New Vista PatioIt has been awhile since I have posted...we survived the BIG move to our new smaller space. We are one month into our new home and the gorgeous September weather has made our new screened patio the perfect place for lunch and relaxing! Having had a screen porch in our former homes we were very excited that our new apartment had a screen patio just a bit smaller than the porch we were used to having. But, the color scheme was very different - we were used to tan, white, and the light blue of our patio furniture that we had used for over 20 years. Our furniture is in fantastic shape because we always stored it in our basement over the winter.
I measured with existing mats and just turned the edges under. One place mat had to be patched, but I figured it would be covered by a plate and no one but me would ever know!
To make it even better on a trip to Lowe's to buy an electrical switch for the garbage disposal in the home we were selling I wandered over to the outdoor section and found the perfect outdoor rug to cover the cement floor of the patio! On sale for $99.00 it would tie the entire patio together. My dear husband is still pondering how we went to Lowe's for a 69 cent switch and came out spending a hundred dollars...
All set for a lunch on the patio !
Have just about everything where we want it in our new space...here is my sewing nook...
Hmmm....I still have a few scraps leftover. Maybe my next project will be a cover for the pin cushion?!?!?
Thanks for visiting Our New Vista...leave a comment and let me know what you think.
