Back patio


Big Chuck and I have been working on some crafty projects around the house recently, namely a kitchen table and a bookshelf. While both of them are complete we have yet to put the finishing touches on them and so they're not officially 'done', but once they are I'll post all the pics we took documenting the whole process from beginning to end on the blog. In the meantime I thought I'd show you our new and improved back patio. Big Chuck built this little table with the off cuts from our kitchen table and stained it a nice dark grey. We're debating whether to stain the kitchen table the same colour... I think we're leaning towards yes.

We got those school chairs in Fenelon Falls, where Big Chuck's parents live. We picked up all four for $6 at the local Salvation Army - deal!

I got a chance on Saturday afternoon to break in our new outdoor nook with a cup of jasmine tea, an apple and peanut butter snack and a good book. Yay for weekends!

Have a great Monday!
