I switched out the table and replaced it with this old one to lighten up the place.
A recent love is old baskets that have some wear and tear. They seem to tell a story of someone working hard carrying fruits and vegetables to a market. This French basket was found at an estate sale.
My old honey pot is perfect for these fading hydrangeas.
I lined the interior of the chandelier with sheet moss and inserted a plastic bag to catch water for the fern.
I hung the chandelier from a piece of copper wire. Purchased at any building supplies store, it can be used to hang outdoor plants, too. It weathers nicely and you can bend and twist it any way you like.
My friend gave me stacks of designer fabric swatches. I haven't figured out what to do with them, but did use one of the swatches as a cover for this chair. It already has grommets on each side, so I tied it to the chair with some ribbon!
This is a very dark space with the cedar beams and bead board on the ceiling. We chose the rust colored fabric, so the cushions could stay outside all the time and not show so much dirt.
We use this space a lot, so I added as many seats as possible in this long narrow space.
The grain sack rug is easy to roll up and tuck behind the couch on rainy days.
I purchased the English sewing bamboo table for a bargain. It was full of old sewing supplies and wooden spools. I found another one just like it in Charleston for triple the price!
Extra seating for the children...
I purchased the floral linen pillows years ago. I almost got rid of them a few years back, but decided to hold on to them. They work well out here!
An old French milk bottle holds some greenery from the yard.Snow Source in Vermont carries similar ones if you are interested!
