Oil Cloth for Outdoor Furniture

Hi Friends…I hope you had a good weekend. On Sunday I spent a lot of time sitting on my sofa recovering from Saturday. Yes, the party went well and the Farmers Market Opening Day was awesome too, so it is understandable that I officially crashed from the high of it all. I finally pulled it together enough to clean the kitchen and feed my family leftover hors d’oeuvres for dinner last night. Shockingly my house was not quite the mess I expected so I was free to just sit and be a little bit of a vegetable.

So in the run up to the antics of the last 48 hours, I really never got my intended post up on Friday. I am sorry. So here it is now….All about oil cloth…The magic of which can not be understated when working with garden furniture. I have two picnic tables whose paint jobs simply do not fare well in New England. My answer is oil cloth….it makes them new every season with whatever I feel I want them to look like. It is possibly the handiest stuff for outdoor dining and decorating and I think a whole collection of pieces that fit you garden furniture are unbelievably useful.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
