As you know, I'm decorating my patio this Spring. Our deck most definitely needs to be replaced, but we can't do that without replacing the vinyl siding first. As we're not prepared to go there quite yet, I'm decorating instead.
I'll show you everything soon, today, I'm just showing you the vignette I created on my Pottery Barn console that arrived this week.
Can you see the water spigot on the right which almost touches the deck? I can't believe it was installed in such a dumb spot. We are going to have it moved to the side of the house.
I adore my oversized faux coral, also from the Pottery Barn. The mirror and faux lemon branches are from Target and everything else (except the flower pot, San Pellegrino and watering can) is from HomeSense.
The basket with the lid holds placemats.
This is how crooked our existing deck is, it took two little slabs of stone over an inch thick to balance the console, haha. My best friend Tami Rode was over on Friday afternoon for cocktails and snacks on our new patio furniture and she walked to the side of the house, picked up two stones and magically that was exactly the height we needed. I would still not have worked out exactly what to do with that dilemma.
Desperate times, call for desperate measures, that's all I'm saying.
I'm running out next to plant some annuals in my garden! xo Maria
