I don’t know which I like more- the deck or the dog! We took on a composite decking project this past spring- turned into quite a long project but hopefully it will last a long time and not require much maintenance

Love your patio!! I wish ours was covered, a day bed would be so much easier than finding expensive patio furniture! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks Amelia!! Yes I think the day bed was around $100 and we have enjoyed it so much. In the winter I just take the pillows and bedding off and cover it with an outdoor patio cover and to protect it.
Thanks for coming over and commenting!
Hi, Where is the day bed from?
Hi! I found the daybed on Walmart.com. It’s part of the BHG live better line at Walmart 🙂
