The Power of Paint

There have been so many project going on around here lately! Sewing, gardening, painting, crafting..... Since it finally feels like summer, it seems like everyone has burst in activity. I love Saturday's and tend to cram so much in that I am wore out by Sunday! This Saturday was no exception. 
The list included:
 ~ Wash and paint the wicker furniture I bought Friday.
First coat done! isn't it looking good?
~ Paint the decks chairs I recently acquired.
~ Paint the back steps to the basement.
(This has been on my list for a very long time. I tried to paint last winter, but because of the extreme cold the back stairs weren't even 50 degrees!)
So excited with how it turned out! Now we just need to paint the walls, trim and door. 
Just in case anyone needs to know this is Sherwin William's "Powder Blue". It is the same color as the porch floor and you may have noticed I am also painting the deck chairs with it.

Those are just a few project I have been working on lately, can't wait to share the details with you soon. It always amazes me what a good coat of paint can do!


  1. You whirlwind of ambition, you! Those look great. Love the steps painted. The chairs look a tad uncomfortable still. ;-) And the white on the wicker is beautiful! What a find that would be!

  2. Great job on these projects! I love wicker...anything :)

  3. I agree...paint is amazing.
    It looks great. :-)

  4. Wow. . .You've been busy, girl! I'm catching up on your posts. Have enjoyed every minute. I'm always inspired when I come here. Wonderful wicker, by the way.

  5. So true about the paint! I love the wicker set and your stairs are gorgeous. It so reminds me of the clean look of the farmhouses I remember when I was young and that grayish blue color was always ont eh steps and the porches. Yours is especially pretty. So crisp and clean looking. You go girl!
