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:

~ ~ ~ ~ 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????

Summer Porch

I was on the lookout for 2 chairs for the porch…

I had this vision in mind…chairs that you could envision looking great outside…

…..with the feel of indoor furnishings.

I was reading a post of Kelly’s at Eclectically Vintage…

………………..I heard the chorus of the Angels…singing Hallelujah……you found them!

She wrote about walking into Home Depot to buy paint…

…..and there it was…the set she was searching hither and yonder for.

After a couple of emails between Kelly and I, Kelly informed me that the set was on sale…half price!!

………………..I heard the chorus of the Angels again…..singing Hallelujah..Hallelujah.

I just wanted two chairs…you can only buy this style in a set….

…..but for half price…it was a no brainer!!…

DSC_2297

The original intention was to add 2 chairs to the front porch…but now I have a love seat and table as a bonus…

…..so hence, plans changed…

And enter the snowball effect…moving furniture all around the porches…

The best place was on the upper back porch…

DSC_2290

Previously we just had a table and two chairs in that space…

Now, we can have “company” out there…to sit and enjoy wonderful conversation, wave to the golfers….

…..and yell at the deer eating my plants!

DSC_2296

And my rusty, chippy table fit perfectly between the loveseat and chair…

…..I think that table is due for a new paint job!

And KariAnne…I’ve been spraying my ivy with dish soap…The winnebago has left the building….

Added a couple of Pottery Barn outdoor pillows for that punch of color…
