A Green Planter + A Turquoise Table + A Coral Chair

Before picture of my garage sale finds— a before shot of my garage sale finds that I shared on my instagram page last week —

This Summer I have been in complete survival mode. Simply surviving, making sure to create memories each day with the kids so they have the Best Summer Ever.  BUT as each night falls, this mama is just d-o-n-e. It’s been a blast, but it’s been tiring. And we still have 2+ more weeks till school starts…

Packed days have left little time for personal creating, but after a quick stop at a garage sale last week where I picked up some ‘trash treasures’, I found myself with a few spare minutes + 2 cans of spray paint.  And that makes this gal gitty with excitement!

First up, Green Citrus (by Rustoleum)…

Isn’t that such a vibrant, unexpected, fun color?! For $10 I made out well after stopping on a whim at a garage sale last Wednesday…

I picked up a wicker chair, a planter, and a table.  ALL need a bit of TLC, but I am confident that ALL will look great with a splash of color!

THE PLANTER.

The planter update is complete.  I chose to spray paint it a lime green hue called Green Citrus in a glossy finish…

A few coats later, it was complete.

Now it sits beautifully on the front porch and looks awesome with the green front door.

Definitely one of the best + EASIEST before and afters ever…

THE TABLE.

A splash of turquoise spray paint gave this falling-apart-table new life.  It’s still rusty but I find that beautiful.  The new color is complete, but there is still work to be done – it needs a top.  I’ve got some ideas, but still need to put it together…

THE CHAIR.

The chair hasn’t been touched, but I have a plan. CORAL is the COLOR that is going to make this chair shine again.  I first need to prime it, then I’m going to paint it.  I think I’m going to skip spray painting this one and instead try a hand sprayer.  I’ve had one sitting in the garage forever and I think this is just the project to try it on…  Wish me luck ;)

I’m looking for a wicker sibling to go along with this beauty.  Not a twin, but a something alike.  Have a wicker chair?  Share details.

I’ve got plans for these new green + turquoise + coral additions.

You’ll see them finished soon. AND all together.

Somewhere around the homestead.

Before I let you go, here is another great score from the weekend.  The fam & I were up & out early on Saturday at a ‘biggest yard sale’ event & I found these 2 headboards for the girls room (in a couple years).  Oh the potential!  Here is a picture I shared on my Instagram page

Headboard find!

    using a paint sprayer on the wicker will work fantastic. I just completed spraying a wicker side table and it was so easy. Have fun with your projects,
