Great fall weather always gives me energy to get up and take things outdoors. Whether its a long hike, throwing around the ball or making a picnic, to me the crisp fall air and bright sunshine are just perfect for getting out before a long winter takes hold. For years I’ve loved the idea of taking a real dinner party outside for fall. I blame all those magazine spreads!
So when I had the chance to shop a sale from Everything But The House I knew I wanted to look for a table that I could refinish and use for outdoor events. Our backyard is really the best part of our home with wide expansive space and a pretty view. Why not show off our best asset to our guests rather than our kitchen which needs a remodel pretty badly?
When I was browsing the Washington, DC area sale I immediately jumped at bidding on this table. It was the perfect size and it came with two leaves to make it longer if needed. It needed some love but I ended up taking it home at $65. For local Everything But The House estate sales you can pick up your items, or you can have them schedule a delivery for an extra charge.
Now that I had my outdoor dining table ready to go, I decided it was time to throw on a blanket scarf and get to it. After all, having a nice warm soup and red wine outdoors at dusk with the vibrant leaves sounds just about perfect doesn’t it?!
