Revamping a backyard deck the DIY style to add color and charm for a cozy and inviting space.

We had a backyard deck that was screaming for some attention and color. I wanted to make the area to be cozy, inviting and have some color. So we took a weathered Teak wood bench, an old window frame, some really weathered Adirondack chairs, some wood, power tools and lots of paint and created a wonderful space on the
deck. We're very pleased with how it turned out.

    Not sure if I missed it or what but after reading the blog I still didn't see directions on putting color on windows after you like frosted them. Is it actually painted on or cellophane colors.

    HI, I like what you did! What is the paint color you used for the yellow chair?
