New Out Door patio table with the free slab of granite from Lowes! Got to love being the first to buy countertops at the new Lowes. I picked these flowers from down the street. They have lasted for days!

Things to be completed: Paint pub table a black satin finish to match chair legs.
Make slip covers for the two bar stools. The fabric is a pink and LIME GREEN floral print by Alexander Henry (similar to Amy Butler) I ordered it with the black and white fabric. We shall see how I do sewing...
The two pillows are for the hammock from Home Depot. I have been eyeing them forever! They are indoor outdoor, so I plan to keep them safe inside until the weather perks up!Close up of the chair... waiting for the new slip covers!
The next IKEA find, a piece of cabinetry for the gaping hole between the fridge and stove. (Used to be the wine cooler, which now lives in the mud room.)
After dragging Matt and Bubba around the store for about 2 hours, not to mention 2 trips we got all the pieces together, and assembled it! The butcher block top is being stained daily and takes about 2 weeks until it is usable! We also have double the amount of extra butcher block with 4 takers for cutting boards! I also got a huge butcher block cutting board for myself!
I already can't keep the pets off this guy! How does it look with the wall color? I'm pretty pleased!
The turtle was a random find that Bubba had to have. But you know what, I love it!
Lastly, I took all the stuff off the hutch so it could be displayed. I will be adding more glass to the top level in various shades of green and white. The two vases and pot will soon hold aloe and some twigs from the blooming trees!
Hope you enjoyed the room, and please give me your opinions!

Oh, and a tree fell down in the backyard! We hoisted the sucker back up and tied it to the fence. And it's still standing... for now!
My lovely house in the snow... care to sit in the hammock?
