Spring Is Coming: Decorating the Deck

Atlanta felt a hint of Spring this past weekend and it put the entire city in high spirits! Temperatures have since dropped off, but that taste of warm weather was all we needed to start preparing for the sunny season!

We love to entertain and really enjoy grilling out in particular. We added on a large deck last Fall with the help of our amazing friends. However, we never quite added the finishing touches we had planned due to the onslaught of rain we experienced. As Spring approaches, we are antsy to finish the space.

The main items left on our list:

1- Paint the railings to match the trim on the house
2- Find/Build a buffet piece which will be used both for serving and to house the cable box for the outdoor television
3- Build custom cabinets for the Big Green Egg
4- Add decorative pillows to brighten the existing brown/bronze furniture
5- Purchase outdoor lamps to make the deck feel more like an outdoor living space

The good news? Pottery Barn just released a buffet in their Chesapeake line that matches our patio table. This is a much easier and inexpensive option than the built in. We already put one on order. I LOVE it! Check it out below:

(I only WISH that we had a pool too!)

Plenty of space for the cable box, servingware, glasses, etc.

I hope mine looks stocked like this all the time.

I will post pictures when the buffet comes in and continue to update on the progress of the other items.
