Last weekend I bought a new iron table for our porch, and although I didn't care for the finish on it, the size, shape, and style were perfect. It even had little fleur-de-lis designs which complement the large fleur-de-lis hanging over it (you can click on the pictures to enlarge them, if you'd like) ...
I knew when I bought it that I would be happier with it if it was black, but thought I would "give it a chance" and "live with it" for a few days. It wasn't bad, but every time I looked at it I thought, "You can be better."
Maybe now I'll be able to sit on the patio and enjoy my new table instead of sitting there thinking, "I've GOT to paint that table!"
Uh-oh ... you know what I just noticed? My pretty new table makes the old patio furniture look drab! Have you ever noticed that in the world of decorating one thing always seems to lead to another?
