Outfitting the Hobbs Bistro





Sooo...I've been wanting to get a cute little bistro table and chairs to put on my perfect porch. I finally found a perfect little fixer-upper at the thrift shop for thirty bucks....plus the paint to freshen it up...$50! Not bad...it is the table and chairs in the top two pictures. Of course I forgot to take a before...but it is still kind of a before because the table doesn't have a top yet. Do you like the seats? I redid them with the red...my new favorite color.

Then, after I had started on this little project, Brian came home from work with this other table and chair set that a co-worker was getting rid of. Cute, huh? Now I can't decide what to do with it. Repaint? Add cushions? It is a folding table, believe it or not, and the chairs are folding chairs. It's cuter in real life. I invite anyone who wants to come out here to see them...we'll even cook you something delicious and serve it to you out on our porch. But I need some advice....paint it white to match the other set? Or should I do it different and use it once we get our patio poured in the back? HELP!! I have only a tiny bit of good taste, and I used it all on the other table.

Look At Me!!

Look at Ben!! Finally!!! He isn't walking yet, but hopefully this is a step in the right direction (punny, huh?) He actually did this for the first time on Sunday during the combined fifth Sunday meeting in the gym. We kind of let him crawl off to the side, then he just stood up! We were shocked! Of course we couldn't clap and make a huge deal then...but he did it again this morning, and Madi and I gave him the appropriate responses this time.
