Edie's Paint Party...

lifeingrace

One of my very first blog friends was Edie at Life in Grace. I doubt there are any of you that read this blog that don't already know who Edie is, since I have posted about her in the past. Anywho, she is hosting a party about painted patio furniture, and since I have posted all my painted stuff already, this will be a bit of a repeat. Sorry, but I have to show Edie some love and participate. Here are the painted projects I have done outside this spring/summer.

Front Porch Rockers:

Free Deck Chairs:
Lime Green Chair Planter:


Red Wicker Sofas:

Handi House:
This is one of the many projects my brother in law helped me with while he was here on the staycation. We cut lattice to put around the bottom, and he built me a little step. Walker and I stained them with deck stain, and I put one of the old birdhouses the old owners left there. I have to plant flowers and everything, but the hard part is done now.
Now this last one is a bit of a stretch, but it is what we have been working on since April, and I had to put something new in this post. It is the wall and counter off my back patio.
Before:
After:
We tiled the counter. Lonnie laid the pavers for me as a surprise, and yes I know how lucky I am! He is not a big fan of home improvement projects, and he has really worked hard on this one. The tools were Papa's from the farm. We are still laying more pavers, and I will post more about it all once it is finished, but this is a progress shot. Thank goodness Lon has some help. I would hate for him to work so hard by himself.
There you have it. My painted projects in a nutshell. Now head on over to Edie's for some real inspiration. She is way more brave in her color choices than I am. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Mandi,
You are amazing girl! I love all your projects but I'm especially jealous of the outdoor sink!!!! And I've loved the red wicker since the first day you posted it. Handi House is so cute too. I've thought about getting one of those and making it a potting shed with a cute little seating area----and a lamp or two!

I hope you are having a great summer and I'm so happy you linked with us. Make sure you let me know when you come back this way---I'd love to meet you!

Blessings,
edie

Hi Mandi.
I have to tell you that I think all of your projects are pretty great, but I have to concur with everyone else that the outdoor sink/serving area is my favorite. What a fantastic idea!
You, my friend have been a very busy girl with the paint. My index finger hurts for you. ;)
