I decided that this would not only be a busy cleaning week it would also be a good time to get out my fall decorations. I wanted something different on my porch by the front door. I thought I should have something a bit more seasonal greeting the guests than the garbage cans.
I found this chair at a garage sale over the summer but I wasn't sure just what I wanted to do with it.
It was only $5.
It had a broken leg so I didn't trust it enough to sit in.
The seat was dirty, it had a green paint stain, and was falling apart just a bit.
And, there were quite a few places where the paint was peeling (like under the price tag).
But all in all, it's not a bad looking chair.
I washed it up a bit and applied some Elmers Wood Glue on the broken leg.
After the glue dried, I got out cans of Valspar Spray Paint.
I used Satin Dried Peppers and Satin Truffle Hunt.
Valspar has some of the best colors available but I have a really hard time with their spray cans. Maybe it's just me (I have some arthritis and carpal tunnel issues) but there is just something about the design that makes their cans difficult for me to use.
These colors look great together and made this chair look so much better.
Add some mums, pumpkins, and local wildflowers (aka weeds).
And you have a wonderful fall arrangement for the front porch.
I thought it turned out pretty nice for only about $15 (including the cost of the mums and pumpkins).
Don't you just love these colors?
Fall is my favorite season because of the colors.
