Vintage Porch For Spring

img_1470

Yesterday I got out my old vintage table cloths previously owned by a dear friend who passed away a few years ago. I found last year that they make my furniture under the gazebo look more pleasing. I’m not in the market to get these cushions reupholstered. So this was the next best thing. (I now see that Abi was in the midst of jumping into one of the chairs. Looks like she’s flying through the air!)

Simply lay the table cloth over the cushions, and start “tucking.”

Of course you have to tuck them back in fairly often. But still, I’d rather do that than look at the drab colors that are underneath!

So this is the view from the courtyard gazebo.
