The pavers are all laid out and the patio is nice and level. Before they were uneven and water would pool into the middle. I wanted to try a different layout for fun and am happy with the square look. Unfortunately many of the pavers were too busted to reuse (here) so the patio is a little smaller than the original. It's the perfect size for a table and chairs. The giant kitty litter box next to the patio will probably be filled with gravel/ rock. A space for lounge chairs or maybe a fire pit. Our fire pit died and we miss having one.
As you can see in the photo below, I started painting the iron posts a hi-gloss black (Rustoleum).
