Tea Room from Old Windows and Doors



H and I usually sit on the front porch to drink coffee in the morning,  but today we decided to have our coffee in the back yard.

  While we were out there,  I couldn't resist taking photo's of the gorgeous trumpet vine that is growing up the back and on top of the tea room.....and of course,  a few photo's of the tea room.

H constructed my tea room several years ago (about 8 or 9)  from old doors and windows that we accumulated over the years.....longest yard sale trip and misc.  yard sales.    The tea room sits right to the side of my studio.



I haven't made any changes to the tea room since you last saw it,   but some of you may not have seen that post so I'll show you around again......



The tea room is not very big....3 doors wide and 2 doors deep.....


Just big enough to get in....sit down....and enjoy a cup of tea


H made the pink bench from a headboard and a jenny lind footboard

There are shelves around the top of the tea room that hold everything I need to have a tea party.....


I also store some of my party dishes on the shelves.....you can see a stack of them on the shelf....in the corner.


I made this wreath from odds and ends cups and saucers.  

 I have a short tutorial on how I made it....here's a link to that post....  http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2015/03/how-to-make-china-tea-cup-wreath.html

I have an outdoor  sitting area on each side of the tea room

You can see some of H's squash plants in this photo.        H has his squash in several containers around the yard and they have lots of yellow blooms on them....he picked the first squash a few days ago and we had it for lunch.    The squash plant at the end of the settee is in a old iron  wheel barrow that belonged to my granddad     The squash plant back by the clothes line is in a large planter and if you look close you will see there is a smaller squash plant in the vintage washing machine next to it.


Here's a different angle that shows another squash plant in an old garden cart........

I hope you enjoyed a look in the tea room and around the yard.....come back soon......you're always welcome!

  5. Penny I absolutely love your tea house and area around it. I have one question. ..does it get hot in there? I had to ask since it is made from doors and windows. I love how you decorated your tea room, so romantic! And that wreath! When we finish moving to Germany I will have to look at your post on how you made it. Maybe make one German themed. Thank you for sharing!

  6. OMG Penny. Are you taking reservations for overnight stays in your tea room? :) I just hosted a tea party for 49 friends, which was so much fun. I invited all those women who helped me make it through my life. Your wreath is magical and I plan on following your instructions to make one. I collect butter pats so might make mine using them.

  7. Oh my goodness, your tea room is ADORABLE!!! I would love something like this in my back yard to use as a studio. I love how you incorporated a bench onto the front between the two garden doors.
