Staging the new coffee table

Hi friends,
Thanks for joining me today. I am so thrilled with my $18 Goodwill tables that I painted and distressed with my husband's sander last weekend. My friend and fellow decorator, Suzie, shared her painting tips with me which I followed to the tee. She stressed painting on primer first with a brush then using a Valspar spray paint from Lowe's in a satin finish. I'm having fun trying out different items from around the home on top of the two tables = one coffee table. My friend and fellow educator, Jane, had a great suggestion to get a piece or two of glass to put on top. Right now, I'm a happy camper with the fresh pink and purple hydrangeas cut from our backyard.

Here's a peek at our backyard that my husband has been landscaping. It's an interesting backyard in that it's two leveled- kinda strange but we're trying to make it work. We have dreams of adding a paver patio and fireplace. If you squint your eyes you might see the many hydrangea bushes that I'm cutting the hydrangeas from:

I really enjoy sitting on the deck too, when it's not one million degrees outside:

Thanks for stopping by today friends. Stop back by again soon. Some posts I'm working on:
- A Love Letter to My Dad
- Happy 4th of July Decorating
-The Brew Crew Family Dinners
-Summer Fun Coupon Idea for Kids
What about you? What are some burning questions you like to ask me?
Hope you're having a wonderful summer and staying cool-
Take care,
