What an exhausting weekend! We got some hard work done in the back yard but still can’t get in the pool since the plaster is curing in an acid bath. Hopefully it will be neutralized tomorrow and then all the pool chemicals will be added and we will be swimming by mid-week! Here are some photos of the progress:
Full of water!
Pump is on and the water is circulating. You can see the plaster is darker than when it was first filled.
My mom helped with landscaping the backside of the pool. We planted some fan palms and irises. We still have to get the landscape fabric down and a layer of creek rock on top.
Hubby and Dad put up a fence to hide the equipment and A/C.
I decided on this patio set from World Market. Thanks, Mom, for generously gifting it to us! I’m sure they will get almost as much use out of it as we will! I snagged the big canopy umbrella from Big Lots and the lounge chairs from Academy.
This stripe fabric on the cushion is actually an outdoor table cloth I found at Kohl’s. I’m trying to decide if I want to make slip covers for the cushions with it or leave them white for now and then maybe cover them in a more neutral fabric this fall. Any opinions??
Up next, the flagstone walkway leading to the pool. Hubby and I got about 3/4 of the way through and hope to have it finished in the next couple of days.
