Welcome to part two of my creating rooms in the garden posts. If you missed the entry and sitting room you can see them here : Making Rooms
The area under our pergola would have to be our outdoor ‘living room’. It’s the place where we do the most living.
I wanted it to be very welcoming with lots of seating.
Of course we have to have fresh flowers!
This to me is ‘rustic elegance’. A beautiful Hydrangea in a rusty shopping cart.
Two of my sisters, a friend, and myself each made a couple of chicken wire cloches. An old door knob and a pearl napkin ring were added to the top. My sister in law, Laurie had made one with the napkin ring and I loved the touch of bling.
Even the dining table has a pretty bouquet picked from the garden.
A scalloped quilt with yo-yo flowers makes a pretty tablecloth. I made this one years ago.
The rock wall edge at the back of the pergola, (living room) holds more garden goodies.
My chicken feeder I stenciled a couple years ago.
A birdhouse built by my dear, father in law. Of course I added all the rustic junk.
A couple of planted tool trays.
Planted teapots sit on a small ladder alongside a few of my vintage sprinklers. A small metal ice cream freezer is planted with impatiens and the pint size garden tools are handy for the grands.
A fun place to relax amongst garden treasures. This to me is what I call, ‘living’!
Looking forward to sharing my ‘outdoor kitchen’ with you.
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
