Last month I started sprucing up my sad little patio, and had hoped I would be finished by the beginning of July. Well, reality hit and here we are at the end of July and I am still--working on her. Since then, I've added a couple shrubs, that are supposed to do well in containers (let's pray they're right), a couple of cute pillows, lights and a new table.
Last year, while visiting my sister and her family, I noticed this large electrical spool. Knowing my BIL was probably going to get rid of it, I asked if I could have it. They looked at me like I was silly and obliged. I had seen a few diy table of these floating around blogger-town and knew I would use it somewhere. My patio, was the perfect space. I sanded her down, slapped on some stain and some wheels...voila! Instant side table.
Isn't she adorable?
I am still set on some kind of water feature and some kind of focal piece of art...or something. And even with my patio, still coming together, I have been enjoying my little "space" outside. I love that I have some place to sit and the kids aren't overtaking it. Sometimes you just gotta say "No".
Hope your week is turning into a good one...
Happy Tuesday, all!
