Patio Furniture [Upcycle]
Spring & summer mean backyard BBQ's and a revolving door of friends and family hanging out on the back deck. We decided that our dark green furniture needed a face lift. So 6 cans of Valspar Tropical Oasis and 4 new cushions later -- we have a little oasis of our own!
Just don't mind all the pollen on the table top!
Glass Mosaic [Bar]
I got married in my parent's backyard. So that kicks the traditional "reception bar" to the curb. I wanted something a little different...to say the least.
The devil is in the details, and I tend to be OCD about any sort of detail. My brother made a bar for his college apartment. It was pretty awesome to begin with, but I wanted to jazz it up a bit so it would be well dressed for the wedding. My mom is a stained glass artist and had a zillion pieces of scrap glass.
Since the colorwheel for the wedding was a peacock feather, we had a lot of wiggleroom for color choices...not that it really would have mattered.
So 3 months before the wedding this was hanging out on the kitchen floor, our masterpiece!
