I fall in love with perfect patina...
not too dark- not too light but just right
and with lots of chippy rusty goodness...
it gets me every time
The old leaves, flowers and scrolly designs are delightful
and love the little flower pot holder underneath.
This shade of green is so charming
I love when I find pieces that are already a perfect color
and show their age so beautifully.
This vintage garden table and the matching four chairs
were a craigslist find last year for $80.
I adored the set when I first saw it
was head over heels for the green and rusty crusty loveliness.
I placed it outside in the back yard last year
and did a Valentines post and a winter garden dining post.
When the weather started getting yucky
I moved it under our pergola to keep it protected a bit more.
I should have left it out in the open.
After the insane pergola incident, the table and chairs were under that mess.
Amazingly, they were fine - other than a broken glass tabletop.
The french doors and pergola were another story.
I thought about replacing the glass...
and looked around a bit at different pieces
but decided on a different look for this little darling table.
A few random sized pieces of pine and cedar
( even a piece of old knotty pine from one of the house walls- love that)
these left over planks of wood became
a beautiful shabby tabletop.
A perfect little spot to sew & work on projects
and the quirky look some of them have.
Together they are so charming and the table is just perfect in my
*almost finished up*
Guess I better get back to work!
