tabletop

Just a tablecloth update here.

I had to settle for the fine selection at Target as I am ballin’ on a budget. But I like it! I think a tablecloth is necessary for a pleasant outdoor dining experience, especially since this table is grody to the max underneath it. Mmmm…dinner on the porch, anyone?

summer kind of wonderful

I’m astounded and a bit disgusted at how quickly summer’s approached, and I haven’t even thought about getting my porch in shape. The main thing it needs right now, besides a good scrub-down, is a colorful, graphic tablecloth covering the dusty glass patio table. Here are a few I’ve found that I’m loving.

Now y’all know how much I gravitate towards gray. And geometric patterns. Love at first sight. This one is from Belle Chambre.

Can I just have all of these? Alicia’s Table has really awesome tablecloths and linens. And they’re all badass. Every single one of ’em.

 

Here’s a pretty cool one from Texturas Urbanas. She also sells matching pillows and seriously cute bags, to boot. Love all her stuff.

Now I just need to save up some money to revamp my porch…quickly, before summer fades away! What do you still need to do in order to bask in all of summer’s glory? I wanna know!

café table

So I’ve been in the market for a new coffee table for a very long time. I’ve been using an old roommate’s white wicker chest as a make-shift for almost 4 years. I repeat, four years! It was always thought of as temporary until I got my hands on a great coffee table.

Problem is, I could never put my finger on which style I craved: modern? antique? simple? weird? Just make a decision, already! Many meals are consumed on this couch and I just wanted a large, flat surface on which to set drinks, plates, condiments, what-have-you. I’ve had it with wobbly, tilty glasses and ketchup bottles!

Today I’m proud to announce that I’ve finally pulled the trigger. My only requirements: long, flat, and $30 or under. Say hello to this chunk of goodness:

Found on Craigslist (of course) for $25. Yesss! Now, I won’t lie and tell you that I love this table, because I don’t. But it masculines-up the living room, looks kinda cool and, most importantly, will allow Evan and me to watch Californication while gorging ourselves without fear of my wine glass toppling over due to faulty crevices. Ah, how much simpler life will be.

side table

Check out this table I got yesterday for only $50 on Craigslist!

I love the cross-shaped bracket connecting all of the legs.

I apologize for the quality of these photos. I wish that either: a.) I knew how to take a good picture, or b.) I had a nice camera. Most likely c.) All of the above.
