Porch Progress



Several days ago I began the project to refresh the furniture on the screened porch. The bureau turned out very well. It's taking quite a lot of time to get the loose paint off the wicker, so that part is moving a bit slower.



Here's the end table after a second coat. The tray and stool will get their second coats shortly.

I love the color! They look great.

Thanks, Jean. I'm starting on the wicker today.
Best regards,

That green is perfect for a screen porch!

Dana W. Fisher said...

I agree, Mary. It's like new leaves or grass.
Kind regards,
Dana

Great green! (i think it's much nicer than the true avocado green from the 50s, which i remember as being sort of muddy, dull, and scary!)

Right you are, Cat. Our kitchen was turquoise, but I remember lots of my friends' kitchens as that muddy avocado. This has lots of nice light undertones.
Best,
Dana
