Magnolia Home Dining Room

HGTV’s Fixer Upper may be over, but you can still enjoy Joanna Gaines’ style by bringing home furniture from her Magnolia Home collection.

The Double Pedestal Dining Table is one of her most popular pieces. Inspired by old buildings from yesteryear, it features massive corbel brackets for its base. To give the piece the look of an architectural antique, Joanna used a weathered shop floor finish on the base as well as on the plank top. Sleek chairs let the table be the centerpiece. Their simple lines and spindled back for just a touch of detail.

This grand dining set will become a family favorite, and will help you celebrate traditions new and old. See it and the rest of the Magnolia Home collection at your local Art Van location.

Outdoor Furniture that Can Be Used Indoors

Outdoor furniture that looks like it belong indoors is a big trend for summer. Advances in materials and fabrics have made it possible to have fully upholstered furniture that are sturdy enough to withstand the weather. Here are three collections that look as sleek and polished as their indoor counterparts to create beautiful rooms indoors or out.

The Gila Collection brings chicness and style to your patio or deck. We love its gorgeous profile with curved arms and clean lines. It’s perfect for comfortable lounging as well as upscale entertaining. And it’s built to weather the elements as well as spills.

The Otis Dining Table brings an industrial and rustic feel to your backyard barbecue. The solid Acacia base in a contemporary dark walnut stain contrasts with the epoxy and cement top, for a look that’s perfect outdoors or in.

The straight lines of the Fenton Collection feature a perfectly irregular open basket weave, adding interest and style to your patio or deck. Plush cushions are doubled up for an inviting feel. And the materials are made to withstand the elements and look beautiful for years to come.

Create an outdoor breakfast room or laidback dinner spot with the Coronado Dining Collection. The see-through basket-weave design makes a distinctive design statement, while the plush cushions add comfort and a sharp color contrast.

Garden Tips: Getting Your Yard Ready for Spring

The weather has finally turned and that means not only can you enjoy the outdoors, it’s time to get your yard ready for spring planting and backyard barbecue season. Here are three projects to tackle this weekend:

1. Prune roses

Prune your roses before new growth emerges, to shape the plant and encourage new growth that can produce lots of buds. Here are instructions that will keep you in bloom.

2. Divide perennials

Plants like irises and hostas can spread like wildflower, but they are healthier when they have space. Anything that’s grown to be two to three times its size needs to be dug up and divided. Here’s what you need to know.

3. Get a handle on weeds

Weeds can make all of your hard work in the garden look messy. Pull weeds when they’re small to avoid having them go to seed, creating more weeds. A good layer of mulch will also help. Experts say a two-inch spread will hold moisture and discourage weeds.
