There are a few things we still have planned: We want to build a bench for seating to the right side of the table that can also provide storage. I am thinking that the brick of the fireplace should be stained and I would like to find a few interesting pieces to bolt into the brick...ceramic animal heads or vintage platters. I'm also thinking of adding a wall mounted fountain over the buffet/ serving table (which you can see to the left of the sliding glass doors). The bigger project with be a structure over the patio. I know what I want and am willing to wait for it.
At any rate, I am thrilled with the results and am enjoying mornings and evenings out here. A big thank you to my family for their help and my husband for his hard work.
