A Porch Pick-Me-Up (Or, 'Aqua Strikes Again')

My front porch has a fresh new look thanks to a little spray paint. Gosh, I love paint. Is there anything paint can't do? Besides, you know, deliver babies or write novels... I'm talking about paint-related stuff here.

(And just in case you're crazy, please know that my house number has been changed in photoshop)

Here's my porch last fall, and you can see that the adirondack chairs were a nice sagey green color...


But here's a close up:


See how sad my chairs were? They needed some serious love and a fresh coat of paint.

And thanks to Krylon's Catalina Mist spray paint, which might be one of my very favorite colors, even if it's ridiculously hard to find in my town because almost no one carries it except a craft store that starts with "M" and wants $6 a can and has mysteriously stopped issuing 40% coupons right when I needed them most....

... ahem. Thanks to the Catalina Mist paint, which might be one of my favorite colors, I have two new(ish) chairs and a fun pop of color on my front porch!

 

Oh, and I also have a pot of pansies. I can't forget about that.



Really though, who else loves aqua and bright red together? So fun! Y'all should come over and we'll have some iced tea on my aqua chairs and critique passers-by on their wardrobe choices. It'll be super fun.

  10. Definitely love the aqua and red together! Your front porch area is so welcoming. :) And kudos to you for changing the house numbers. I usually just block them with an ugly rectangle in Paint. :s Visiting from Thrifty Decor Chick. :)
