A Renewed Patch of Backyard
We have a little patio in our backyard-a patch really-that we don't use, and I've never done anything with it.
I decided I wanted it to look pretty, since our sunporch overlooks it, so I set about finding an inexpensive way to jazz it up!
I found this little iron table and the 2 chairs at 2 different shops, but thought their chippy white and rusty finishes matched up nicely! The whole set only cost me $35!
The sweet little garden angel came from the flea market, and she has a new home on the table.
Keith and I went to a sale years ago at the home of a popular Country Living magazine contributor. We got this huge (and heavy!) old shabby birdhouse from him, and I've never really had a good spot for it.
I added it beside the seating area, and I love the visual punch it gives!
I've had the concrete urn out here for awhile, so I added a pretty fern to make it complete.
The little red birdhouse was a gift from Keith a couple months ago, and he attached it to the tree for me.
The whole area has kind of a shabby, overgrown look, but of course that's just my style! :)
And now I enjoy the view instead of looking at a barren patch of patio!
Thanks so much for stopping by...
...and have a fantastic day!
