A Front Porch Makeover



Mercy, it's been busy over here! Between the painting and gardening and well, LIFE, I'm exhausted. But it's a good exhausted. You know that kind right? The one that feels so good inside because you're doing stuff you love. Well you may remember our flea market finds a couple of posts back. I finally found, actually my dear husband found {he's just the bestest husband!}, a vintage tulip backed glider and chair set that I've wanted for sooooo long. Usually when I see them, they're out of my price range, but this one was a match.





It was in great shape really, because someone had re-painted it not too long back, and had taken very good care of them. Sadly, it was black, and this girl's got to have color! And I wanted classic RED! So, red it was! I swoon just looking at them now, and yes, I have already had my morning coffee sitting on that glider, TWICE.  







 My love for spray painting furniture has been re-kindled since my post on decorating for renters. And to let you in on a little secret, I do have a favorite spray paint. I've tried a few and this one's definitely my favorite. It goes on beautifully, and includes a primer. Anything that's going to eliminate a laborious step for me, sign me up! And, do you see that marvelous color on that paint can? That's for the other outdoor metal chairs that we found at the flea market. I'm trying to build some excitement here. Are you feeling it?


 



I hope that you are all enjoying this glorious weekend. See you next week.....
