    My Intex Pool and how I fixed it up

    This is My Intex that I've had for about 3 years. I wanted to share my pictures because I am always scouring the internet for pictures of other Intex pools to see how they decorated theirs. I have a couple of DIY things that I have done that I will also share. My pool isn't the most awesome by any means but it keeps us cool and let's us have fun. The extra steps in my pool are walk in steps for a deck. I haven't added a deck so I bought them ($30) off craigslist and my kids can enjoy using the steps as a jumping platform. Hope you enjoy and get some ideas. 20150605_131944.jpg

    You should be able to upload the other 2 pics to photobucket and copy the IMG codes for each pic and paste them here.

    You need to paste the link that has IMG tags around it ... might say for BBCode.

    Your pool looks great. We have two sets of steps too and I wish I had gotten the second set a long time ago. The kids have a lot more places to lounge as mermaids.
