For the love of an aqua chair…

While on a trip to Virginia….

~ ~ ~ ~ we made a side trip to the famous Lucketts Vintage Store.

I came home with this:


I knew I wanted to paint it a bright color…

~ ~ ~ ~ so off to the garage for a new “outfit”.


I bought a quart of Valspar paint in the color “Well Water”….

~ ~ ~ ~ not quite sure whey they called it “Well Water”.

So here it is…can you see it????


That pretty pop of Aqua Blue in the corner?


Can you see that gorgeous color of “Well Water”


For you see, I am bringing in more pops of pretty blues in the upper porch.


Beautifully tucked in among the plants…


As if were meant to be there all along…


Giving this plant a pretty place to sit…


As it fills me with great “joy” to see this pretty color as I sit and enjoy the view!

    Hello again, princess!,
    I’m not sure why one has to go through a second step when leaving a comment at your blog. First you fill out your name, email address and blog and then you get another form asking for your WordPress user name and password. Have you tried commenting on your blog?

  9. Your blue chair is just the perfect pop of color on the porch!

  10. Bright turquoise. Why not make a statement,. Love it.!

  11. I love the chair and the plant. It is so bright and cheery.


  12. She is pretty Shirley and she looks beautiful in her new home amongst all that pretty greenery!

  13. Shirley, this is great! I love the way you picked up the aqua in your pillows! It all looks so pretty! I don’t think I would ever leave this porch; I love it!

  14. Shirley, I love the chair and the color. I can never figure where they get these names for colors.I can’t think of one just now but some don’t evoke a thought of any color.
    What ever they call it, it works. Looks fab in that corner with the beautiful pothos.
    I will be attending the conference and I will be linking up.
    Blessings, Ginger

  15. Love the Well Water on your porch Shirley! I always thought it would be a fun job to name paints or OPI nail polish shades!

  16. You KNOW I am all about a pretty blue chair, Shirley. 🙂 Love this!

  17. It looks fantastic, Shirley. Love the color, too. But, Well Water? I’m with you about how they arrive at some of the names.

  18. For a second I thought I was at my grandmother’s. I know she had a chair just like this.

  19. Shirley, your chair is PERFECT! Perfect color, perfect shape, perfect spot! 🙂

  20. I love your chair’s new outfit! The pop of turquoise in the corner of your porch really brings the space to life. Crazy paint name – I’ve never seen well water that looks like that! ;0)

  21. Hi, Shirley: Not only is that my favorite color, I love the way you intermingled the plants around it. Just gorgeous! I love it.

  22. Oh Shirley, this chair is TOO pretty!!! I really love it on your porch with all your other furniture. That really is a great color! What a nice place to sit and enjoy the view.

    Thanks for your comments on my “Mountain Treasures” post. I hope you and your husband enjoy your “Back Roads of North Carolina” book. 🙂

    Have a great weekend.


  23. I love that pretty color of blue you’re adding to your porch. That was a good choice for that chair. Hope you’re having a nice weekend so far.

  24. It’s the perfect compliment to that fabulous patio set!

  25. This works so beautifully!

  26. Oh that is an absolutely gorgeous color! I need to find an excuse to get it:P And I love love how you made it the home of that beautiful plant! Wonderful idea!!

  27. Love the decor of the color and what you used the chair for. Added a nice touch to your other patio features.
