Brunch For A Family Of 3 On The River

Happy Tablescape Thursday!  It's been awhile since I participated in my favorite online blog event.  I am so excited to be able to join this week's celebration.
We are spending our last Summer week at the Dacha.  It's so hard to leave this place whenever we get here.  Daniel's first day back to school is the Tuesday after the Labor Day holiday.  Below are photos of a table I put together on the river.  I had a lot of fun setting this table.    Especially, with nature as my back drop.

The foldable metal chairs above oddly were the inspiration behind this table setting.  We found them at a nearby antique shop for $10.00 each.  They were structurally in great shape.  As you can see they just needed to be repainted.  Papa Dan thought they would be great paired with a small foldable table for dining at the river or even ocean beach.  Naturally, I began to visualize the 3 of us dining on the river with the newly acquired chairs.
Papa Dan spray painting the chairs a hunter green using Rust-Oleum's high gloss.    The little guy supervising to ensure quality workmanship.
 I created the no-sew table topper with tartan fabric,tassel trim,sharp scissors and a glue gun.  It took about 20 minutes to make.  I purchased the fabric and trim from Joann's fabrics about a 30 minutes drive from the cabin.

Oh, Julio! It's so nice to get a new post from you! I was wondering what was happening at the Dacha! You have gifted us with another stunning table! It's not just the table, it's the amazing placement! What a view! I also love what you did with those chairs! What a beautiful, rich color! And, of course, it goes perfect with everything else! Your son is growing up! He is so handsome!

This is fabulous.. I love that you used a hot glue gun.. Still might have only taken 25 minutes with a sewing machine! LOL.. teasing of course. I love the backdrop, omg, priceless. The colors of the trees when mixed with the blues of the table and the glasses.. amazing. Hey, did you trim the loops off of those placemat/chargers? xo marlis

I am greatly weighed down by your opinions for that specific tale. A additional deeper and staged expertise could well be very fine for me
