Summer Stock Sunday Furniture Restoration





Click on this link above to visit Robin at Around the Island, who generously hosts Summer Stock Sunday.

Now (aug 4th) I'm also linking with Karen from The Art of Doing Stuff cos she has a linky for your favourite project. By the way, her site is one of the most amazing places- practical but very funny, which don't often go together. e.g. how to open a bottle of wine with a shoe and a tree!





I've been doing a bit of a makeover on the garden, I'm fed up of the outdoor furniture, it needed varnish and I was dreading that job.














Then I saw a range of paint and realised painting didn't take any longer than varnishing...










so I took the plunge, and now we have PINK OUTDOOR FURNITURE!



I next need to clean that patio, before summer's over..








And that lovely pink blooming window box? I'm flowersitting for a friend who's on holiday. Optimistically, she asked me to keep it watered. I've had very little to do so far, nature has watered it every day!

  1. Not only do you have pink outdoor furniture, but also you have matching flowers and a beautiful result from your painting!

  4. We had a table like that before a HUGE limb crashed down during a storm. Good news - it didn't hit the house. Bad news -- it smashed the teak table on one end. Now it sits out there, broken, as we try to figure out how to salvage what's left. Except it's teak and REALLY hard to work with.
    Sigh.
    I love the pink!
