Another Project Completed

Besides my husband building Pottery Barn knockoff tables, he was busy working on another outside project.  This one was a work in progress that started in September and finished just in time for Christmas.  The back of our house has an upstairs deck.  We don't use it very much because it gets the hot sun in the afternoon during the summer.  Home Improvement time again!

We added a roof over the deck.
 My husband tore out all of the old railing and we were going to install black wrought iron but we decided against it.  Instead, we recycled the old railing.  My husband once again put his talents to work.  He redesigned the railing using all of the old wood.  
It looked brand new after a coat of fresh paint.
Now we can use the upstairs deck during the hot summertime.
This is the winter view from the now COVERED upstairs deck.  But wait, there's more.
This pile of wood laying on our garage floor became the ceiling of our covered deck.
I stained all of the wood.  My husband then installed it.  See those boxes stacked in the background, that is another project that I will share next.

I love how it turned out.  It makes the deck seem like a room addition.  Now I can hardly wait till spring so I can do a little decorating on the COVERED deck.
