LOVE with this space. I absolutely love that you put the stump side tables on wheels! Was that table really found curbside? Amazing. What great progress, I can’t wait to see more!!
