  • My FREE Slate Circle Patio!, My husband used to work for a roofing company.  When the company decided to move to a new location, they needed to clear all of the materials off their lot in a short period of time.  They discovered a random pile of slate behind one of the buildings, and as it was not on a pallet, some was damaged, and it was an odd amount, they told us we could take away as much as we liked.  So we did!  And here's what we did with it., Patios & Decks Design

  • From Drab to Fab ...Our Backyard Oasis, We purchased our first new home back in November and everything was perfect...except for the yard.  The deck was a great size to entertain, however it had not been treated or stained in years.  It looked weathered, gray and was splintering.  We had a limited budget and watched countless episodes of Yard Crashers for tons of great ideas.  We wanted to create an oasis where we could relax and entertain and feel like we were at a tropical resort!, Patios & Decks Design

  • Our Lady of Relaxation: a Backyard Deck with Gothic-Arched Pergola, Our little eighth-of-an-acre plot in Los Angeles came with a very small, 20'x20' back yard.  It sat unused for years.  This Spring, I decided to re-do the whole thing as one big deck with a pergola cover.  I did all of the work myself -- fastening every board, setting every stone, sewing together the sections of shade fabric, bending and welding every piece of steel.  Everything.  

I think DIY-ers will enjoy the story -- especially when you get to the point where I had to find a way to 'levitate' the entire roof assembly of the pergola seven feet into the air with only my two hands, some spare lumber, a home-made pulley and a cordless drill.

There is more greenery in the deck's future -- and there are some parts that are still not finished.  But after three months of hard work, the thing is now up and running as a place for my family to -- finally -- spend some time together in what was once the back yard., Patios & Decks Design

  • decoupage , This piece was mostly decoupaged with napkins I reinforced with plain paper and saran wrap and a few on hand scrap-booking sheets. I achieved the crackle with Elmer's  glue and acrylic paint.  After muli coats of mod podge  had cured and sealed paper seams down, I poured few coats of resin giving both shelves dimensional look as well as durability.  , Other Spaces Design
