Mini Make Over....

I have finally finished my mini make over!

My outdoor setting was looking a little bit worse for wear and since I have had my pergola done it looked a bit....should I say....crappy.... under the new pergola.

A bit rusty looking aren't they!

I couldn't afford to buy the new setting that I liked, so i thought why not paint the old one.

I think it looks like new and a lot brighter under the pergola too!

It was finally sunny over the weekend, so I was pottering around the garden and Bailey was lying on the grass soaking up the sun.

While I was taking photos of him he started to crawl along the grass, he went nearly the length of the yard, crawling, then stop, look at me, crawling, then stop, look at me, it was so funny to watch. I had my camera in my hand so I started videoing him.  I have added part of the video so you can have a laugh.


This is me and Bailey jumping in puddles of water in the backyard after all the rain that we had last week.

A couple of weeks ago I visited a historic house in North Richmond, NSW.  The house is on acres and has lovely gardens.

The front door

It was a very peaceful setting, all you could hear were the bellbirds in the trees.

Enjoy your day!


  1. That is the exact same setting as we have and it was all rusty,given to us by our son. My hubby painted ours white too,and it is just like yours. we recently acquired a table the same in an auction lot(photo on my blog this week) but I have left it rusty for a bit of character around the garden.
    'what a lovely home and gardens to visit. I love those sorts of days out.

  2. Haha! Lucy does the same's like a stretch and a scratch all in one! I had the same little outdoor setting on my front patio and one day Petal was putting some christmas lights up and instead of moving the ladder, he decided the chair would suffice. Needless to say ...he went straight through the seat. I looked so funny but I didn't let on that I was amused. Both chair seats had deteriorated in the sun. I still use the table though. Nifty little sets. I'm waiting for tha patio to be rebuilt now and a new setting will be on the cards then. Maa
