Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

Vintage Tybee Island finds, you’ll never guess where!

We have what’s known as the Tybee Island “mall” .  You put by the side of the road anything you no longer need and someone comes along and picks up exactly what they need.  I’ve been a “buyer” and a “seller” of the Tybee Mall!  Here are two chairs that someone did not want- I’m sure because of the condition of the rattan and bamboo.  However I am a rusty, crusty, the more chipped the better fan and these chairs were right up my alley.   I had some fabric that I purchased from Ballard Backroom in Atlanta   when it was on super sale- I believe under $8 a yard. I had our local cushion maker make some cushions.  So the total cost per chair was maybe around $60.  The style and the look is just perfect!  I added two planters that Ipurchased from the Garden Party fundraiser with Historic Savannah Foundation.  These chairs and planters are the perfect final touch to Dutton Waller Cottage!

Isn’t this planter beautiful? Even better- buying it was for a great cause!
