Patio Idea Board

I guess technically this should be called a Deck Idea Board, but while a deck is what we have, that word just conjures images of something more nautical or water related. We definitely have no water in the backyard, aside from the puddles accumulating with all the recent rain. One of the things I have been looking forward to since we decided to buy a house is having some outdoor space. It's nothing fancy, in fact there are currently tall weeds (again, all that rain) and some sparse patches in the grass. But we have a shallow but long deck and a view of it all from our large living room window. This weekend's trip to IKEA was my chance to pick up a lot of the furniture for our outdoor area. I just need to layer in a few accessories, get the lighting issue figured out, and then this rain to stop so I can put our furniture together and get everything just so. I can't wait to be able to entertain our friends and family outside, along with being able to sit and have a cup of coffee or do some reading anytime I please.

Looks great! I was just at Ikea this past weekend-- shopping for my boyfriend's new apartment, not for outside, but it looks like your patio is going to look pretty snazzy. Can't wait to see it.
