New updated pictures of the deck and 'decked out' and ready for Spring!

Back deck renovation, we wanted to spend @ $2000.00 and wanted to go from SLAB to FAB! Back deck renovation, wanted to spend $2000.00 and wanted to go from SLAB to FAB! Most of the costs involved were the material costs and adding a a couple feet of length of cement to the already existing slab. We used clearance slate from and a palette of flagstone we found on clearance to make a pathway into the yard. The pics are without the furniture cushions and all dolled up for when we use it but you get the idea we also changed the glass table for a rot iron one that works much better and matches all the other furniture.
AFTER - we also added a couple of feet in length to the cement slab and one cement step up to the stairs.
After- Firepit ready!
Added even more landscaping and are doing to every year.

    Good job! Love this. I have a back patio slab with a top with corrugated fiberglass (or whatever it is). I never thought about putting down slate or tile. My patio just always looks dirty and uncared for.
