This was our inspiration! Audrey & I started planning out a backyard transformation. Our yard is just so blah. We took the swing set down last year because it was no longer safe, but we had intentions of building a playhouse in its place. We have the hardwood flooring for it... but that's as far as it has gotten. So... in the interim, we're going to go for a garden/tea party look in the back. Maybe the girls will want to spend more time back there. :) Here's our starting point:
We've got big plans! We headed out to check the new Goodwill down the street. It was awesome! So clean and organized. Happy place! We found a really nice wooden table, chair, & storage bench set. It was a high quality material, really heavy. But, it had been quite loved. (Lots of tape, writing, and nail polish):
We sanded it down this afternoon and added the first coat of paint. We're using the inspiration color palette from above. On the table I actually did green chalkboard paint. Here's stage 1:
|We'll be adding green to the rails on the back of the chair, |
but we have to finish the body first and then tape it up to add the third color.
May also change the pink because its not quite as dark as I wanted.
|The orange looks yellow here, but it is a little lighter in person.|
We also have a birdhouse (of course) and other goodies. I can't wait to get it all put together! In the meantime, check out my sweet (and very serious) helper:
And, finally, a bonus buy. No idea why I bought it, but it spoke to me. LOL It is an old school slide screen that Audrey called a "T.V. from the 90's". Nice! I think it calls for some backyard movie watching! Do you guys have any ideas to share?!
