This Weekend's Project



I didn’t have a whole weekend to myself…my husband had plans for me, but I did manage to paint a love seat that was collecting dust in the basement.

Earlier this week I was reading a blog and studied a very pretty photo of a small outdoor living space, and the wheels started turning…. So the love seat that I told my husband to take to the dump just last week went from a very beat up white wicker piece to this…..

The space that the wicker is in, is the patio area off the sunroom. We lovingly refer to it as the "poop yard". When we got a dog we fenced the space in and added some grass to one area, it used to be called "Rusty's yard" because when we just had one dog that was a dignified term I thought...then we added another dog and it became the "poop yard!" Anyhow, I decided that this year I would like it to look as nice as it can for what it is... so I'm hoping when I have guests in the sunroom they just notice the loveseat and pots filled with flowers (I'll be adding more as soon as the weather warms up).

Wow, I'm glad I inspired you to do this! Black it so much better for outside. White is so hard to keep clean! It looks great!
