Steve trimmed off the rotten ends...
and we ended up with a fair number of usable boards. By the way, won't it be fabulous when we paint the garage?!
We decided to go for a free-form shape defined by the boards. Jennifer screwed the boards down with screws we salvaged from this property when we bought it in 2010! (There were A LOT of screws spilled all around the chicken coop.)
Ta da! We finished the little deck and we love it. It's a perfect place to have morning coffee in the sunshine and soon it will be surrounded by hundreds of blooms.
