Reversible Outdoor Placemats

Hi Friends,
Are you glad it's Friday?

Yesterday I stenciled a set of 4 place mats for our outdoor patio table.
The table has a top with tiles in a sand color and I added a few extra terra cotta tiles left from our
inside floors to tie the look together as you walk outside.

Last Fall I found this set of four place mats perfect for the season
with a animal print background and sunflowers.
I think I found these at Home Goods.

Sure wish I could have purchased 2 more for when we sit 6 at this table.

Anyway, the  backside was a nice burlap.

So I decided to make them reversible with a design for the season.

I started by measuring and stenciling this design to the center.
 I had this one in my stash for a long time and I liked the flower style design
for the idea I had.

I used acrylic paints to do all the details.
I did not mix the paint with fabric medium this time
because I didn't  need a soft application.

Then to each side I added another design of a flower stem and leaves
using the stencil in reverse for the right placement.

Next I added a terra cotta flower to pull together the color of the tile
on the table and patio floor.
With the blue of the pool this terra cotta color is a great coordinating accent.

So at this point it looks like this below.

It's okay, but doesn't really look finished yet.

So I added a little off white sand color with another flower and added dots.
Dots can always make a design look complete.

After all were dry, the 4 place mats look like this on the table.

 Love the look with this pillow I found recently at Kohl's.

They were having a half price sale and I loved this pillow and knew the color would be perfect.

Up close you can see the flower is created in a crewel work design which 
gives the pillow a handmade look.

So that's it~
A reversible set of place mats.

Hope you all enjoy a great weekend.
See you soon.

Very pretty and a clever way to get another look with the placemats, Celeste! I like that you've basically got two looks for the price of one. The terracotta color in the flowers goes very well with your table.

Love the place mats - you really did a wonderful job on them. I never really looked at the back of them. Now you have 2 sets. Everything coordinates so well with your new flagstone.
Enjoy the pool and patio this weekend.

NanaDiana said...

Look how CUTE they turned out and I love that pillow that pulls the colors out of there, too.! Great job and FUN!

Celeste, the placemats are perfect! I love Terra Cotta & Blue together. I have been thinking about you, and I was so happy to see your post on Bloglovin. For whatever reason Feedburner I think has bit the dust! Sometimes I will get a Bloggers post but fot the main stream they just don't come through to my email anymore. From what I have read, I am not alone. You know I fell in Love with your Potters Bench so my Hubby built me one! Our Gardens are getting close to being done(I just had to use it before painting it), then I will paint the Bench. Need to catch up with you soon!!
Have a Wonderful Week End My Friend~
Huggs, Nancy

Celeste, the placemats are perfect! I love that you have made them reversible. That way you get 8 for the price of 4! Don't we all love bargains like that!

The pillow is beautiful. Great colors for summer.

Happy outdoor entertaining to you.
