It’s still coolish here. Have to turn the heat on at night. I knew I put those little black stoves up too soon.
But I was in an organizing frenzy, and they went into the back of one of the closets.
I’ve been dusting. All this rainy weather has the arthritis in my back acting up. So I have to get up and move around or get stiff.
So I’ve been doing and changing things a bit.
The benches that held all the plants have moved back here, where they were once before. It is time for some of the plants to go outside. It is their growing season, and I have a good bit of shade in case it gets too hot.
So then I had that space in the so-called dining room, and wanted to make good use of it over the summer. So here’s what I did…
I can’t get a full-on shot to save my life. Just not enough room. You recognize my brown wicker chairs. Which, I might add, are indoor/outdoor chairs just like my red ones at the gold table under the living room window.
It’s always smart to go that route. Then you can just take them outside and spray them down! They seem to be more durable. And of course if you need outdoor seating, you can take them outdoors.
I had the red table outside, so I just brought it in and cleaned it up.
Now I have a spot to drink my coffee or eat while staring out at the lush plantings on the patio. I can thumb through cookbooks or just sit and enjoy my day.
I think one of my very favorite DIYs in the past month is this simple window covering. I smile every time I walk in here. And it’s so simple!
