So yesterday I shared the new-to-us patio set I rescued from the trash. It’s in good stable condition but very visibly needs some paint and a bit of sanding. First let me tell you the story:
I had to make an emergency trip to the library, remember the leaf I mentioned being pressed in a library book? Well I accidentally turned the book back in which led to a meltdown like only a two year old can throw. So I promised to go as soon as Daddy came home and rescue it. On my way home I saw just a single lawn chair a few streets over, I passed it by, but one street before my house turned around and went to check it out. The lady happened to be out and I asked if it was headed for the trash. Then it happened like this:
“Yeah, did you want it?”
“We have the whole set, do you want it all???” (insert very strange look here at the concept of grabbing trash)
And I proceeded to make the back and forth trips necessary to cram an entire patio set into our car. Thank goodness we drive a boxy scion, otherwise it could have easily been 4 trips.
Well now the dilemma comes in of what color to paint it! I’m thinking a bright leafy green, or a cool turquoise blue. Maybe a funky red? Oh there is just so many colors in the world! Maybe orange!?
Maybe I should go find fabric for cushions then buy paint to match?
What color would YOU paint it? Leave a Smart Remark below and give me your input. And just maybe there is a prize in it for you. Just maybe. *wink wink*
