Our New Back Patio

IMG_3287.JPG.jpeg
We started our new back patio project in November, finished in December, and I'm finally getting around to sharing pictures! You can see the before and during pictures HERE.

There is a hot tub on the far end, which is Phillip's Christmas present for the next 10 years!

Hopefully the pergola will keep the area a little cooler in the summer.

My favorite spot to sit.

There are fleece throws under the table for cold evenings.

I'm oh-so-envious (yes, I'm confessing)! How beautiful! If I had a patio like this, I'd never go back inside again. :)

I'm so impressed that you got it mostly done in a month! I like the stone floor. I'm guessing you did it yourselves but I wish I knew how. Beautiful!

Terri said...

PEA said...

Oh Kelli, it looks absolutely gorgeous and so comfy!! You're lucky I don't live nearby, you'd find me sitting on your beautiful rattan furniture every evening! lol And there's even a hot tub...awesome:-) xoxo

The area looks beautiful and so peaceful. I am sure you will get a lot of use out of the space. I love your Texas stars, they are very effective.

You obviously don't get spiders and insects like we do - all the furniture would be infested with spider webs and beetles within a week in Australia! :)

Cheers - Joolz

Your new patio is certainly a work of Heart.

I wish that here in the Midwest where I live - we had a longer out door season. A hottub has to be brought inside or it might get a bit chilly in winter.

Hugs,
Penny

I am so jealous. We have more snow on the way after a very snowy winter already. :)

Adrienne said...

Your new space is wonderful! Just right for quiet moments and times together with your family and friends. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I can see that this would be a favorite place to hang out when weather permits...Honey Bear has been planning for a hot tub for some time..we thought he would be able to do the work for it this Fall but he was unable to take time off...he is trying to cut some of his work time out and be semi retired but his bosses aren't getting the message...Anyway, he wants to do a shower in our bathroom on the wall where the hot tub will sit outside so wanted to do the wiring and plumbing at the same time....I was wondering: Whose going to do the maintenance on yours..my daughter has one and although it isn't a big deal, someone has to be willing.

Hi Kelli!

WOW! Your patio is beautiful, but I knew it would be! I love the fabric on the chair and loveseat. They turned out great! Your family is mightily blessed! Take care and thank you for sharing.

God Bless,

Amy said...
