We have been wanting some outdoor furniture but it is a little on the expensive side. I saw this table at the thrift store, it was $14.96. Right away I knew what I wanted to do with it. It is really neat, metal with two drawers and a cool top. But at the thrift store it was this ugly blue/grey color with scratches all over. I brought Clay over to look at it and see what he thought. He didn't say anything..I was like, "Babe don't you see the potential?" "No...not really." I love him, and how different we are. So we brought it home and I worked on it some. Compared to other projects this one was pretty easy and did not take a lot of time. The green chairs were not my first choice but they were out of the other color I wanted. I think they are starting to grow on me. The little plants are my favorite, they tie everything together. I already had the pots so that was another item I saved money on.

We ate dinner out there one night and Ellie said in this very contented voice, "This is fun." That was my goal. :)

I have to give credit to Clay for the pictures. He was outside one evening and noticed the light was nice. Thanks Babe, I love them!


  1. Gorgeous pictures, Clay! (as always)

    Brooke, I love the table! And I thought it was funny how you commented that you didn't care for the green chairs - I like it! They look very summery. You don't happen to have a 'before' pic of the table, do you? ;)

  2. Thanks Jill! Yeh, I do have one. I should have had Clay take it because when I did you couldn't tell how ugly it was. lol It was in the shadow of our house and just looked too dark. Clay told me later I should have over exposed it. :)

  3. I love it! It looks like the perfect peaceful spot. :)

  4. I love it! It looks like the perfect peaceful spot. :)
