We started with nothing. The table was a flea market find @$20.00....the chairs were found one lane over at a different vendor...also $20.00. With my interior design background and Toms artist ability...we have a great set.....It was painted flat black and highlighted with metalic shots of paint. I recovered the seats with more foam and a extra window drape to tie i into my decor. Greens came from a tag sale and the fighting cocks were a bargin on ebay. These cocks are selling at a much higher price on designers sites like One Kings Lane.
Instead of messy candles, cups are filled with marbles left over from a craft project....Now I change the colors to go with the seasons. endt table....market find (I got two for $20.00) Tom painted black...They were bought for the bedroom ....didn't quite make it there. Lamp was my mothers ......everything else ....you guessed it. Also there is a up light on the floor.....it shoots light thought the colored glass....who needs candles.
Here is my favorite corner of my porch. Yellow chair( yes we painted it) was free. I wouldn't sit on it but my plants LOVE IT. Next comes my milk crates and door stoppers, all for sale...I am becoming attached and will be sorry to see them sell. This whole collection came from sales and markets . I guess what I saying is WHO needs pottery barn with their high priced repoductions ...when we can have the real deal...... ENJOY WHAT YOU DO, ENJOY WHO YOU ARE AND ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAYS
lots of love
