I thought I´d show you this year´s version of the deck (here it is last year). There have been a few changes... for example, we have upgraded/switched the chairs (these are Ikea, painted a light grey).
Also, we have a railing! Wohoo! The husband built it and it took forever, but I really really like it. We were a bit nervous about it ruining our view when we sit on the rockers, but the deck is raised about 1.5 meters above the ground so it´s not exactly safe without a railing. And I am happy to report that the view is still good.
I like these hanging baskets. Another example of what gems one can find at our tiny local hardware store.
Also there is this giant trunk that we found in one of the abandoned barns in the village. It was green already, I just sealed the wood and painted the hardware white. Love it!
