It's A Party!



I wanted to join in the fun at Debbie's paint party so I ran around and took a few new photos and looked for a few oldies to share.

I have a favorite spray paint from Lowe's ~ it's Valspar Pistachio.  Bob has looked for it twice this year and says they don't make it anymore.  I don't think he asked, so after vacation I will have to make a trip in there to find out for myself.  

I was going to refresh everything outside that has this color, but for now you will have to settle for some old pictures and a little faded paint.

This is a chandelier that hangs in front of the playhouse.  Looks so sweet at night ~ 

 

 Here it is over a little patio set that I bought at Hobby Lobby and painted green.  Perfect for tea parties.





This little picnic table was red ~ not any more!



I have this old faded tea cart, and gave it new life with black spray paint.  I used glossy, hopefully it will be able to withstand some moisture.



It now lives by the pool with laundry baskets of pool toys.



And for my last project, I bought this cute little planter and was actually going to put a plant in it, but it is doing a great job as a sunglass holder!



Please join Debbie and visit lots of other fun summer projects!

I am linking to Terri at A Creative Princess for her party.

Adorable Sue. I have seen that color many times and never bought it..I will have to try it sometimes. So happy you joined the party.

Lots of cute projects, Sue! Love the little table and chairs set and your cart looks great black. I need a sunglass holder! Great idea!

This is the second good tip on a paint color that I've seen this morning. I like the pistaccio. Can you get it matched even if they don't have it anymore? Paint just jazzes things up easily and beautifully. I'm working on a few projects myself, Too bad I chose instead to post about menopause... good grief, Debbie.

Gosh, everything looks SO pretty! I bought a similar Laura Ashley paint color & STILL haven't used it. *blush*
I love all the items you spruced up so beautifully. Nice, fresh, hip young colors.

The best shot though is of the grandkidlets at their tea party. What special memories you're making for them!

Hugs,
Rett
