Okay, no more beach photos–let’s talk colored leaves, turkeys, and stuff now. We’re fattening up our Tofurkey for the big day. And with this little get-up, I may even be tempted to have Thanksgiving dinner outside despite the chill. We’ve already enjoyed some early fall dinners out on the patio with the new furniture.
Remember in the spring when the barren back patio was top on my project list?
Well, summer was already halfway gone when I determined that I would not find a table that I liked and could afford–so I turned to Chris who made this number for us, stained in Sikkens Cetol in Silver Birch. After he finished it I just didn’t like ringing the table with these ugly Lowe’s chairs…so then he made the benches for us. I ADORE these benches, stained in Sikkens Cetol custom color.
The rug is from Overstock, which I snagged as soon as I saw it on Lauren’s blog. Perfection. I painted the mirror from Tobacco Barn in Asheville. I would like to replace the little vintage table with a beefier table next year–leave a spot on your schedule, Chris! And I held out for some great conversation chairs from Target this summer, hoping to catch them on end-of-season clearance, but no luck. Next summer, maybe.
Who invited Grimace’s skinny younger sister? Duo Boots, my love.
The candy corn tablecloth is made from some remnants found at Hancock’s. Did you know your local dry cleaners can hem up a block of fabric for next to nothing to make a tablecloth for your pretty self? They can. Utilize. Just wash and dry the fabric before you take it to them to hem.
Have I told you lately I appreciate your visits to TPH? I do very much. Thank you for stopping by and making my day. MWAH!
