outdoor furniture.

our backyard is finally starting to look like somebody cares about it! plants, furniture, a grill and a little organization will do wonders... and i am so happy to see it coming together. unfortunately, our outdoor seating is very limited and patio sets can be expensive. most of you probably saw this on d*s this morning, but i just wanted to talk about it a little more. 

these outdoor tables from lab31 really caught my eye and got me thinking... could this be a possible diy project? i have seen countless end tables and coffee tables that have a very similar metal base, and have even seen the bases sold alone when the glass had been broken or scratched. what better way to reuse them by painting them a fantastically bright color and using them outside? and while i certainly wouldn't be able to create the same caning effect (made from perforated steel) as lab31, some radiator screening could be painted and stretched diagonally to create a similar effect. do i need another project to add on top of my ever-growing list? no, but... i certainly will think twice next time i see a metal base like that...
