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?

    Very nice decorative, eye piece but you need to go to Lowe’s and check out their soft, comfortable outdoor chairs. 🙂 Love your creative, inexpensive, decorating ideas and use of color!

      I know. I’ve been thinking about some new pieces, but I hate to replace some of these older ones. What to do!?

    gotta love the transforming powers of spray paint! I’m thinking my patio set needs to be blue this summer too!

    Loving the blue that you have painted these. The furniture set that you have has so much more character than the newer pieces. I say keep and enjoy. And the bowl is lovely.

    Love the blue! And your planter with sedum is the icing on the cake! Hope you get to enjoy a morning cup of coffee there soon.
