I know this may not fully qualify for this site and maybe should be on homerefurbers. But just joined and wanted to get something up. Plus this site is where I will be spending my time.
Did this a couple years ago as part of an entire backyard landscaping project. After installing the rock retaining wall and flagstone patio I decided the existing deck, built prior to our purchase, was a poorly constructed eye sore and needed to go. I wanted to make something artistic and functional (the artistic part is kind of why I posted this on here, plus the only pics I had on hand). Used composite decking and enough stainless steal hardware to insure that this will be standing way longer than I will ever live at the house. Also put LED lights in the steps which tie into the low voltage system that I installed. A really nice effect all the way around.
Next projects posted will be more inline with furniture and cabinetry.

Great job nice details, makes a deck look great instead of just str8 boards.

Nicely done. Dig the LEDs too. You should post on HomeRefurbers too with some night shots showing off the LEDs.
