"Deck"orating-Part Three and 1/2

I'm linking up with for Metamorphosis Monday!
This is the other place I haunt...
Walking into this shop is like being enveloped into a hug from your favorite relative at a family reunion!
She (I think this store deserves to be spoken of a person!), has a million vignettes to pour over. Every little nook and cranny has things like this...


               Aunt Bee's is where I found this little gem for the deck

It is on casters and folds down on both sides. And the fact that it matched our existing table and I did not have to paint it was definitely a bonus!

A few weeks ago, I realized that there was a blank spot on the deck. It is highlighted by a poor paint job where the previous owners didn't think it mattered that the paint they used to do some touch up, didn't exactly match with the previous color. So, it looked something like this...

Lovely, huh?
This is where the table and the Wrought-Iron thingy come in!

Yankee Boy knew when he saw me walk through the door that he had a project waiting for him! I would recommend that if you have Stucco, like we do, that you thoroughly research how to properly hang something on your walls. You need to know what you are doing!
And now with the table underneath, the spot is blank no more!

Soooo much more inviting!
I found this little gem at "Aunt Bee's" as well and could not believe how perfect it was! I think it helps bridge the height gap between the table and the Wrought Iron piece.
Care to join me for some fresh-squeezed Lemonade?
A side view...
P.S. Yankee Boy saw this and said, "I thought the table was going to be for my grilling tools". Silly guy!
I have one more spot that needs to be filled and then I will show you the final product tomorrow! Thanks for sticking with me on this "Deck"orating Journey!
Here are a couple of more pictures from around our house for good measure...

This Clematis began as a tiny Clearance item at Lowes!

This row of Lavender lines our front walkway.
And, a handful of carrots, freshly picked from the garden!

On my way over for some Lemonade...wish it was true. Sigh. Love what you're doing with the deck and I love you!

Your deck looks great with the grille and table addition. What a cute shop. I love stores like that. I love your landscaping. I would love to see the whole yard. I am the landscaper here and I love manicured yards.

That looks beautiful! You did a great job covering up the "bad paint job" on the wall. I absolutely love the way you decorated the table. It's a beautiful vignette.
I am working on my back patio right now too, and I need all the inspiration I can get. :)
Thanks for emailing me about my blog. It is so nice to meet you. I think you are going to love blogging! It's been life changing for me.
Bless you!

Thanks so much Traci for hopping on over for a visit to my blog! Your sweet comments and encouragement mean more to me than you realize and I look forward to seeing what you do with your patio! The warm welcome I have received into the blogging community has been so awesome and I appreciate you being apart of that!

Your deck is truly adorable, Vanessa! I love all the little details you've added - they make the whole thing complete. You did such a great job! :)

The little table looks great! The landscaping is very pretty too.
