twinkle lights, cool air and pretty shade from overstock.com
hi sweet friends! i wanted to share a few more fun details happening with the pool slash pool house slash barn porch:) not sure if you can tell in pictures that i have shared (probably not because most are quite cropped in because well, everything is far from finished) that the pool house attaches to the barn, and the pool deck attaches to the barn porch. when the whole pool dream started, at first i was kinda dissapointed that the pool had to be kind of far from the house. this decision was made for us by codes, the pool had to be so many feet from the septic system (country life;)...but now i am actually happy it worked out that way. i love the view of the pool and the view while you are in the pool..just that it is out there on it's own...kinda like a pond, which i love! soooo, all this to get to that i also love that it is by the barn to be able to use the barn porch (that we added on to the 100 year old barn almost 8 years ago). have i lost you yet? so 100 year old barn we restored 10 years ago, attached to 8 year old barn porch attached to new pool house...all connected and all now part of our 'pool party zone'. just another example of how His plan is always so much better than our plan! so since the barn porch is attached to the pool deck (as in a few feet from the chaise lounge chairs), i know it will get lots and lots of use this summer. so i started on the hunt for the perfect fan. to cool down the porch when we are all melting come august. so after lots to time online if found the perfect fan. the look i wanted and great reviews on the function...perfect combination. it is from overstock.com....so you can click HERE to go and check out any of their other great products...they have about a million ;) isn't it pretty? it rotates 360 degrees to get some major air moving...which is what we will need out here. it is the fanimation extroidinaire and you can go and check it out by clicking HERE HERE HERE. we have had a few umbrellas in the past...that were not the sunbrella fabric and that were not the aluminum poles...and by the end of the season the canvas fabric was covered in mildew and a couple times a good storm broke the wood poles right in half....so i am so excited about the weather resistant fabric and the aluminum pole(insert lady in red dance dancing;). i just wanted an umbrella that was beautiful and worry free...and this one definitely fits the bill!
