Our day begins right here...
These are some of our most worn and treasured outdoor pieces.
Don't you just love it when your belongings can tell a story?
When love, time and energy has been poured into giving them
But yet preserving them in an old way...
This great outdoor Art was created by my husband. He used
remnants of bead board and cedar from some of his other projects.
I found some leftover trim paint and stain-barely dipping the tip of
the paintbrush into the paint and going over the beadboard lightly
and briskly I achieved an aged and weathered look. I topped it off
with stain. For the frame I dipped a rag into the stain and rubbed it
all over. My friend Laura, gave me the Texas Iron.
I am so thrilled that old is the new-new!
This 25 year old wrought iron table is still looking good-a little
mellow yellow spray paint, and new cushions for the chairs.
So much elbow grease has been put into all of these outdoor
pieces. Sanding, painting, scrubbing and now we get to sit
back and enjoy.
