My husband got a pool for the kids. You know, those large easy set up, weirdly rounded pools. Yeah, so I set it up with the kids (nearly fainted from the heat :/) and it took 2.5 hours to fill. And they’ve been having a blast in it ever since.
We set it up on the concrete so it won’t leave a huge round area of dead grass in our yard.
We had just cut the grass, so their feet were full of grass clippings, I left a bucket of water and a stool for them to rinse their feet and hop in the pool. They still manage somehow to get it dirty in there, so I’m on fishing duty the whole time.
I also hung up some hooks for them to hang stuff up, I hate seeing towels on the floor.
So now that most of our day is spent outside, the area surrounding the pool wasn’t that comfortable or appealing to sit for long. So I spruced it up a bit.
We got the sectionals from the same auction I get most of my amazon inventory from. Can’t beat $119 for both. The only problem was that they came with the wrong cushions. and they are weirdly measured. One is long and narrow, other is short and deep.
So I tried to find some cushions that would work but it was so hard. At the end I used regular chair cushions I found on sale at Walmart, and a chaise lounge chair cushion for the other one.
See the white wall thingy? My dad helped set it up as a privacy fence and I will be planted some of those pretty flower climbing plants to cover that whole side of the house.
I think it looks good for now, the outdoor rug pulls it together and it added much needed color and it’s more comfy to sit and watch the kids swim in the pool. I might add a few touches later but we will see.
Where else would I be able to find ready made outdoor cushions? I kinda wanted the thicker ones, but whatever works…
