Furniture paint job

During the (rainy) summer vacation this year, I decided to try to spice up out balcony, by painting the oh so neglected furniture.

I knew I wanted something nice and summery, and after some searching through the paint stores, I decided on three nice pastel colors.IMG_7785lavender, turquoise and aqua.

Then I waited for the rains to stop.
Before I got to the fun pat of painting I needed to clean the furniture. Using soap and sponge I scrubbed away years of dirt, tuning the water into a disgusting black hue.
The it was onto the paint. IMG_7778Table soon to become turquoise.

Once the weather cleared I even got some nice pictures in the sun. IMG_7821I’m so happy with this whole project. It went so fast and easy and the color combination makes me smile (even my boyfriend approves).

Hopefully We got some sunny weekend left this summer/fall for breakfast and reading on the balcony.IMG_7820

  1. Much improved! And what’s with ‘boyfriend’? Savour the opportunity to call him your fiancé, sounds both cooler and more romantic at the same time 😉

    1. He he, Old habits die hard (he also still goes under the name “sambo”)
      You’r absoluelty right about starting to call him my fiancé, if I only could find some nice word for it in swedish – “Fästman” just dosen’t have the same ring to it. 🙂
