Told ya! Well, I've been thinking that I need to dress it up a little bit. Make it a useable space. In order to use it, there needs to be a place to sit. So, I took this swing that I have had for years and put it on the front porch.
Then I went to TJ MAXX, have I mentioned I LOVE TJ Maxx and Marshalls, and found this cute little "bistro set." I am all about buying something at a discount. I don't pay full price for anything. If you don't shop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls you are really missing some bargains. Isn't this cute?
Well, I was on a roll. I decided the swing needed some pillows. So, I found these at Wal-Mart. I think it really dresses up the swing, don't you?
Wow! It's amazing what a difference a few items can make. Incidentally, I used bleach water to try to take the mildew off the concrete but I didn't have much luck. Does anybody have a sure fire way to clean the concrete? If you do, please share it with me.
I still have some work to do, but I sure think it looks a LOT better than it did. Keep checking back for the finishing touches. And, feel free to leave your comments/suggestions. I really enjoying hearing new ideas!
