A few weeks ago, I decided to see if our small patio set would fit up on the deck. We rarely used it where it was, so there was no hurt in trying it out somewhere else. Surprisingly enough, it fit perfectly and we instantly had what felt like a new "room" to enjoy.
I bought a cheap (but gorgeous!) outdoor woven mat to make it a little more home-y and filled the old flower boxes. A candle lantern and houseplant on the table and we were set.
I've also been wanting to add a screen door for a while now and when I starting researching prices, I realized that you could get an unfinished wooden one for a measly $20 at Home Depot. SO worth it. Now we can leave the door open and let in the breeze. It also gives Levi the ability to go in and out and I can monitor him from the kitchen if he wants to play outside on the deck.
With the Sea Kettle being a relatively cozy little house, it's been fun to take advantage of some new space and have a new place to read, eat meals and play..at least until winter sets in!
