We finished the deck and ramada...this is how it looked before:
I like the curve against the straight line of the house.
Next summer, we'll put in a flagstone patio.
Spent some time looking for comfortable furniture....found an ad on Craigslist for vintage cast iron chairs. They were very comfortable and I knew the white iron would help tie in the white vinyl windows.
After I paid for the chairs, the gentleman I bought them from asked me, "Would you like to know a little history about them?" I said, sure. He told me he had purchased them from Red Button's estate.
If true, I now own a little bit of Hollywood history.
How's that for a Craigslist bargain?
