Spruced up the backyard/pool area

One of the desires of our hearts is to use our home to be a blessing to others. We love to entertain and living in south Texas it is especially nice having a pool. So with this years tax return we decided to spruce up our favorite place to entertain - the backyard/pool area!  We had a great space with lots of potential, it just needed a little TLC. I had some ideas but then had a friend aid me with a few decisions on details. We already had a patio table/chairs and grill. So we added a conversation seating, sunscreen fabric over the pergola, fun decorative lighting, trash can, cooler, pool toy storage, pots & plants and a really cool DIY fold up serving table. 

Here's a few pics to show our progress!
