First, I completely forgot to give you all the decision on the HomeGoods table I loved.
I agree with the majority of you, as much as I loved it and wanted
it to work it's just to bulky for my space. :(
I'm so ready to have my deck and yard together for summer entertaining,
it's usually close to being finished by now, but our May Day snowstorm and several rainy
days and cold nights last week stalled any progress.
Remember last year when I found this settee at a yard sale and re-did the cushions?
I found the bold ikat fabric on the clearance rack for $5 a yard, I knew:
1) It wouldn't last more than one season
2) I'd want something different this summer
Which brings us to the new project, I love the neutral cushions in the inspiration photos
below. I was pleasantly surprised to find my pattern labeled and ready to go, woo hoo!
My organization skills have slipped this year, I couldn't even find my paint brushes the other
day, they were in the fridge, and sadly still are!

Notice how my $5/yard fabric held up over the winter, not! I picked up a drop cloth from
Lowes for $10.99 I think it will give me the exact look I'm going for.
How sweet is this?
I noticed this sign next to a potted pine tree for sale in the garden section at Lowes.
Right above it was a nest with about four babies.
Another update - In case you're waiting for the 'Deal Alert' on the boxwoods and
evergreens I've been watching, but haven't seen them yet.
Last year it was on May 9th, so we could be out of luck.
One more thing, a tip for bloggers!
Last year I posted this photo when I was re-doing the settee, it showed the new cushion
I made and the old faded cushion. I found it on the DIY with Pier 1 Pinterest Board
with the description 'diy with creative cushions'
Oh my goodness, seriously, and my name all over it!
Since then I put text on my photos that states 'In Progress,' to alleviate any confusion!!
Whew, that was wordy ~ I'll go now!
