New patio

Old patio:

New Patio:
 I got the table from World Market, the chairs from Hayneedle and the rug from Homegoods. We put Soci Yukon pavers which always feel cool over the concrete and improved the grade of the patio itself so it does not flood when it rains, which had been a huge problem. Cleaned the glass on the overhead light/fan for the first time.
The kitchen has a sink, grill, Green Egg and a fridge. That counter height stool will have to be resold, it had incorrect measurements on Wayfair and is too tall for this counter. A shame since I really liked them and it was a great deal on an open box item. Still searching for my perfect stools.
We got this steel firepit "snuffer" so we can use the pit as a table during the summer, but easily remove it if needed. The rocker chairs are super comfy from a very high class store called Big Lots.

We really needed to get rid of the sectional since rats were constantly making homes behind it and black widow spiders were always laying eggs under it. Yuck! The table is such a nice improvement, and Helaman did a great job stringing the lights. We are out here all the time, as there is plenty of seating and the kids like playing outside again if everyone is out here (and snacks and drinks are accessible). We also got one of those Dynatraps to get the bugs which has done a good job so far, though we are not at the peak of bug season. I still want to get a nice big artificial tree for the corner and a large clock.
