The Summer Room

Live from the brand new Summer Room

Back Deck Transformation Post !

You may remember yesterday’s pics of the back deck with the new gazebo and second hand furniture…

Well,  after 4 hours of scrounging through the dregs of the summer sales sections of 5 different stores for bargain cushions that fit and looked good,

plus a lot of repurposing of pillows and accessories from around the house,

not to mention quite a bit of elbow grease and sweat used to put it all together on a very hot July afternoon,

we have this !

Ironically, after all that hard work yesterday, the Queen was too exhausted and way, way too hot to sit out there and enjoy the fruits of her labor when the temps were in the 80s and very humid all evening.

She retired to the ac indoors after her work was done and after she got some “atta girls” from her sweet Hubby.

But this morning, after a thunderstorm rolled through and cooled things down a bit, and before the heat of the afternoon find her,

you will find one happy and satisfied Queen

holding court in the Summer Room.

Winking smile

Happy Tuesday, Beautiful Ones !

I hope you find a sweet corner just for yourself today !

This is absolutely splendid!! It has "you" written all over it. And I do believe that had you gone in to any store and found an abundance of materials to choose from it would never have had the Queen's stamp on it. To me, this new room says "this is my world and welcome to it" -- and I love it!!!! Enjoy your day lounging in the new space! xo

Lovely and comfy looking. I understand about the heat...we have been having 100º+ temps so I don't spend much time outside either.
