a cute little bistro set, painted furniture, Vintage White and Peacock Paints give these pieces a fun beachy theme

A Cute Little Bistro Set

Stuck in the middle of a cold, nasty winter, I'm doing my best to look ahead to spring. So when I pulled a couple of dirty but very cool vintage wooden chairs from the garage, washed them up and paired them with a World Market table, all found at yard sales, a turquoise beach theme immediately came to mind!To create this cute bistro set, I used CeCe Caldwell's Vintage White and American Paint Company's Peacock, a gorgeous turquoise. I was sure to clean any accidental paint off of the original patinaed hardware because I loved the dark look of it against the white. I used Peacock on the chair insets and then made a faux inset on the table my masking off a square area for the turquoise. They all seem to go perfectly together now! And the color definitely reminds me of a warm summer day!

A Rusty Bin and Pallet Wood Shelf

When I picked this rusty bin up , I just knew it was going to be perfect to use. For something. But it's taken me over a year to figure out just how I wanted to use it. I created a pallet wood backer for the bin and attach it with 2 screws. But it needed more. So I added more pallet wood until I got the look I wanted and ended up adding a shelf over the bin, too. Now it's the prefect addition to my updated gallery wall!
