Outdoor Living Room + Deck Update at Hathorn Hall

An upcycled art piece that the hubby and I made for the new outdoor living room. Stay tuned to find out what this "HOME" sign is hiding.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from home renovation projects + tips to random road trips. Today on the blog, I am giving a quick update on the new outdoor living room project + showing off what I wore to a meeting (I am taking a little inspiration from my daughter’s blog.)

I have had so many asking and emailing about what is happening with the new deck that I decided to get out there and snap a few photos with my Samsung Galaxy S5–because I am not cool enough for the S6 *wink* It is not that I haven’t wanted to give y’all an update. Bless! Between travels and the weather, there has not been an opportunity to finish the deck or to take nice photos.

When I got home this afternoon, the sun was shining brightly; and I immediately whipped out my phone and got y’all a few photos. Please excuse all the shadows and such. Y’all know that I am not a professional *wink*

The walls are painted and the floors are stained. Waiting on a few dry days so we can seal the cedar shakes on the columns. Fingers crossed that it will be soon!

I am planning a big blog reveal with all the details about the colors we used, the furniture the hubby built, and more. So, stay tuned!

We wanted to have as much light as possible without blinding the neighbors at night *wink*

A sneak peek at one of the furniture pieces that the hubby built...actually, you can also catch a glimpse at the bar.

A storage area for all the hubby's grilling things. The deck design allows for a kitchen area + living space.

There is still a little work left to do, but I am thinking that we are getting pretty close to having a deck christening party *big smile*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we took a peek at the latest happenings on the outdoor living space + deck.
