Weekend Production Line - Mosaic Monday

I'm linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday at her blog Little Red House today. (And yes, I'd already posted this when I noticed that my mosaic below gave me the opportunity to join in the link.)

Ladies and Gentlemen!
I present to you my front deck!
.

And here is the bottom of the stairs..

My daughter says it looks strange to have the 3 different colors. I, on the other hand, think it looks grand! But then, I'm not just looking at it with my physical eyes: I'm also looking at it through the eyes of my bank account (which loved the discounted prices). AND it's done! Just the side deck platform to do now.
.
That was a hard-graft Friday! So, I spent Saturday lolly-gagging and doing what I pleased: a little yard saling, a great lunch at my favorite cafe, an evening of music out with friends. And that was grand!

.
I spent Sunday with my garden furniture ........ and a few cheap paint brushes, sponge rollers and numerous cans of paint..


Ahhhh! A most productive and yet totally enjoyable weekend!
.
Time for an early bed and the remainder of my book!
Goodnight sweet friends!

I think it all looks just great. I know that had to have been a lot of work. I need to do my deck here at the camper sometime yet this year. My SIL though has a sprayer that he uses to coat it and does it for me so I won't be suffering the way you did, or at least I hope not.

I kinda like the steps of many colors. And, I love those boot flower pots. Hope things are cooler up your way than they are here.

Best,
Bonnie

Flowers and fresh paint make almost anything prettier. I love the colour of your chairs.

I like the different colors. They set each other off beautifully. I like how you set the boots out. Too cute! I'm glad you got to get out and have some fun after all that hard labor. You sure did deserve it.

Hi Sandy, I like the cheerful colors you picked (or that picked you...). My swing in the back yard is looking a little faded. Hmmmmm?
