Enter Dollar Tree save my lackluster, yet functional, picnic table and give me a spot to read and relax while the kiddos run through the sprinklers. I spotted these fun placemats and they just happened to be the perfect color! As I was leaving the store, the felt coasters were screaming my name. They were just too cute, so I grabbed a few of them.
To make my table runner, I stitched the place mats together. I then stitched on a few of the coasters to add more vibrant color. The "rug" is also made of place mats stitched together.
I couldn't stop my frugality there. I picked up the two chairs at the thrift store for a few dollars each. Don't they look super with that new shiny red coat of paint?! The little wicker table I inherited from a couple of girls going around the neighborhood playing "big, bigger, best". If you have no clue what that is.........it is a game where you go house to house trading unwanted items and try to end up with the biggest and best item at the end of the game. I still feel slightly guilty that I traded a pool noodle for this cute little gem of a table.
