“I want our outdoor patio to look exactly like Josie’s outfit today.” I annoyingly announced to Graham to which he rightfully laughed at my ridiculous statement.
The outfit? Check it.
Cute, right? Kelly green, white and coral. Can’t go wrong there.
Why am I blabbering on to Graham about baby clothes to patio transformations?
Well, let me back up here. Handyman Graham is at it again. See what Josie is standing on in the above pic?
Let me give ya a closer look…
Yes, Graham built this bench with his own two hands. It’s amazing!! Lucky me. The painting wasn’t completely finished by the point of posting these pics. If the painting looks exceptional that’s because I helped twice for about twenty minute sessions until I got bored and came inside to blog. I’m all about team work.
So…I may be hands off for the dirty work but now my job begins. What to dress the bench in? I’ll be getting a seat cushion and a couple pillows made.
Could go Josie-esque…green, pink, white
Could go classic navy and white
Could go chambray and navy
Could go patterned
Could go solid
You see the world is a bit too much my oyster now. And pulling the trigger for myself, as a decorator, is a tough business. I’m headed to the design center to widen my choices and further confuse myself. The great fabric debate will continue until Graham tires of the charade and picks from a pile of fabrics I have strewn all over the patio, in the hopes that I will stop having goals of making our home look like things our two year old spills peach juice all over. Marriage predictions, people.
