We gave away our old outdoor dining set the other day.
I have no photos of said same, which is just as well.
Meanwhile, one wonders at this point:
what are we to do when we want to dine al fresco?
Luckily, I had a light bulb moment when I spied this table,
languishing unused in our cellar hideaway.
I thought — wouldn’t it make an unusual + charming outdoor table?
People. That very shade of green is crazy in style now.
And who doesn’t love the enamel table top?
Within minutes, G.O. + I carried our table outside
+ set it in front of our garden shed.
Please allow me to point out a couple items.
That DOOR remains in its awful before state, which I hate.
Fingers crossed we’ll re-do them yet this year.
And please may I point out our shed’s roof finials?
I was after a colonial Williamsburg vibe at the time.
But back to the table.
Soon I started gathering a few things,
hoping that a quaint vignette would ensue.
Check this out.
It’s one of those weed/cedar trees that are all over the yard!
I thought it would look great in a pot,
but shockingly, G.O. predicted it would never live.
So far, so good, but there is winter, looming.
Next — these vintage folding chairs were languishing unused in our garden shed:
I have to say that I love a good chair project
+ I’ve done plenty of them.
For these chairs, I decided that I’d sew some simple cushions,
using my go-to fabric — the blue ticking stripe cotton.
I had hand-stenciled them with my go-to motif,
the red circle + white plus sign.
You can just see a peak of the pretty pale blue liner fabric:
I decided to attach the chair pad with ties
that I’d sewn with the same blue + white ticking stripe.
I’ll be sure + keep you posted re: our shed doors.
Stay tuned, later this wee, I hope!
