So many of my childhood memories were made sitting in one of these...learning to whittle from my Papa, day dreaming about life and "what we would be when we grew up", life lessons before and after we should have used them. Full hearts, heavy hearts, broken hearts, happy hearts. Sharing secrets ... beautiful.
.unlike an overly propped Pottery Barn shot, where we become slaves to too many outdoor accessories, these people got it right. A bit of fabric with coordinating pillows, and a same-color plant that pulls the eye upward. Painted furniture that matches the trim of the house for full integration. Nice, simple....quiet-chic
Painted wood floor: fill in any large gouges or scrapes, and sand the entire floor lightly. you can use nearly any paint on the floor, but if you're concerned about it rubbing off with traffic, talk to the people in the paint store/department. you can also get clear acrylic sealer to paint over the floor once it's dried and once cured, it'll protect the paint job.
