Sew a set of napkins using fabric like this printed linen and cotton mix from Laura Ashley, £21 per metre. Tutorials such as this one from Go To Sew will show you how to achieve perfect mitred corners.

Decorate a plain planter such as this zinc trough for £12.49 from Homebase using acrylic paints, which can be picked up from £1.50 at places like Hobbycraft.

Fresh lime dining area

a5b040e28250ddf8a595daf6cf8151baI really like this take on the classic pairing of Eames DSW chairs and a Saarinen Tulip Table.  Found on Pinterest, I really like the lime feature wall matching the chairs, and the large vase of fresh tulips.

Biergarten dining room

I really like german beer garden benches and tables and always wonder why more people don’t use them in interiors- they’re sturdy, cheap and look great. This is another image I found whilst scouring Pinterest, from a blog post looking at five examples where they are used indoors.

InteriorLooksDIY4Just one job that it pretty integral to the whole look.

Find a trestle table and bench set like this one on Amazon for £56.71 (I am amazed it this price- vintage sets go for hundreds online, this is also a complete bargain compared to buying a dining set).

Using a spraypaint suitable for metal, use this tutorial for tips and paint the metal legs of the set.

Distress the wooden bench and table tops. There’s some good ideas here.
