The need to be outdoors…

it was such a beautiful day on Tuesday i felt i had to get outside….  I had Wednesday off so i started thinking about projects i could do outside and decided to paint my adirondack chairs….they are a mess – so i’m going to give them a new life.  There is no question that they need some love…right now they are looking very sad in their very shabby paint – been out in the weather a bit too long.

Originally they were faux painted to sit beside a swimming pool surrounded by beautiful gardens in the back yard of a Showhouse that I worked on with a local landscaper…..that was ages ago!  I had my mom paint them a light blue reminiscent of the water with faux rhododendrums and morning glories on the backs.  They were so pretty.   Just look at them now!

Well, i just happen to have some paint left over from Little Paris….I am going to scrape these chairs up a bit and then apply the paint.  I am going to try to save the rhododendrums…we’ll see about that.

Voila!  They are beautiful again!

    Your chairs are beautiful again. It is amazing what a coat of paint will do. Your mom did a good job painting the rhododendrums and morning glories on the backs.
    Happy working outdoors….
