Bright ideas!

And I literally mean bright! My lawn chairs are getting old and in need of maintenance. I decided that I was finally going to paint them instead of stain them this time. I had forgotten what a pain in the rear it is to work with all those slats!

But I knew I wanted something bright, and I was thinking like maybe a nice turquoise. Frankly, I blame–or is it credit?– my color choice on Melody Johnson. I read her blog, love her work and love her bright colors. I ended up with a lime green so bright that even my grandson said you need to put your sunglasses on when you look at it! He wanted red.

It takes a bit longer than I remembered from the last time I stained it. I’ve got two coats on all the ‘bottom’ stuff and this afternoon I should be able to get started on the ‘top’–the stuff that shows.

So this is my creative life for the next couple of days.

It’s such a happy color. I really do love it!!!
