So Long, Sweet Summer

Well, summer is officially over and guess what? I never posted a picture of my balcony transformation! It gets worse: I never took an "after" pic! Wups!

We were able to get several candles, chairs, planters, and other outdoor items on the cheap {or for FREE}, so the project ended up costing even less than we anticipated. The hubs and I have enjoyed several meals and late-night card games on our pretty new balcony. Thanks for all of your suggestions and encouragement throughout the project!

Here is a picture of the deck in the middle of the transformation:

Notice the GIANT bird?! One day, while I was finishing up some Grad work in our Guest Room/Office, Ben suddenly shouted my name and told me I had to get out there, quick! I ran out to the Living Room to find him staring out the window at the HUGE/amazing/scary creature. Is it a hawk? Whatever it is, it is MASSIVE, and we caught it lounging on our deck railing about 5 different times throughout the summer.

At least he seemed to appreciate our deck transformation. :)
