Melissa from The Inspired Room is having a linky party for all of us that have been putting off projects! We're supposed to declare our procrastination project and then (hopefully) work on it because in two weeks we're supposed to show the finished product. Yikes! Nothing like working under a deadline!
O.K. this is my project. Pretty drab looking right? I've been thinking about tackling this for two years now.
This is the little deck area that was left after we built the screened porch. We don't really use it. Well, hubby sits down when he's grilling but that's about it. However, I do see it out of my big kitchen window. So I've been wanting to do some thing special.
I want to extend the harlequin pattern of my kitchen floor out to the deck. I've been putting it off because a)I have no mathematical abilities and don't know how to figure out how to make a harlequin pattern on a floor and b)I have no mathematical abilities and really don't know how to figure out how to paint a harlequin pattern! Somehow angles and snapping string and things seems to be involved!
So my plan of action is to clean the deck with some deck cleaner and then paint it white (with deck paint) and then I'm going to take a leftover tile from the kitchen and just use it as a guide and take it from there. Everything but the grill will be painted and the planters will be planted with new herbs and flowers and hopefully I'll come up with some low cost ideas to pretty it up cause I don't want to spend alot of money.
So hope the weather cooperates for me and I can get this done in between planting things!
