Don’t worry. My emotional well-being is just fine. However, I am exploring the color blue and introducing it in a few places in the exterior of my house. As I shared with you recently, I had several new doors installed on my house. Since I transitioned from bright red doors to neutral white, my outdoor spaces have been craving a little color. It’s still too early to start adding flowers, so I thought in the the meantime I would revamp a few of my outdoor accessories.
I am part of the Lowe’s Creative Blogger Team. One of our challenges this month was to do a project using the submerged color trend. When I think of submerged colors, the ocean and beautiful shades of blue and green come to mind.
Taking a little break from cherry red, I decided that navy would be the perfect color to make over my rusty, white patio furniture. Plus, navy would add a punch of color to my front porch while I patiently await warm weather in order to plant a flower or two.
After scrubbing my patio set, I applied three light coats of Valspar’s Oceanic Satin spray paint.
Within an hour I had a new-looking bistro set with a beautiful boost of color.
While I was at Lowe’s, I also picked up this amazing pot. I knew it would look perfect perched on my deep blue table. The succulents that I tucked in were leftover from another project. Cute, right? Although it’s still too chilly to leave the pot outside overnight, I don’t mind bringing it in and out everyday.
Anyway, isn’t spray paint the best? That’s one project I can cross off my spring to-do list! What fun ways have you been adding color to your outdoor spaces?
