Outdoor Seating Area, My Summer Style

Danylle M
by Danylle M
I created this is an outdoor room for lounging in summer. Surrounded by flowers, my favorite Adirondack chairs are the perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee and a good book.
Lots of repurposed items make up this cozy outdoor seating area. I fill my vintage coffee pot with iced coffee and louge here on a warm summer evening.
I used an old coal bucket to plant my yellow petunias and an old wooden box with chippy paint as a coffee table.
I planted honeysuckle in my old milk jug and for height placed it on top of an old galvanized wash tub. Hummingbirds love it.
For an end table, I stacked vintage picnic baskets.

    I have an old milk jug, think I'll steal this idea

    As an advocate of native plants, I'd like to thank you for planting Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera Flava). Not sure where you are from, but in Missouri it is native and thrives in sun to part shade. Yes, the hummers love it - so do the butterflies. I hope you get to enjoy both of them. Your little oasis of calm in the center of your summer is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
