DIY Ground Level Deck Tour

We are finally finished building our ground level deck. I can’t tell you in words alone how much I love this space, so let me share some pictures.

For now we are keeping it simple because we must wait six months before painting it. To style it, I pulled together so decoration and furniture we already owned. 

Between this year and next year, we’ll be on the lookout for an outdoor rug, curtains, more seating and buffet area.
The deck sits right beside my flower garden and overlooks my back yard. It’s a shaded space which makes eating and spending time outdoors bearable in the hot Carolina heat.

Here are some more pictures of the decor and view.

We’re planning to paint the roof of the deck white as well next year and add lighting. For now, we are enjoying the deck and just love the way it turned out.

  1. It looks beautiful!! Just be careful adding a rug. I have an outdoor rug on my deck which is super easy to clean. When I lifted it up, I noticed the wood was starting to get mildew on it. Now I have to pressure clean it. We took the rug off until winter, when the rain stops. But great job!

  2. OH WOW!!!I am TOTALLY SPEECHLESS… It LOOKS AWESOME!!!! And it ONLY cost you $250 bucks… YOU CAN'T beat that… I have a similar deck with bottom being just grass and dirt. I have been seriously thinking about turning it into a ground level deck… Thank you for this post.
