Last year I promised myself a place to read beneath the cherry tree when it blossomed in the spring. I cannot explain how much I love this tree. Its branches have gone from buds to blooms in just two days, so today’s task was to keep my promise to myself.
A couple of years ago I picked up an old wicker rocking chair for $5. It’s been used here and there, but most recently it’s been sitting in the basement. Not much to look at.
The wicker table was a thrift store find.
A trip to Home Depot yielded three cans of Rustoleum spray paint in Spa Blue. It reminds me of a piece of Pine Cone Hill furniture, or an Adirondack chair out of a catalog.
It’s just what I was hoping for. I’m pleased with the results. Don’t you love what a little paint can do?!
I know where I’ll be sitting when the little ones enjoy a backyard picnic tomorrow!
Every spring I feel like our cherry tree turns the backyard into something of a paradise. My blue wicker is the finishing touch that begs you to go sit beneath it and inhale the lovely scent of the blossoms while you lose yourself in a good book.
Wish you were here to join me!
