After the long winter, our balcony was all dirty and not really a place where you would love to sit outside. So after cleaning and getting rid of an old rack which was placed in the rear corner, there was quite a bit space left even though we already put up a table and two chairs. To search for ideas which would help making the balcony a bit cozier and more colorful, I went to a secondhand furniture store, called "Stilbruch" (see their site here). I have already been there a few times, and knew that their offer is always good for a surprise. Right when I entered the store, I saw this bamboo side table which was the perfect size for the corner of our balcony.
I also discovered another decoration accessory to go along with the bamboo table:
After paying 11 (!!) Euro for both, I went home and put them up on the balcony right away, together with some flowers I bought at the hardware store. And after all, I just looove how it turned out! So cozy and colourful! What do you guys think?
(We are using the bamboo table more as a low chair, just today I was sitting on it outside enjoying the sun, perfect choice :) )
