I hope you had a rain-free holiday weekend, as a majority of ours felt like it was spent underwater! I don't recall ever having such a wash out of a 4th of July, which made for more naps than usual around here. But, it's all good. Instead of a cook out, we had a cook IN. You make due, right?
That said, I did finish another yard sale find (finally!). The jury is still out on it, but I can say it's definitely an improvement from where it began.
Here's a sneak peek...
But, before I give the full reveal, let's go back and see where we started. Ah, yes. There she is, next to her partner, the side table that now resides on our back porch.
My original plan was to paint this bench in two colors, but halfway through, I decided to make it three (because I enjoy making projects more difficult than necessary).
So, the white stripe was the late addition, but I think it makes it much more interesting than just the blue and green.
There was a whole lot of this going on in this process:
And skies that looked like this (but with the rain).
So, I made it work in the garage (and my son's baseball bag now reflects a hint of green):
It is residing in my office for the time being. Now that the office is going in a blue-green direction, it fits in for the moment. If things change, I can find another place in the house for it (or repaint it to fit in). In the meantime, the pink iron artwork may be getting a makeover in a fun shade of green so that it will tie together with the blue graphic chair.
So, what do you think? Yay or nay? How was your 4th? A wash out or fun in the sun?
