Our Backyard (The Man Cave)

Summer is here! My hubs latest project has been our backyard patio, for those of you who have read my blog before you already know my hubs is the jack of all trades and once he decides on a project you may as well consider it done. For whatever reason my hubs decided that he wanted to stain our patio and so he did, and he did it in under two days. And I must say it turned out pretty fantastic.
Before:


My makeshift outdoor counter =)

After:
I added the pillows tonight =)
This is still a work in progress, we ordered the granite slab for the top today, this was my husbands solution to my makeshift counter =)

And our yard is totally ready, well almost totally I still would like some more flowers in the back and the hubs would like a tv (which I have told him is completely unnecessary, but he begs to differ, so I am sure we will have one soon). He claims that since our house isn't quite big enough for him to have a man cave inside he will turn the outside into a man cave. Next step according to the hubs, a huge overhang so we can be on the patio in all weather.
