Wanna Peek?

Giving this old iron lawn table and chairs a new life...

Spray paint... what a wonderful invention... the color...

Green Apple by Rust-Oleum Painters Touch... It's the perfect summer green for this old vintage find...

A little hard to show you the color clearly on this bright sunny Texas afternoon...
The chairs were rusty white and the table... a coral pink... haven't painted the table yet... can you guess what complementary color the table will be? I hope to get the table painted Tuesday... a soft Sweet-Pea Pink... and give the chairs another coat of Apple Green..
and if you're wondering... yes... this pretty little set will be going into my new booth location... maybe this week (if I can get the seats recovered in time!). I picked a pretty Lilly Pulitzer fabric to cover them in...
Just painting to my hearts contentment... down here in French Lique!
I'm joining Diane for 2nd Time Around Tuesday... so hop on over and see who else is joining in...

I can't wait to come and check out your booth in person! When I do, will you meet me there and give me a tour? I'll return the favor if you're ever down my way! :-)

Looks great, I love iron lawn furniture!

Oh Dixie - nothing makes my heart beat faster than old wrought iron anything. That is just gorgeous...how can you let it go? That's the one thing you'll probably never see in my store - can't bear to part with it!
Oh my gosh...I'm so thrilled about you and Candy going to Paper Cowgirl. We are going to have such fun! :)Nancy

I think I need intervention!!!
Sitting out on the deck in the sunshine with family from Oregon and New Jersey SIL, BIL, niece & her daughter. Life is good.
Looking forward to seeing the finished product...are they for your porch?
Later...

Love those colors...so "springy"! The table and chairs have the cutest shape to them, too

Jodie LeJeune said...

Dixie girl...I think you can just about transform ANYTHING! I've just spent almost an hour reading up on all of your 're-do's'. When you can't seem to find anything else there in Texas to fix...come on down across the state line to Louisiana, I have a list of things I could use help with ;)
We have Chili's down here too...I'd love to treat you to a Presidente'...my treat!!!!!
everything vintage
