Le Bistro



This little deck is just off the media/library room that I recently renovated. I used to call it my "Shabby Chic" deck because just about everything in it had been scavenged from various sidewalks on trash day. But most of that furniture had moved from shabby chic to just plain shabby and needed to be replaced.  Now here it is with a completely different look and now I am calling it...




Le Bistro!



I moved the little table and chairs from my front porch and made a tablecloth and chair pads from an old Ralph Lauren sheet; the color was perfect.  The chandelier and mantle, found remnants of a old house being torn down, I kept. The chandelier is on a dimmer which adds to the ambiance at night.


I think that this will be a nice place to sit and have a glass of wine on warm summer evenings or a cup of coffee in the morning.



This seems to be my summer of Geraniums, I have just rediscovered their charm and the many wonderful colors and variations they come in.



The little bunny seems to be happy, I am am happy too, it has been a nice change with not too much effort.

Thank you for visiting.

  8. What a wonderful transformation!
    It must be so warm and magical at night when the crystal chandelier is all aglow...
    geraniums are such "giving" plants they blooms their little hearts out al summer long.

  14. Adrienne, this is stunning! When I saw it my heart skipped a beat. I LOVE the fireplace and chandelier, so elegant and romantic. It could easily grace the cover of a magazine. A wonderful outdoor space with real flair. Le Bistro is a home run!
