It’s All Set!

Friday is finally here and your thrifty gal was on a roll this week.  Began the garden weeding (which I hate so much – I wish the plants would grow as fast as the weeds.. uggghhhh!! WEEDS BEGONE!! but the beds are looking fuller.  I finally painted the porch swing and completed that cozy space and last but not least for this week’s projects… I found the paint color to match the chairs.  Remember these – my thrifty score for $25.00

They were paired with my lonely table.

Well.. I found the matching color which is “Lafonda Mirage” by Valspar and now it’s all a set. I’m too thrilled about this set.  I’ve developed a love for rattan and this set was all thrift store deals.  The table base was $30.00 purchased years ago.. the glass top was taken from another table that was rickety..(perfect fit).. the chairs completed the look.  Total cost for this look $85.75

The outdoor rug was purchased on line from World Market  for $19.99 but it’s actually on sale for $9.99 (drats).  I should have waited.. oh well.. my lost.. chuckles.. can’t win them all..

Remember the wall vase? (you can see the before here) I  added some faux seasonal flowers and sprayed some tree branches

I was on a spray craze, and also did the placemats.. What the heck.. they were only $0.75 cents.. chuckles..


The adorable little vase was another Goodwill purchase.. for $2.75.  I fell in love with the color and how it’s accented with the little white dots (it was made handmade pottery by someone name Amy Sizemore in 2002  – how I know – she signed the bottom)

I know, cute little toss pillows are missing but that’s ok… they’ll come in due time…but in the meantime, it’s perfect to enjoy breakfast, smoothies, lunch or dinner on the deck.  Time for me to take a little rest and I hope you all have a smooth-ie weekend!  Ciao!

  1. Most people get an outdoor set, throw it on the deck, porch or patio and that is it. Yours is welcoming, cheerful and says that everything you do, you do with creative thought and care. This all makes a statement to anyone who sits down at your home. I love the way you used the antique ice cream parlor chair to add greenery. What a nice spot.

  2. The table and chairs look as if they all came together in a set. You did a really great job of first & foremost being patient enough to wait it out and find just the right chairs, and next to put it all together as you have. I have 4 chairs here right now that I wish I could just give to you. I know you would do something fabulous with them!!! Sadly, I’ll probably never do anything with them, so they’ll just end up on the curb. 🙁

    Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy your pretty new outdoor lounge area!!!
