Today I’m sharing the new garden bench we added between the brick pillars we recently added to the side yard. I found a metal bench online that I liked but of course they wouldn’t ship to Alaska and the local store didn’t have any in stock, so I went into the store to see if they had anything similar hoping they’d have a decent option or two on sale for the end of the season.
They had this bench which is very similar to the one I saw on the website but it was $30 more! Luckily I had printed the online option and taken it with me so I sweetly asked the sales guy if he could price match their own website since they didn’t carry the one I really wanted. He must have wanted to clear out the last one they had because he quickly agreed and offered to carry the big box to the register for me!
On the way to the registers I realized that the outdoor pillows I’d been eyeing were on 50% off sale so I snagged a couple of those as well when I noticed that several of the options available tied in the navy, green and aqua I already had going on in the yard. My favorite is the little bird pillow, which I got two of! They look pretty great on the fire pit chairs.
And they coordinate perfectly with the two over-sized navy pillows I got at Sams club earlier this summer. I plan to paint an aqua pineapple design on the drop cloth pillow I have on the sectional and will add navy grain sack stripes to the ones on the table chairs over on the deck so there’s a cohesive color scheme throughout the area.
Stop back by tomorrow to see how I finished off the brick columns with some more fun aqua accessories!
