I am officially on Spring Break. I am so ready for an entire week of relaxing and laziness. It's been a rough school year and I'm beat. I found this cute box at Goodwill this week. I think I way overpaid, but there was something about it that I loved. It was marked for $15, but a piece of it was damaged so I talked to the manager and she gave it to me for $10. Still high, but whatever, I liked it. I have to figure out what I'm going to do with it. Another project in my pile.
My goal this spring is too fix up my backyard patio area. I will be taking pictures this week to show you the before. It's pretty grim right now. I was driving by my grandmother's house and found the base for a wrought iron table and stuffed it in my car. I'm thinking of painting it a bright color. I'm loving the idea of adding navy, yellow, or orange to my backyard.
I'm not sure what to do about the top. I am not necessarily a lover of glass tops, but I think this calls for that. A local lumber store sells round wood tops, would that work outside? We have no covered porch, so it would have to withstand the elements. A marble top would be great, but where would I find that? Any ideas?
