I haven't had a lot of time to devote to blogging lately. Crazy things are happening in my life (I'll post about that soon since you're probably on the edge of your seat!) so I haven't been able to post or even more importantly, visit all of my favorite blogs out there! Sitting down at my computer for a while to visit blog-land is...glorious! The problem that I have is that one blog leads to another and well, you know...
Since I haven't done anything spectacular just recently, I thought that I'd at least share with you how much better my wicker chairs look since I finally got around to giving them a coat of fresh paint! I have 2 wicker chairs on my front porch that I walk past every day, several times a day. They were bugging me with their sun faded ugliness. Since I have such a fascination for the color black, it was a given that it would be the color I would choose.
It took quite a few coats to cover them and sometimes when I walk by them, I still see a place that I missed. That can of black spray paint is usually within arms reach so that I can give it a quick touch up. I also gave my cushions a "bath" to freshen them up also. While I had my paint out, I decided to give the plant stands a little boost as well. No before picture. I couldn't wait long enough to get one, but just take my word for it, they look WAY better now too!
If your super busy like I am right now, consider just giving something a boost of color to make it feel refreshed and new. It's a quick and simple way to at least help you feel as though you're getting more accomplished! It makes the craziness in life seem a little bit more bearable!
