you can bet that i’ve now added ‘beaten up old barnwood door’ to my thrift shop-yard sale list (yes,there is an actual list!). draped over the limbs of a sturdy tree and adorned with candlelight, i can’t think of a dreamier place for a garden meal. though i’m not sure where they found those most perfect woven baskets to sit on (photo 1), i’m thinking big slices of a tree trunk would do just as well for sitting stools.

this little table and mismatching chairs came from our local thrift store, for about $20.

after being completely inspired by laurie’s herringbone wall design, i decided to go for it!  i used her same technique, but spray painted the table with gold paint before i taped off the design in beige and khaki.  i topped it off with a 3 coats of protective enamel, stained the legs cherry to match the chairs, and recovered the seats in an ivory and green leaf print.
