Juniper berries

I chose the pillows because of the color.
It reminded me of juniper berries.
Which led me to a fresh coat of paint for the metal chairs.
No more bright white.
To finish them off, I'll have the cushions reupholstered in Chilewich fabric.
I'll be able to hose them off.
No more Central Oregon dust....
Still need to get rid of the mildew on the deck.

Those pillows are so pretty- especially with the fabric you chose. Nice colors all around.

I can't get over the mildew issue. Who knew?!

What about an outdoor carpet in the meantime?

Love your cozy little porch. I bet it's perfect in the evenings:)

We built the back deck to enjoy the evenings specifically. 10 degrees cooler in the backyard at night. A huge plus in the desert.
