I finally decided to forget about cushions for the chairs and instead concentrate on the coffee table, baker's rack and potted plants.
Yesterday I was at a local antique mall and found a small garden cherub and thought maybe he would work on the coffee table.
He has that old weathered look I like, as if he'd been in the garden for many years.
When I was at Hobby Lobby the other day, I found this stone looking base... half price.. :) and decided to use it under my hurricane candle holder.
I decided to use oak leaf hydrangeas in the vase. For some reason, certain colors look strange on the black granite, so I thought I'd to stick with white for now.
Oh, let me show you the coffee table. I made it a couple of years ago, from a table that a neighbor had thrown out for the trash collector. lol
My husband thought I was crazy dragging that old table home.
It had bronzey-goldish wrought iron legs and a wooden and plaster top. Well, it sat for almost a year while I tried to think of what to do with it.
Finally I decided to go to a granite and tile shop to see what I could find. They had pieces that were left over and the only size that worked was the black. So I took off the top, painted the legs black and added the granite. Then I bought new black chairs and glider.
I know... I've jumped to a totally different tablescape but I wanted to offer you a snack and show you a different look. :)
Doesn't this Efferve' orangeade, from France, look yummy? Let's open it and see what how it tastes. Would you like a cookie?
Thanks for stopping by and letting me show you what I've been working on. There'll be more to come in later posts.
I'm headed over to Kim's @ Savvy Southern Style for
See you there.
