Luckily, I can count on local artists to bring in new work.
I was happy to see Holly today who brought these great new pieces.
|With a shallow storage area under the flip-up top, this piece is perfect for displaying pillows or a quilt collection.|
|Leave fence boards outside to weather naturally before using them for interior projects.|
|Another board wall in my nice room.|
|Chair side view. Piped in a dark cranberry suede cloth.|
|The original tag. See what somebody paid to have this chair made?|
|The pretty tubes at Bob's Canoes|
|Before: Every square inch of the house was green. |
Also, notice what is missing here? There is no walkway to the front door.
|After: New paint in a much prettier shade of green and a winding flagstone path|
lead to a welcoming landing and a new front door.
|Dave brought this door knocker of his pilot wings home from for me from Korea. |
As soon as we got to FL we had Dermody engraved on the banner.
|This pair of solid wicker steamer chairs were a perfect find|
for the porch. They recline and have pull-out footrests.
|I found this vintage bistro set on craigslist for $20. |
A good sanding and a fresh coat of paint gave it a whole new look.
The vinyl decals add a personal touch.
|We repurposed wood from the old deck that we tore off the back of the house to make|
hefty board and batten shutters. The shutters are both decorative and functional
and can be latched closed in the event of a storm. The fountain is another craigslist find.
|The porch floor, that used to be green along with the entire exterior of the house, got a facelift. First, I painted it with a textured porch paint. Then, I applied a deck stain over the paint. I poured the stain on with a small paper cup and spread it around in small sections using a crumpled plastic shopping bag. It looks just like stained concrete!|
|A potting bench under the window adds a touch of color.|
