Never Finished!

I am going to my first party today!  I am linking up with Serenity Now's Show Me the Progress Party.  I hope I arrive altogether! 
It has taken approximately three years to get to this point. 

As you can see we still have got to seal it underneath.
Then the job of painting and hanging my ceiling fan.
(Already got that purchased.)  Just waiting.....

This was the beginning stages.  The whole family got
involved on this part.  (I made the tea!)

Contemplating what I wanted it to look like.
(Yes, that is hail that you see.)


I hope you have enjoyed looking at all the hard work.
I didn't even mention all the staining, cleaning, and  sealing.
But, it has all been worth it!
Let me just say High Maintenance.  You are not seeing all
of the deck.  It consists of over 900 sq. feet.

What a great space!! I bet you have a wonderful time entertaining out there. It will be even better when you get your ceiling fan...and some more tea. ;) Thanks so much for linking up with me. Hope you have fun visiting around with the other participants. Don't forget to swing back by and let me know what you think about my Progress. ;)

Oh wow!!!! That is gorgeous! I love it! Even though it takes a lot of time to get projects like this finished they are SO worth it, aren't they? I can just imagine sitting there drinking an icey lemonade! So Excellent!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me earlier today! You are very sweet! So glad to have met you!

Amanda, so glad that I was able to make it to the party. It was quite a challenge, since it was my first time really posting pictures and linking up. Thanks for hosting.

Mary Joy,
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, lemonade would be refreshing, but the temp and humidity are really unbearable right now. I am so ready to for fall.
