Porch Update

I finally finished sewing all the covers for my patio furniture.  My three pieces of material stretched just far enough to do both my front and back porch.


I covered six of the chair cushions with the lime green and black stripe.


For four of the chairs that fit around my rectangle table I used the lime green poly to do the seats and covered the backs in the outdoor print fabric.
Isn't this a cute print.  It has little bugs hidden on the leaves.  In this one if you look close you can see a grasshopper on the leaf on the the top right hand corner.



A couple of the side chairs also have this fabric.  Notice the little green table.  It is a child's table I curb shopped.  I found the prettiest green in a spray paint called Fern.

I loved the green so much I took a bench that used to sit by pond that was lavender and painted it green as well.  Well a couple of flower pots too.

Now I just love to step outside with my morning coffee and enjoy all the bright colors.  It is so nice what a few cans of spray and fabric can do.

How can you ever have a bad mood when you go out here every morning - it is gorgeous. You are extremely talented.

What a beautiful area in which to start your day. That green is so bright and cheery. Great work on the chairs. I wish I could have a space that could be kept clean. We have heat and dust and everything is covered in grime. :/ Have a terrific Thursday. Tammy

I agree with the others - you have done a great job there and it all looks very colourful and inviting. A lovely place to sit and have a cup of coffee, or glass of wine!
