a work in progress...
We just finished a mini make-over
of our patio and pool area,
and now comes the fun part,
The photos I took are a work in progress.
I'm currently looking for a
7-8 foot long rectangular dining table
and am having cushions made in Sunbrella's Sand color.
Pillows will be muted shades of blues, greens and tans.
I need all the inspiration I can get.
I'd love to hear your suggestions!
I think a bright punch of color would be fun...

Master-mason, Randy Speer,
helped us create
the plan we had imagined,
we're so happy with the results!
He added the fire pit in a dark gray concrete finish
and built a new counter to match for our bbq station.

Now we have room for four bar stools.
He also poured a new patio area
for our lounge chairs that previously was an small,
unused patch of grass.
And, one of favorite parts of the make-over
was getting rid of a large brick planter
that was between our house and bbq.
|the former grassy area.|
In its place, we built a zig-zagged brick seating area
that I call my little "Laguna Cafe".
It was inspired by all the quirky and fun brick work
and styles I love seeing in Laguna Beach.
I added two small granite and iron cafe tables,
and a vintage wrought iron sign
that we found at an antique store in Pismo Beach.
