The church pew is off our front porch and the two bistro chairs are off the back porch. Once I had the “new” furniture in place, I just added pillows to soften the whole look.

    Great use of mis-matched items to create one cohesive space. The tufted chairs are lovely as well as the white french farmhouse table. Thanks you for posting this inspiration.
