Just Add Paint!


What happens when you take three vintage items ...



And add these ...



The porch takes on a new fresh look ...



Of course I still have to figure out how to repair the
wicker scrolls that the squirrels chewed!

And ...


A vintage chair gets a makeover too with enough
paint leftover ...



To give a new look to a mini chair too!

Lots of fun parties to join today
and

Bentley ~ let's put on our paint masks and find something
else to paint!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Very nice. Love it. Now all you need is some soft pink flowers blooming for spring! hahaha...it is snowing here and nothing is even thinking of blooming~!

  11. Amazing what a trasformation paint can make. Each of your pieces are wonderful, but my favorite is the old cane chair. At least if you can't find a way to fix the wicker, everyone will know that's an old design, so it's more expected the wicker wouldn't be perfect. I wouldn't worry so much about fixing it because it's still pretty.

  19. Hi Susan, thanks for helping me answer a question ive been thinking about since i bought an old vintage laundry basket last week. Some people would cringe at the thought of painting it, but i love the white so much better. Its so funny how some of these posts are so on time, lol. I will for sure post it when i get it done. Ur things turned out beautiful. I wouldnt worry about fixing the wicker, the broken strands add character..........Bonnie
