Yesterday evening the patio paint was dry, and so Chloe and I moved the baker’s rack and the iron table base back on the patio.
I had been sanding the sealing the wooden top, which my daughters and I built three years ago, and C helped me carry that to the patio and we plonked it on the iron base.
For the past
million 15…maybe 20 years, I’ve had functional but rather ugly green plastic restaurant chairs on the patio. Then, the other day, C and I discovered a lovely red chair at the local thrift for about $3 and we bought it.
Right there and then I decided I needed more red in my life! 😀
So today I found one red, wooden Ikea chair and two really ugly black and gold iron chairs with a nice structure.
Half of a can of red Tremclad later…and just a tiny bit of wind carried paint which painted my feet a nice shade of sunburn…and Voila! (Don’t worry, I was wearing a mask and didn’t breathe any paint.)
Then, a trip to the fabric store yielded this lovely outdoor cloth for $5! Now I just have to figure out what to do about the seat itself. I stopped at the foam shop, but the quickly drying outdoor foam would cost about $100 for the two seats! Yeah, I don’t think so!
So here you have the beginning of the patio dress-up for the garden show.
Yeah! I love it too!
I love the privacy screen, and the different chairs and the riot of flowers in the blue and green pots.
We’re expecting rain over night and for the long weekend and it’s just as well because I have to get back up there into the studio and paint, otherwise it’s going to turn into an
Art in the Garden weekend! Lol
