We weren’t planning on sharing the final photos of our Pinterest Challenge table until we had finished the benches, but we just couldn’t resist sharing this beauty with you.
She’s done! Just look at that rosy, gorgeous cedar! We used leftover stain from our fence to stain the top (we’re also using it to stain the deck) so that everything in the back yard ties in together.
Right now we’re going back and forth on whether we want to urethane the top to help protect it even more. For now, we’re going to leave her as she is… especially since the boil is this Saturday!!
On another note, we made another couple purchases this weekend on the decor side of things.
Tiki torches! Since mosquitos down here in Texas are the size of small birds, we have to take layers of precautions to keep them away (Dallas was the West Nile capitol of the US last summer). Our first layer of defense will be these amazingly bright colored tiki torches that we found for $12 at Garden Ridge.
We also bought a few packs globe string lights from Target to string back and forth across the patio. I can’t wait to get them up!
What did you do this weekend? Any project finishing going on?
