Looking forward to spring
While searching Kijiji I came across this outdoor dining set for $99.00. I practically ran to pick it up :) It’s a little rusted but it will get a fresh coat of black when the spring finally reaches us. The owners originally purchased it at Restoration Hardware, many years ago.
Did I mention how envious I am of those who have their spring flowers poking up? Well, I am.
Last year I had my patio restoned and this year I am going to be focusing on creating an oasis there. I have big plans. I will be making some large planter boxes which will get some nice evergreens. I’m going to plant ivy to try to cover up my fence. This is a new venture for me as I don’t know much about plants, but I’ll learn.
Here’s a reminder of how it looked after I had new patio stones laid.
I stopped off at the fabric store today and found some great outdoor fabric to recover this set and make some cushions for the new table and chair set. There was a sale on! $6.00 / meter (or $5.50 / yard)!
I will start making the cushion covers as soon as the snow melts, which at this rate could be June :)
