Yippee! The weekends here. Hope everyone has a really nice one and that the weather is good for you. It`s supposed to be sunny and warm here all weekend.
I did these two projects a couple of weeks ago but haven`t been very up to date with posting so I thought I`d throw them up now.
The first is putting together the Bistro set. It was actually surprisingly easy and came with all it`s nuts and bolts
The green was nice and especially with the peonies but it was painted cheaply looking and I wanted black to match the trellis and back door.
So I painted it....
I like it black and it looks better in real. The umbrella was necessary because it gets really hot back here. Needs getting rid of the white colour pole at some point and having a small stand to hold it straight. Looks better without the umbrella. A roll up awning would be nice instead but not this year. The plants are from inside. I had them in the frontroom and they looked really nice when they were in bloom. Geraniums mostly. But they weren`t happy.
So their sat here now off the table and are looking like they may start to bloom again
Next project was painting this chair. I saw one in a magazine that caught my eye, especially with the pillow colours on it.
So I found some paint very close to the colour....
And painted it..
Showing just a tad bluer than it actually is.
