I too woulda paid a buck for that pool and asked for them to throw in the chairs LOL. A little Krylon and a deck will make it look great and the chairs are always useful in the shop for those "bench racing" sessions.
Yeah Jim, your pool rocks! My brother hooked up with the pool maintence guy at the country club he works at, guy thinks he can get me a nice used one. If not, I have found some on Ebay and online as well MUCH more reasonable than the local pool people. Tree guy came today and left the bid to remove this HUGE ugly tree thats right in the way (its dead anyways)
So maybe in 30 days, I might have good news and maybe pics! As much as I want it, the deck will probably have to wait.
I really appreciate all the replies here, its almost as good a summer topic as the BBq one PDad started.
