Looks great. Our Oklahoma winds would rearrange those pillows. And our frequent and unpredictable rain/thunderstorms wound soak and stain the cushions & pillows. I know I should take mine in or cover them religiously as a precaution. But I don’t.
Deck looks great, CJ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wind will be a problem. The place we bought the furniture assured us it will hold up. He says he only takes his cushions in at the end of the season and he just handed down a 17 year old set of this brand to his daughter and new son in law.
He sounds like he could be a politician or at least a used car salesman with those lines. :)
Very nice deck and furniture, looks comfy!
Great looking deck CJ. Looks perfect for entertaining.
OMG, we spent the entire evening after supper on the deck. This is the best decision we've made in a long time. It is so nice. There's room for the whole family, its comfortable, the fire is awesome after it gets dark. We made S'Mores and the adults had a few bourbon mules. Well worth it.
This thread is useless without more pictures of the finished deck
The one pick does look awesome and glad you're enjoying it so much. If I can figure out the wasp issue we'd be using ours more.
Nice setup. The wind here is really bad so I have to lash down my gas grill and smoker so it does not go in the pool.
We get high winds and I've had gas grills blow around before but the two units I have now are both on the heavy side. I set up an alert on the highly recommended Dark Sky app for high winds overnight. I'll post some more pictures later today.
That looks awesome. I'd probably stain that pad brown while it's new and clean. :D
Oh wow, hadn't even thought of that. I will talk to the wife about it. Recommend a concrete stain?
I might talk to the guy you bought your deck furniture from. I bet he knows a guy. You can DIY it with various products, but they can do some trick shit with concrete - make it look like marble, match your trim, match your deck. As nice as that looks, I'd get a pro and pick what you want.
If you want to DIY head up to lowes or Home Depot and see what they have. I don't favor anything in particular. But brown would look great there.
Just more $ you won't get back though... :D
I agree staining /glazing will “finish” the look. Sometimes It’s recommended to
Let the freshly poured concrete cure for 28-60 days depending on weather and how it was poured. I’ve stained and glazed concrete in the past. Ask your contractor. Or ask a local concrete stain/glaze and stamping contractor. And maybe paint the white base supports.... or not.
Regardless, it looks great. And it sounds like it’s a success.
Carl is 100% right, and exactly why you want to talk to the furniture guy.
You don't care about the concrete. It's concrete. You care about how it looks. And that guy does too. And he deals with clients that do too.
So call that guy. And I'd probably stain the bottom brown too. And paint the pyramids. I don't think they'll take stain. But talk to a professional.
Honestly, even if you leave it, it looks great.
Nice looking job. But I am curious about the decking running to a center seam and not random lengths all the way across like is usually done. Some issue with the framing vs downstairs openings?
