A Beachy Tablescape on The Back Porch

I just refinished a dining table in the back porch. It used to be black and brown. The new color inspired me to do a beachy tablescape.

The handles of the flatware are genuine turquoise. I found them on Ebay years ago.

I love how the dining set turned out. I used AS's chalk paints "French linen" and "Robin Blue".
The placemats are some of the ones I bought from antique and yard sale shopping last weekend. I got 6 of these for $3.00 and I just love the design and the colors. I wanted the design to show more so I did not use any plate chargers.

The salmon colored dinner plates are from West Elm and the shells salad plates are from TJ Maxx. They are not new. I've had them for a while now.
I used 2 types of napkin rings and I bought them from Kohl's in FL.
on clearance last year.
The blue stems are from Pier 1, mermaid stemmed glasses from TJ Maxx and the etched wine glasses were from an estate sale locally.
The shell place card holders were from Williams Sonoma.

This coral candelabra is from Homegoods. I bought it last year when my daughter had a baby. I packed it in my hand carry but they took the luggage when we boarded a small plane and when I arrived home, this candle holder was crumbled into pieces. I had to glue it back together.

John found the lighthouse from Ross and said "for your tablescape", lol. I trained him really well.

The starfish salt and pepper shakers came from my sister who lives in Illinois. She feeds my tablescaping obsession too.



 I thought I would show you how the dining set looked before I painted it. Sorry I could not find a picture of the table without a tablecloth but you get the idea, it's brown on top with black legs.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I published this prematurely and did not realize it until I got a comment, so now I am trying to finish it so I can post it before I go back to FL this weekend. My daughter is having another baby. Please pray for her and the baby. She just had the twins last year and she is having another C section. I really appreciate your prayers.
