More Pool Projects

My handy husband Paul has built a gate between the pool house and the sand volleyball court. He added palm leaves panels, matching the outdoor shower enclosure, complete with pineapple finials.

The outdoor shower has privacy panels. No need for complete privacy since we are on 26 acres.  We cannot see any neighbors.

Here is the gate Paul built before the hardware was added.

The gate hardware is added. Now we can keep the dogs contained in the pool area.
I like to know where they are. Now when I am working around the pool area or relaxing, the Dante and  Bella are right where I can see them.

This is the back of the outdoor shower.  We wanted to match this look on the other side of the pool house.

Next up is the towel rack for the beach towels. I found a wave pattern online and Paul cut the board into waves.  He painted it and then attached the mermaid hooks.

We thought it would be cool to add some waves to the top. The towels are held by mermaids in all different colors.  When the Great Grandkids visit, they can pick a color.

Since Paul added waves to the towel bar, we decided they would look great on the outdoor hutch below the mermaid.

Paul says the hutch looks like a display case.  It works for that as well as a station for appetizers, etc.

 That's a wrap! Stay tuned for a Summer Tablescape Blog Hop on June 7th.
