~ A Little Paint~

The new spot for the furniture under the gazebo seems perfect with the lights on at night.
 
I painted the smaller piece with
   one coat of white paint and 
and the new piece was distressed enough so I really didn't do anything to it. Since they're going to be outside anyway. 
A little white paint for the 
blue chair to finish the look.
Setting the mood at night is easy with candles.
We can sit outside in the summer and enjoy all our hard work.
The lighting is the key element at night.
I think this little piece turned out just right for this spot.
I'm always on the hunt for things for the garden.
We're enjoying the long nights outside.


I think a glass of wine sounds good right now, 
don't you? A beautiful sunset on a hot summer night.

  7. What charming compositions! I appreciate rustic furniture and this one is a great find.

    There was a time I wished of renovating a small barn in the country and furnishing with rustic pieces of furniture as you had done with your patio.

    Cheers on this Wednesday morning!

  25. How wonderful! Could it be any more fantastic? If so, I'm sure you'll be the one to make it so. I think it's calling my name. Maybe you could come over and turn my patio into a magical place, then when it calls, it'll be right outside my back door where I can reach it readily. That would be much better than having to look but not touch. Don't get me wrong, looking at your lovely setting is inspiring, but I sure wish I was there!

    I know this may sound like a stupid question but I am curious as to how you protect your wood pieces from the rain?
