If you are following us on Instagram or Facebook you may have noticed that we are in the process of designing and building a deck for our new home. Also, this week Menards is having one of their 11% rebate sales, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces of deck decor.
If you're not familiar with Menards 11% rebate sales let me just quickly break it down for you. Anything you buy at their 11% rebate sale you receive a rebate ticket on the bottom of your receipt, fill out a form and mail in both your receipt ticket and information sheet. Within a few weeks you will receive (via mail) a rebate check, redeemable only at Menards. Obviously the more you spend during the 11% sale the more rebate money you will earn. It's my favorite time to make large purchases because I like to use those rebate checks to fund more projects for our home.
Here are the items that are currently in my online shopping cart for our deck.
1. OVE Decors LED 24 Light String light- I love the whimsical feel of string lights, and typically I don't opt for LED lighting because I find they are not as warm as standard lighting. But these string lights have really stuck out to me. Not only do they offer a warm glow but they are constructed with a strong weatherproof PVC so we can keep them up all year long.
2. Patriot Lighting Talent 9" small black 1-Light Outdoor Wall Light w/ Copper Accent Arm- Say that one 10x fast. This is a modern spin on a traditional barn light and I just can't get over the beautiful copper accent arm that will match the copper post caps on our picket fence. My only wish is that it were a little bit larger, but since we are using string lights on the entire deck I think we will be able to pull off having a smaller light.
3. Designers Image Beachcomber Blue Indoor/Outdoor Rug- I always end up using area rugs to mark off separate sections of large rooms and I feel like your outdoor space is no different. I plan on using bright blue as an accent color against our very dull gray house so this outdoor rug is the perfect addition for our outdoor space.
4. POLYWOOD Chippendale 7-Piece Dining Set- O BOY! I LOVE THIS! The Slate gray makes me giddy. I adore the midcentury design of the chairs and the fact that it seats 6 is great for our large family.
5. Backyard Creations Aspen 4-Piece Deep Seating Patio Set- This blue set ads that pop of blue I was mentioning earlier as well as makes it seem like an outdoor living room. It will make a great spot on the deck for drinks w/ friends or just reading a book.
