I can’t believe how fast summer is going. It seems like yesterday I worked on this corner of my porch, but it’s been over two weeks. I finally got the paint for the swing on other half. I found it in the “oops” section at Lowes.. It’s a pretty mint green. Here’s the swing that needs updating. I bought it a few years ago at a yard sale for $20.00. I never painted it but realize it’s time for a new look.
So, I cranked up some mood music to get me going and let the paint party begin. Two hours later and this is the new look:
Added a few extra items to cozy up the space and here it is completed;
The chain and iron arms were spray painted silver metallic. The little marble top table (belonged to my belated grandmother) use to look like this but was updated with a quick white spray paint. It use to have a glass top but I broke it..(uggghhh) luckily I kept this marble piece that was on another table that has been disgarded.. (the hoarder in me) – so I married the two and they look pretty good together. The blue bottle (Italian made glass) was a Goodwill find for $2.75.
It’s a perfect place to kick your sneakers off and gently swing while reading a magazine
The wicker stool was picked up at a yard sale while I was in Jersey last week for $3.00
The vintage macrame plant holder was a thrift store find for $2.00. I’ve been contemplating to have the caribbean art framed.. I decided I will once I find the right frame for the right price.
The only thing left is to find the perfect light fixture to complete the look.. I’m still hunting and will be happy when I find it. But in the meantime, I’ll just swing along in another cozy (thrifted) space.
