Choose Your Spot

We chose a flat, grassy area about 10 feet x 10 feet, but this concept works in almost any space.

Arrange the Pieces

Preassembled trellises (#6537) define a space for Adirondack chairs (model FA20U) that go together with hand tools. Set containers of blooming plants or small potted trees on pavers to create a cozy garden experience.

Finish with Easy Accessories

The Adirondack stool (model AO21U), allen + roth™ pillows (#493175, #493174), and two easy projects -- a stack-it-up table and painted jars -- ensure you’ll have time to savor this sanctuary.

Table made from stacked pots

Simple Garden Table

Two 12-inch terra-cotta pots (#94453), a saucer (#94459), and easy-to-install hardware (inside the pots) assemble into a sturdy garden-inspired table.

Pretty Pillow Accents

Make chairs cozy and colorful with nature-themed allen + roth™ outdoor pillows (#493175, #493174).

Jelly-jar lanterns

Trellis Decor

Add personality and charm to trellises with an easy jelly-jar project that holds cut flowers by day as a vase and offers candlelight at night as a lantern. Paint a stripe on a glass jelly-jar light globe (#220231), attach a wire hanger, and hang from a cup hook screwed into the trellis.
