I've been doing a spot of gardening! Well, when I say gardening it's more like buying a few plants that I like the look of, putting them in pots and hoping they survive. I'm not very green fingered to say the least. I also painted the terracotta pots black with masonry paint. I'm rather pleased with the contrast against the white of the Bertoia chairs.
The chairs are superb, I'm so glad I found and bought them. A bonus is that they don't easily blow over like the orange Panton chairs we were using before.
There will be more of the outside coming in soon hopefully, we are at last going to be ripping out the 25 year old uPVC patio doors and replacing them with bi-fold doors which will consist of two panels like we have now but they will hinge in the middle to open right up. Our small balcony should seem so much bigger because only one door slides open at the moment which makes it difficult to access the other half of the balcony easily.
Below are a few shots of the new chairs and table which was a bargain at 50 quid instead of 350! The boat is moored below our flat and the owners have been lovingly renovating it for a few years now. Oh and that's the Red Arrows in the last pic who just happened to be flying past a couple of weekends ago...
