Well isnt the weather taking a lovely springlike turn?? I have been in Dover on business for a couple of days and I can’t believe the temperature gage on my car has gone to 17 degrees!!! Positively tropical! I am actually starting to remeber what summer feels like….!
So this weekend I have started to put my garden furniture plan into action. I basically want to buy (or, hopefully, ‘acquire’) an old pub/picnic style bench. I want to paint it bright blue, and I want to ask my lovely mommy to make two bench seatpads from some stripey deck chair material! I would do it myself but I am frankly useless at that kind of thing. Some times I wish I had paid more attention in GCSE Textiles….
Here are some pictures that I have found for inspiration…
I want a bench like that…..
I need that colour wood paint…..
…And I want the seat pads to be decked out in this sort of lovely material!!!
If I actually manage to get all three items this weekend, then I can start my project on SATURDAY! This excites me. I will post some piccies and a blog post on it if my little plan comes together…!
