I have wanted a bistro set for a long time. There is something cozy and comforting about a small table and chairs tucked into a secluded space, something inviting and relaxing. I look at them, but never seem to find the right one, at the right price.
Recently there was a Groupon Goods offer for a bistro set for $109, regularly $209. It looked pretty cute, had the requisite curliness, but without things like ladybugs or hummingbirds or anything else that I am not especially enamored with thematically. But still, I am not an impulse buyer. I waited for Mr. AC to come home and asked if he thought it would be ok. I had investigated the source website and it looked like a good deal.
But, because I snoozed, by the time I hit 'buy' it was sold out. They sold 450 of these in less than a day. At least the darker colored one that I wanted. But they still had ones they called 'antique white'. Well, ok, I can do antique white. So I bought.
When it came, it was not really white, but instead a rather sandy color, the same color in the bricks of our house. So quite a good match! I was very excited to put it together. So excited I decided to mostly do it myself.
So here is the story, scrapped with Maya de Groot's Nuts 'n' Bolts alpha and papers. Additional credits - Maya de Groot Not So Basic: Blacks and Contrast.
I am quite pleased with the purchase. The alcove outside the front door is protected from the wind so very warm and sunny, the perfect place for afternoon tea or just a break to get warm and listen to the fountains.
