The Tea House

This is my tea house in my back yard, I have had it for over a year and it is finally ready to use. It took most of that time for my hubby to wire it, insulate it, sheet rock it and we paid to have the sheet rock finished and textured. So it is just like any room in a house, but no water, I am working on that....... you know my hubby isn't going to like that. I put in the flower beds this year and have plans for more as time goes by.

This isn't a very good picture as it was getting dark when I took it. You can see the wrought iron fencing in the background, I got 5 sections of it at a garage sale, the gal said she paid $125.00 for all the pieces, she sold it to me for $20.00. What a bargain ...right.?!

I have been furnishing it with garage sale finds I want it to have that shabby look. We got the day bed for $20.00, they wanted $45. 00 but came down. We bought an almost new twin size mattress, no spots, she said she only used it a couple of times, I made the 2 embroidered pillows, and plan on adding more of different styles, as I get them made.
The chandelier, is also a garage sale find. I stripped it down and painted it white and all the dangles are made by me from semiprecious stones. The lone drapie ones are a necklace of semiprecious stone chips that I reconfigured, there were 4 strands I paid $1.00 for it. We had to hang it so high because the door would have hit it if it was any lower.

I got the mirror at a garage sale for $1.00 and I added the flowers and ribbon to cover up some boo boo's. The little table is also from a GS I have used it my daughter used it for a while then gave it back, so it is in use again. I like pieces like that, you can put them in any room and they look fine.
Well that is the update on the tea house, I posted last year a little about it, I think we were calling it the play house then. Stay tuned for more..
