we live on a very friendly block. sometimes, a bit too friendly for my husband & my wallflower ways.
last summer, the neighbors across the street donated their wicker patio furniture to us. i could tell at one point it had been a very nice set of white wicker pieces but time had not been kind… the paint was all chipped & cracked and lots of pieces were broken and jutting out.
it was ripe for a crazy makeover
for whatever reason (insert any number of stupid excuses here), i never got to it and it sat outside all. winter. long. oops! needless to say, it got worse. so, i hauled by butt to home depot this weekend and purchased 4 cans of bright aqua spray paint.
and then i sprayed my little heart out.
i love them.
now i know this is no great revelation of home decor but it was pretty exciting for me who is generally cooped up behind a glowing laptop screen. i love how bright & unexpected they are on my porch and, at about $15 worth of paint, i won’t be sad when i have to throw them out in another year or so.
one final thought: i’m addicted. and not in a government psa on sniffing fumes kind of way, i think spray paint might be my new best friend. antique dealers in the southeastern pennsylvania area should be warned, i will be coming by soon and i will be purchasing anything that will look awesome with a crazy coat of paint on them. of course, when this all goes down, you – dear readers – will be the first to know!
