Back in May I asked you to give me color advice on the picnic table I found for free in our neighborhood. After a bit of debate we decided against a bright color and went with a neutral gray. I love bright colors and using paint but I didn’t want to deal with it chipping and cracking.
Sorry for the delay in these reveal photos, I was going to post them weeks ago but I wanted to wait until my camera came back from the repair shop so I could add more. Unfortunately my camera still isn’t fixed and who knows when I will see it again and it is really cramping my blog style!
I found my outdoor patio dishes at Target, I chose colors that would tie into the rest of the colors outside. Our yard isn’t full of furniture and plants, just a few chaise lounges, comfy chairs, and a small herb garden but that works for us. Over the 6 years that we have been married we have moved around a lot so I guess we have learned to take it slow and add things little by little.
I really like the mission style of this table, much cuter than what they are currently selling at Home Depot. Still can’t believe this table was free!
We have it placed under the large tree in our backyard, a nice shady spot.
I have battery operated candles in the lanterns that turn on at dusk and it is nice to look out and see them lit up from our living room. Something about candles makes our house feel like a home.
