You hammer a nail into the area where you'd like the art to hang
And hang your art...................
Difficulty Level - depends how tired you are
Now that you know how to do it - here's my post !
I've never showed you the outdoor dining area because I keep forgetting to take photos when it's set up for actual dining - but I thought I'd show you the art wall !
This little section was crammed full of swimming equipment when we bought the house - and because that's what it was being used for John did NOT want to make it a dining area................
He fought me and fought me on this one - so I did what anyone would do - I waited till he was out and did it myself !!!
Once I cleared it out I was left with this
I'd love to add to it eventually and make a rustic pool house ( this directly faces the shallow end of the pool )
but for now it seemed like the perfect place to create a dining area
Some artwork spruced it up immediately
So did an outdoor carpet I've had for at least 10 years -
I then added the frames we used for Lindsay's wedding ( you can see them HERE )
and placed 2 more " word art " pieces ( which my Son gave me one Christmas ) inside of them
Putting traditional artwork in this area really makes it feel like a dining room and I like the bit of glam against the very rustic wood.....................
For a little extra dose of glam I bought these colorful crystals
To put on my tea light " birdcages " ( I don't know what else to call them - my brain hurts at the moment )
They capture the sunlight in the day AND the candle light and fairly lights in the evening, beautifully
Hopefully I'll be able to show you the whole space before the first snowfall - or before I change it completely - whichever comes first !!!
Right now we're working on a plank wall IN the house -
And I'm in the process of painting another hutch -
Fun times !
I need a day in bed....................an entire day - reading and eating chocolates and taking lots of naps.
Maybe - just maybe - it'll happen today
Suzan says - Can you pick me up a box of turtles please?
John says - Why? What's the occasion?
( that's the point we've reached - where I need to have an occasion to get a lousy box of turtles LOL )
Suzan says - No occasion - Just because I love them - and I intend to lay in bed eating them over the course of the day
John says - Oh sure - no problem - shall I pick up some grapes and hand feed them to you too ?
Suzan says - That won't be necessary at all - but make sure it's a big box of Turtles, 'K ?
Maybe I'll eat some of them outside
Have a great Tuesday everyone
Much love ♥
I'll be at these great parties this week !
