HAVING A DECORATIVE RETREAT BY THE WATER
needn’t be relegated to folding chairs and threadbare towels. Enlist items from your attic or basement and recast them with paint and color as a waterside entertaining grouping. Gather cast-off men’s striped shirts for fabric yardage and an array of accessories that are already blue in color or can easily be painted. Set it all up with a view of the water and put your feet up for a long, relaxing afternoon.
A mosaic round consisting of broken dishes makes a colorful surface. A chair back is dressed up with an old button-down shirt.
