Have just come out of 6 weeks of re-paving work and now I am into something else!
These lounge chairs have been a real hit with guests.....of course they don't belong in a garden, they are not outside chairs, they are lounge chairs, but I built an area around them, and almost every guest feels the need to go and sit in them and take a selfie about this dumb arsed host who puts inside chairs outside in a garden!! And they are sooooo comfortable.
They were never going to stand the test of time, and they have been high maintenance, me having to cover them with plastic every night and any time it looks like rain.
I always had in mind I would make a couple of concrete lounge chairs out of them, finish them in light grey paving paint and put some really bright scatter cushions on them!
Well today I made a start.......
Tomorrow, the sides and the back of the first chair (ironically called a 'freedom chair') and I am excited about the finished product now. I am going to have comfortable red velvet seat cushions and a mass of these bright scatter cushions that I can take in each night....
I would be lost without a project, some of the ideas are a bit loopy but, as long as guests like them and keep coming....I will keep doing them!
The concrete chair transformation is progressing......
It's slow because I have to let each bit of concreting set properly before moving on.
I am getting a bit more confident it's going to work though!
Just hope the only 'piles' I get are piles of good reviews!!!
