The backyard sitting area is finally finished enough to show. While viewing the pics, ignore the ugly concrete which will be painted or stained after hurricane season. The chairs are from World market, and I've centered them around the mantle we found on the stree. In order to give my self incentive to finish, we decided to host a party for my sister and friends who are in town for jazz fest. The party starts at 8:30, and I still haven't bought the adult beverages, so I think you can determine how well that whole deadline thing is working.
