Hello my friends,
I have been busy on the back porch again.
This time I actually painted some of the furniture and made a slipcover for the old armchair.
Notice that the old tablecloth is thrown over it and the embroidered piece is just set on it.
And notice here that it's one cohesive piece!
I put a pretty vintage chenille fabric back on it.
And did you see the little table beside the chair?
It is now almost the same colour as the vintage ice chest.
Now here is the table and chairs that are in the corner of the porch.
Note that you really can't see the table legs, they are dark and fade into the walls...
You can see them now!
I mixed up a chalk paint using Plaster of Paris and a bit of craft paint to make the colour that I wanted.
I also upholstered the chair seats in a white fabric.
And, I put a lovely table cloth on it that a sweet friend gave me several years ago.
On the other side is an old bookshelf that was a curb-side find. We put our shoes on it.
In most Canadian homes you do not wear your outdoor shoes inside.
You have a place to put them near the door and you wear sox or slippers inside.
This is where we put our shoes, on a pretty turquoise blue "shoe"case.
I adore the colour that I mixed up, it is such a lovely turquoise blue.
My shabby little porch is looking better,
it's definitely flea market style decorating.
But best of all it makes me smile.
What is making you smile today?
