Inspiration: Outdoor furniture

I continue to inspire for the great outdoors and the trend that is hot in 2012 is to turn the old into new. Environmentally friendly – just like everything else in today’s society. It’s also really hot to take indoor furniture outside. Personally, I can see myself with a favourite leather arm chair under the closest apple tree :)…

Recycling of teak has also been seen at interior design expositions in Sweden. Very popular is recycled teak from old houses and boats, which is obviously a better choice than FSC-classed teak.

I remember when I painted an old, worn-out garden furniture set out in the countryside where I grew up. It was a big success and stayed in style for many years :)

The biggest piece of advice I can give to those of you who want to paint outdoor furniture is to take care of the preparation work. There are no shortcuts for a good result. Clean, dry, sand properly and the apply a base coat. In this way, the results will last for many garden parties, without flaking.

LOVE M

    Adored all these pics! I’m copying the idea of the first one for my patio, a kind of rug made of little stones to individualize the seating area. Lovely weekend Maria! XoXo

    Provridningen går säkert bra, och visst är det roligt att vistas runt hästar!

    Hello Maria and wonderful post! My husband JUST commented {yesterday} how outdoor furniture is starting to resemble indoor furniture. I’m looking forward to pulling up a chair or laying in a hammock with a good book as soon as this weather warms :) Good tip regarding repainting outdoor furniture! I can’t tell you how many times I painted with no prep and regretted doing so!

    Thanks for stopping by today! I’m following you now and looking forward to exploring your blog!

    Have a lovely day ~

        Lol! Yep! We are praying too! Just returned from a walk w/ our girls – and it was lightly snowing.. Seattle is having a late – long winter season!

        BTW, my husbands Grandfather was born in Sweden :) I love the simplicity of Swedish design and .. those Mora clocks – wonderful!

        Enjoy your weekend!

    Somehow the Europeans just get it when it comes to living outdoors and have no fear bringing indoor furniture out to the terrace. Lovely images and inspiration.
