A Turquoise Table

I have always loved and am drawn to the color turquoise. Jewelry, clothes and anything for my home.

A couple years ago I found this little bistro set in the trash where I worked. I thought it was the perfect size for the corner in the man cave for extra sitting.

In January when I was hauling Christmas decorations back downstairs I notice my bistro set had been moved from the man cave's pool room to my holiday closet! Apparently it wasn't manly enough with the heart shaped chairs. lol I thought to myself "Well poohey on him, if he doesn’t want my bistro set in his 'man cave', I want it upstairs in my parlor!"

I went to my stash closet and started pulling material out. I decided on these turquoise pieces I found over time at my thrift store for the tablecloth. They sell material as "panels" for $1.49 each.

A couple weeks ago I found these awesome dessert plates for .49 each. And the little 4 piece porcelain espresso set at another thrift store for $3. It was still brand new in the package.

The rescued little table dressed up in turquoise makes me happy. Why would anyone want to throw it away?

What color makes you happy?

  5. Thanks so much for linking to my Turquoise Tuesday Party! One day, I will get a button!

  6. I love your table settings!~ This is so cute! You really are gifted when it comes to pulling things together like this!

    I love blues and sage greens!

  7. Love your bistro set. I might have to try making the newspaper pots. I have started some seeds already inside to plant once the soil is warm enough but ran out of regular pots. Great idea and fun to make witht the kids. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Hope you will come back for another look.

  8. Annie The good thing about the plates is that when I get tired of them I wont feel guilty for putting them away for that price.

    Dreams of Perfection I was thinking the same thing about it being a romantic table set and trying to come up with a way to make the setting more romantic also.

    Pubbler Thanks for stopping by and for the compliment.

    Cottage Dreamers The treasures I find in the trash are the best. I love the price! ;)

    Carmie Thanks for hosting such a fun party.

    Precious thank you. I love all blues and greens. I think that's why I'm so attracted to turquoise. A little of both. hehe

    Red Door Home I know my son had fun making them with me. We ended up with way too many, but hey, it kept him busy and he had fun.
