She's addicted to spray painting things black. Heehee. Her challenge was to show projects painted in other colors (although black or white are OK!)--which I just happened to be working on the very day I found out about this!!!
So. We got this ice cream shop table and chairs as a wedding gift from my parents 6 years ago. It was on our patio in our first apartment and has been with us ever since. It's moved all over the house, inside and out. This is the BEFORE.
Cute enough--but beige?? C'mon now!!
I've always wanted to paint it. And turquoise is my new favorite color.
So far, I've got two chairs done in the turquoise. Two took the whole can so now I've gotta get another can. I may do the others in PINK!!
I did decide on black for the table bottom, just so I can haul it inside when I need an extra, throw on a tablecloth and it won't clash.
And here it is.
Currently, it's on the back patio so now I'll be on the look-out for matching accessories to jazz it up back there. Our yard and patio leave a lot to be desired but this can be my "inspiration piece" to pull together the whole area.
I realized when I previewed this post that I had one napkin horizontal and one vertical...so I took more later, in the evening light! I like this better, anyway, plus I added more accessories.
I was going to spray the wood seats and table-top a different color, but the orange paint I got was a gloss and I didn't like how it went on. Maybe a terra cotta could work better.
Better yet, I'll make cushions and tie them on--the chairs are hard, anyway. For now, these cute napkins at least give you the idea!!
Since fall is approaching and the temps here get bearable in the next two months or so (no kidding), I'm definitely inspired to have a beautiful patio by then!! I'll keep you posted...
Thanks for visiting!! I can't wait to see what everyone else did!!
