Size was not an issue. I wanted small, but not cramped. So the outside space would be part of our indoor space with a corrugated tin roof, old timber and vines flowering on the rafters.
I recently scrambled through this growing pile of wood scrap. I discovered what looked to be really cool old 2x8' and 2x12's long distorted and warped timbers covered in concrete. They had been part of the foundation concrete pour.
The above picture is the design Ron built for me for a large family farm table. And using these old scarred scraps, It turned out exquisite. After he was finished joining all his pieces, he gave it over to me to make my mark. Which you know I have no trouble doing. Ever...
The table is eleven feet long and will have eight matching benches. When he gets around to it... I will wait patiently.
Here are a few of her amazing links.
Her designs contain some of my favorite and much used colors. This was the impetus for the back porches color scheme. Red, Teal, Cream and my own custom black chalk paint. I always make my own personal chalk paints. Rather than pay upwards of $49.00 per quart of paint, I mix my own for $2.50 per quart. I only mix what I am going to need per project.
