Wow...Summertime for our family has been crazy busy this year! Between kid two's Swim Team, Kid one's Baseball, getting together with friends, and just hanging out by the pool...my Diy to-do list is slow moving!
So I thought I'd share some past projects inspired by the warm weather here in Charlotte and our love of...getting outside! Yup, revamping things around here doesn't just happen inside the house.
Some of my favorite projects involve revamping things for our outdoor spaces.
Here's one of my favorite seats in the house...our porch swing! When we bought our house 4 years ago, this swing was white and not workin' for me! I painted her black to better go with the orange and green colors on our screened in porch and deck.
Here are my Pottery Barn Inspired Candle Votives. I bought these beauties from one of my favorite discount stores and the wire hangers were white. To warm em' up, I sprayed em' with my favorite Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray paint!
Now if you look closely the bronze paint is starting to chip off. That's okay, in my opinion a little chippy paint adds age and character!
We bought these Adirondack chairs several years ago from World Market. They were a dark wood finish, but within a year or two became gray and faded from the sun and elements...ugh!
I spray painted them a vibrant red, added some great pillows (bought on clearance of course)...and I love them more now than I ever did before!
And of course every great outdoor space needs some beautiful potted plants! This year is our first year using ferns to flank two of our entryways.
If you've got shaded entryways and need pretty and low maintenance plants...then simple ferns are for you!
So there you go guys...a few decorating and Diy projects that make Summertime around here more stylish and fun! I'm sharing this fun Summertime post with...
