Summer is rapidly approaching and I'm eager to get my patio set up and functioning. All I brought with me in the move was a green chair that I redid last summer and it was pretty sad sitting out on the patio all by itself this spring.
This weekend I got the chance to go to a champagne tasting and it was wonderful! It wasn't quite as beautifully prepared at the image below but it sure has my wheels turning about possibly hosting a beautiful outdoor champagne tasting on my patio....mainly because I found some vintage champagne glasses similarly shaped to the one below last time I went antiquing. I completely heart them! They're probably from the 50's and I just feel so chic when I get the chance to use them. I'm such a nerd.
Tile can transform the most mundane tabletop into an eye-catching centerpiece. After all, who wants to invite guests to a home and place evening drinks on an old, rusty, nasty looking table? Applying tiles to a wooden tabletop makes it waterproof allowing you the option of enjoying your new tabletop outdoors, which is an added bonus, incase a drink accidentally spills! Placing a decorated tabletop on your front porch, deck or landscaping will excite your senses. Applying tiles to a tabletop is a project that most do-it-yourselfers can accomplish in an afternoon, thus preventing you from having to allow yourself an entire weekend to create a beautiful tabletop. If it takes you longer than an afternoon, don’t worry, it’s ok. If you are tiling an outdoor tabletop and want an umbrella, drill a hole through the center of the tabletop and carefully cut your tiles around the opening, as this will prevent you from having to drill into the tiles. I have tried to drill on tiles, it did not work out to well for me.
