Creating A Deck Destination

Let's have a look at the deck on "The Bungalow" flip house.
Renovations are well underway and I will be putting my focus on styling the deck.
It will be listed on the market in June.
Let's have a look at what it looks like today, and what I have in plans.

Keeping in mind this is the before stage...

Whether the weather is cooperating where you are or not, let's officially declaring it outdoor season.
So it’s time to dust off the patio set and get a jump start on spending quality time in the backyard.
I am teaming up with Wayfair to create a welcoming, relaxing deck destination.

Of the flip houses I have right now, The Bungalow deck and backyard is very private and relaxing.
Located in a small town subdivision, it is surrounded by large trees, giving the backyard all the privacy you need to go for a swim and to enjoy family and friend gatherings, a bbq or just relaxing with a book while you soak up the sun.

Have a look at the deck the way it is now.
Lots of work needed here - sand and paint the deck, replace missing spindles.
I would like to keep the pool if possible, but keeping the pool I will have to add a fence around it.

Here are some plans for the styling of the deck.
Since I am at the planning stages, the first place I always hit are my stores.
And my number one store is Wayfair
First place I start is in their sale section....always in the budget mind set!

 Whenever I think of a backyard deck, I think gazebo.
Maybe it's because I love being outdoors, and love relaxing under shade.
For this property I would go with a portable gazebo.  And put it directly in front of the swimming pool.

I love the look of an outdoor chaise lounger.
And I especially love this look.

A pretty fireplace to enjoy on a warm summer evening.
I can hear the fire crackling!

And what could be more relaxing than the sound of bubbling water from a water fountain.

And a few floral containers

Stay tuned for the before and afters of this deck, and the entire house!
We are busy making all kinds of changes to this beauty.
I check in everyday on Facebook and Instagram
