outdoor dining {One Room Challenge} week six: the reveal!

This is it, the big reveal from the One Room Challenge!

The rain stopped long enough to let me finish a couple things
and enjoy our first al fresco dinner for Mother's day!
And it was just I dreamed it would be:




The new table is huge,
I set it up for 6, but 8 will fit easily.


probably 3 people can sit there for a meal, especially children!


and made from old deck parts!


The colors of the seating area: indigo, turquoise/aqua and green are perfect with the eating area


The wall light stands out on the freshly repainted walls.
The string lights turned out beautifully,
the second row of light went faster than the first!


And at night, it gives the perfect glow for a meal,


or lounging on the couch.

I would say that overall, it was a great success,
even if not everything was done,
too much rain, not enough time!

  2. Your table is so beautiful! I love the way you have a bench on one side and chairs on the other. I've been leaning towards function like that for a while now. Job well done!
