AKA: Ding dong the wicked pavers are dead! … I mean, we finished laying the pavers for our new patio extension! Yippee!!
If you’re tuning in for the first time, check out our last post on paver prep. It was certainly a process, but let’s be honest, everyone likes a little more space to hang out in! Josh and I spent most of last Thursday evening putting the rest of these puppies down, leveling them out as we went.
We used a rubber mallet to make sure all the pavers lined up correctly and to help level them out as needed. Every time we used the mallet, it seemed to spark the interest of this little guy…
Pretty good for our first paver attempt, eh?
Progress, people, progress!
But we still have a little way to go still! We’ve got more plans in the works for the space… First thing’s first, we’ve got to cover up those stains in the concrete from when the house was built.
Yucky, icky, muddy stains. We tried our darn-dist to get that staining out with the power washer, but it’s beyond help in that department. So we’ve got a trick up our sleeve to do away with it all together- that secret is Behr Premium DeckOver! We are so stoked for this product and how it’s going to look- we’ve been battling the weather here in Columbus and it’s put a damper on our plans. But as soon as we get our window of clear weather, you bet we’ll be getting our paint on!
Next up, finding some way to hide our meters that are conveniently located in our patio area… The trick here will be that it hides the meters, but can be easily located/opened by the meter readers… we’re definitely open to suggestions…
But other than that, just hanging some cafe lights and adding some bug repellant potted plants back there, we’re just about done with our little patio makeover.
But as for now, we’re enjoying it as it is.
