A little project

When I finally move out, I'm likely to inherit a few bits and pieces from my lovely parents. I'm not sure they know this yet, but I have decided that I am most definitely going to take (I mean, "inherit") one of their old outdoor settings.

It features two chairs which look exactly the same as this one and a matching table.

I think they're pretty cute. The only issue is that they are currently painted a lovely forrest green (I can assure you, it was totally in fashion in the 90's!).

In any event, they are not entering my house until they have had a makeover. I'm having a tough time deciding what colour the should be painted. Possibly a lovely duck egg blue, or maybe yellow.

I'd love some ideas on this, so if anyone out there is ready this blog - post a comment! Come on, there's no need to be shy.

I think I would also make some cushions to go with the chairs, maybe in a candy stripe fabric. But I have to say I have a massive soft spot for Amy Butler fabrics.

Amy Butler fabric can be purchased from Etsy.

  1. I love these fabrics. I think the rose pattern would look good. But probably too bright with duck egg blue. Decisions, decisions :)
