The outdoor furniture upcycle was on the 'to do' list for a long time...
And finally it happened!
It is Autumn now, but the little side patio was looking oh so sad.
Plus this wee spot is a perfect coffee hideaway even in winter.
(Coastal lifestyle means no snow here!)
Then washed and left to dry.
The paint I used is called 'Rust-oleum'.
A paint and primer in one easy to use sprayer.
This paint is available in New Zealand at Bunnings.
The colour I used is called 'Robins Egg' in matt.
I'm loving this can design in spray paint.
Trigger mechanism that's easy to use.
(It took one and a half cans to cover the table and two chairs, so that means extra is available for patch ups in the Spring).
and potted some vibrant shocking pink cyclamen.
What I'd like to make are some round cushions for on the chair seats - that's next on the list!
In a white bucket on the step...
shocking pink cosmos.
And sweet pink snapdragons.
I am totally crushing on the Robin Egg colour!!!
In the larger pots stock, impatiens, cosmos and snapdragons were planted.
What a amazing transformation of a table set I had all but given up on...
I love you spray paint!And the addition of cream and white pots of pink and white flowers just adds to a relaxing beautiful space.
I'm hoping the cosmos has time to seed down before winter arrives.
And the rain overnight left sweet water droplets on my newly planted flowers.
A reminder to stop and enjoy the little things...
