Monday I made a stab at sprucing up the patio and getting it ready for summer. Summer? In Oregon, we have yet to see Spring...until this week it has rained and/or been cloudy, suddenly it is warming up and we are getting more sun. Today, PERFECT...75 degrees and sunny.
MOTIVATION: Sunshine and a "buck's" worth of old black and white ticking!
Hit a few yard sales this A.M. and found a few fun things, but the BEST was a piece of old ticking that at one time covered a single feather mattress. It has a few rust stains but there's a lot of fabric and potential for a $1.00.
For now, I just folded it and put it in the seat of our porch swing.
So, today, I got out the lime green spray paint and brightened up those blah white wires! The place is starting to sing a whole new tune!
Our patio is the typical long narrow slab of concrete located right next to the house....hard to decorate, harder to photograph but, I'll try!
Nothing says spring like flowers fresh from the garden sitting in an old wire basket with a slate Welcome sign.Almost finished! I have a wood bench that sits across from the porch swing and I am trying to decide if I should leave it as is, with natural wood, or painting it black, too. I'll show you after I decide.
O.K. I'm ready.....where is summer?
