Well, I can tell you that re-purposing a deck is not for the weak of muscle, mind or most of all patience! But except for the railing the deck that we rescued from the landfill has become our backyard deck. We have a big yet heavy slope yard that is fortunately surrounding on two sides by woods. Kind of unique for living in central town.
My husband is great at designing and we were happy to tackle this project together. Last weekend I broke in the deck with a yarn, muffins, and mimosa blessing! Now I have the pleasure of two great outdoor spaces for reading, sanding toys, and knitting!
I might need to make up another batch of mimosas this weekend just to give it another test round as I continue to make my second hat for a sweet co-worker and laugh my way through reading The Yarn Harlot!
