The warm weather and the lazy days of summer have finally arrived! Let’s make it the best summer ever by creating memories and spending time with the people who make us happy.
I plan on doing that by sitting on the patio with friends and family. Because I want to spend so much time out here, I want to make it as comfortable and charming as I can. I want more of a lounge feel than the traditional patio table and chairs which is why I chose cozy seating. This Hyannis Table from Wicker Emporium is the perfect accessory for your outdoor patio! It is a very sturdy side table and I love the space underneath where you can add the perfect accessory.
Because the wood grain was so beautiful, I wanted to showcase it and not hide it underneath paint. As always, I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint but as a stain rather than a paint. Instead of mixing it one part paint to one part water, I did one part paint to two parts water. I really loved the grain of the wood on the top of the table so I left it as is. I finished it all off with a little Hemp Oil and that was it.
You are probably wondering why I would bring an inside table outdoors? Well, the simple answer is, because I wanted to, it’s your place and you make the rules.
I want to be surrounded by things that I love and that accentuate my existing décor. Shouldn’t we all have things around us that we love? Why do we wait until a special occasion to use the things that we have? Use your good dishes, haul out your comfy chair onto the patio for an evening. Do it! Enjoy your treasures!
