A Few Accessories for the Conservatory

I’m sure Charlie doesn’t understand my desire to lighten the conservatory.

We've been using a pair of facing loveseats in the conservatory.

When I told him I bought a rattan bench he looked bewildered.

The chair fit easily in my hatchback.

Then I sent him a photo of a grey wicker chair and he said, “Ok!?” Later he asked where the chair is for.

I purchased the wicker chair from our local model home resale store.

I used a flat toile pillow from the living room for a seat cushion.

Some of these pillows will end up in the conservatory when the new bench arrives.

I also purchased 3 velvet pillows for $5 each.  I understand velvet is “in” now.

Finally, a blue enamel tray caught my eye.

I like how the colors are coming together.

For $8 I knew I’d find a spot for it.

Do you have a favorite shopping emporium?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. That’s a nice looking chair! What will happen to the loveseats? They’ve served you well for many years. I find it hard to part with furniture.
