    Anyone got a cool deck? Looking at renovating mine and would like some ideas. Our kids play ball in the back all the time and there is a 6 acre park behind our house where youth teams are constantly practicing. I call the deck my luxury suite. Thinking about putting a fold-up bar around the railing of it facing the yard with some cup holders in it. Eventually will probably put a permanent roof on it as well.
    Just looking for some ideas now if anyone has a cool one they wouldn't mind sharing pics of.

    I will not be posting a pic of my deck. You will have to trust me when I say I have a big deck

    I think staining decks is great.

    I built this one on my house (by myself, all of it even the glass railings). Pretty contemporary and matches the addition. Not really an idea thing, just showing off.

    You know, that's a nice sized deck. It'd probably look even bigger if you trimmed the greenery around it though!

    That's really nice. I probably won't be making ours any bigger at this point but am looking for ideas to incorporate a bar area into it

    Do a google image search for "Deck Bars".
    Not exactly sure what you're looking for, but maybe something like this?
