Hope your weekend was good. We had a nice 4th, the weather was great, and I spent a little time Saturday, working on the baker's rack on the deck.
I've found, that if I don't keep it decorated, it ends up being a catch-all for things I'm too lazy to take to the shed.
I've been in blue and white mode for the last few posts.
Love it for Summer.
I had some leftover blue paint from painting the watering can, so I used it on an old metal tub I got a couple of years ago.
It was rusting so badly on the inside that I almost threw it out. Hopefully, the paint will make it last through Summer.
Here's how I pulled everything together:
On the top shelf, I filled a white ceramic bowl with white starfish, sand dollars and sea biscuits, then topped it with an abalone shell.
Little blue and white votive holders and blue shells sit on coasters.
On the second shelf, a white melamine tray holds blue bottles, more starfish, a clam shell, cork coasters and a couple of plants.
I painted the little pot with the sedum...first, white, and then with a dab of the same blue paint I used on the striped coasters.
Then, just for fun, I set the table with blue and white plates and napkins.
The blue watering can...which started all this...got deconstructed a little, but still sits on the deck coffee table.

I'm so glad I finally found some things that are weather resistant...they were all in the shed. So my new look is free.
Guess I'd better get busy and clean up the mess I made.
My sweet neighbor just dropped by with magazines and a gorgeous beachy color paint sample.
Thank goodness she doesn't mind seeing my house in a mess.
Have a good week,
