*A Sunny Spot

It sounds like a lot of people are longing for spring. Me too, even though it has not been a mean winter here. The sunporch is a mess right now. I've been moving things around and nothing is in its right place lately. I look at this picture, which all of my old friends have seen before, and I think I need to get out there and get it looking good again. Not today or in the next few days, it's going to chilly here, too!


 Since my area is covered, I used waterbased poly after it was done. For an outside deck you can use either a marine varnish, or a solvent base poly.




Update 2012:

This was done maybe in  2006 or 2007. Colors change. The first "rug" was painted over,  and the second one needs some updating if it is going to stay on the porch. But both held up extremely well for years on a covered porch.

  2. "Snow! Goodness, it took a minute to figure out what was buried in the yard. A giant foot? No, just a chair!"

    You commented this {above} in my blog... on the *snow burial* pics of summer chairs on the patio. I got a good chuckle out of your reaction. Thank you!

    And happy you stopped by. Do come back again some time, please.

  6. I'm loving those rugs! Did you use stenciling? I would have to because I couldn't do that! I couldn't free hand anything. That is why we just have stripes! LOL! I will have to study this...Beautiful sunny spot, love the room. Thank you for posting the picture for me to see!

  10. This is a lovely spot, but then again they all seem to be lovely spots! Your rugs are wonderful! Hand done I am sure, but there's a future in creating your own stencil patterns for those of us who want the look, but lack the skills...just an idea.
