Paint It Black

I'm so excited to reveal this week's projects--both of them being transformations with black paint.

It all started when I found this outdoor stripe fabric at the local fabric wholesale house. It was such a deal, but didn't exactly look good on the outdoor wicker furniture.
When in doubt, paint it black!

Before, the set had neutral tan fabric, which after 5 years was looking a little tattered and tired.
The squirrels had even decided to bury their nuts in one of the cushions!

So, David, the upholsterer took the cushions to be recovered...

...While Bob, the Painter spray painted the furniture with good ole black Rustoleum!

This morning, the new cushions were delivered, and I am so pleased!
It's a brand new look! I love how the green stripe cushions look with the black wicker, even the old rust monogrammed pillows are ok.

David also slipcovered the chaise cushions, so it all works together.

I'm having a garden tea for 60 ladies in a few weeks. After years of neglecting my backyard, it is time to make a few improvements!

This afternoon, I sat outside enjoying the new furniture.

Dexter joined me and took up his favorite spot on the sofa...

...while Butter explored the new set-up!

Stay tuned tomorrow for part two of the "Paint It Black" reveal....
