In 2013, Mom hornswoggled Eric into putting lattice with a border on the outside of the patio. The screens were being beat up pretty bad. This was to keep them safer. He did a great job! Mom tried to incorporate an ocean them. Decorating this place was tough!

We had such high hopes of totally enclosing it, making it square footage to the house. We had a few contractors come out and the price was so much more than we had budgeted. So..................
PINTEREST! and a marvelous blog Old Things New by Patti!! (she actually wrote me an email after I thanked her for blog post)
This is her photo of her patio, using paint drop cloths that changed our sadness to an open air patio to happiness!
Go and see her transformation! It is amazing, and we were able to follow it to our patio!
We cleaned EVERYthing out, but the pool table and the refrigerator! Mom took a photo and then went to work with her photoshop to show Tony what it could look like!
Photoshopped using different add on's from the internet! We did wind up buying that actual table set, and the blinds that are on the windows. The sheers become paint drop cloths and our fans are white!
And now the after!!!
