Design Happens readers are more than just lovers of fabulous design — they’re true outdoor weekend warriors. Deck stain! Water features! Trellises! Oh my! In our May 6th giveaway, we wanted you to tell us how you get your outdoor space party ready. From the responses we got, it’s clear that a few of you have a ways to go before your deck or patio is ready for a big shin-dig, while most of you were glad to be done with the tough stuff and in the midst of putting the finishing touches on your outdoor party pads. Our winner, stylebyladyg, moved to Georgia from the UK last year and has “ been renovating my home every since. The deck definitely needs some TLC — seating, dining table, accessories and plants. We’re almost there!”
Stylebyladyg, we hope you enjoy sitting back and admiring your work around your new Frontgate fire pit. Can we come over for s’mores? We’re only a state away.
