Outdoor Furniture Update

Remember this gem

Outdoor - Before

Well now it looks like this…



I decided to go with charcoal gray paint and cobalt blue cushions.  We used paint and primer outdoor paint by Behr from Home Depot and had them custom mix the paint.  At first the shade was too dark and then too much green and finally achieved the hue I was going after.  The poor girl that was mixing the paint was probably highly frustrated with me but outdoor paint is tricky because you have to consider sun, shade and all different sorts.

I still need to add some decorative pillows to the mix – I am thinking about a tangerine or orange colors.

Just imagine Dax as a pillow…

Highly considering two of these beauties…from Etsy.  That way I can get my Trina Turk fabric that I dearly love.

Or for half of the cost – I could go for two of these

Oh and I almost forgot to mention – I got a outdoor coffee table.  Where you ask?  Well, on Craigslist of course.

This Smith and Hawken coffee table I have seen places retail for $200 plus and we snagged this one for $60!  I just need the mister to paint it the same charcoal gray color.

Still some work to do but I am really enjoying the progress.  Best yet, now we don’t have to sit on the concrete patio!
