{ deck } planter boxes, sunshade

I finally got around to the deck makeover. The problem was, it faces south and is always HOT. A couple years ago Keith build a pergola over the deck to help shade. I love the look of the pergola but it still was HOT.

We originally stained them dark brown. It ended up burning the kids feet and would splinter off into their feet. We sanded and put another clear stain and months later looked like CRUD! I finally bought some paint that is suppose to last for years, (we will see).

Next step was to hand planter up. I built wall planters to let in light but also to help shade.

Last step was to hand actual accordian style shades that would be pulled back.
Now it’s like a little oasis and I love how it turned out.
