Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

If this is your first time over here, Welcome to the new Year of Serendipity!!!!  I'm still tweaking a few things here and there (including updating my rather sad home tour and pathetic 30 before 30), but I'd love to hear what you think! In the midst of launching this site and ironing out kinks with my web designers, I've gone spray-happy again.  I can't help myself!  Spray paint is such a fantastic way to make an instant transformation.

As I mentioned last week, I have target lock on my front porch.  My itsy bitsy never used front porch.  So far, I've purchased paint to refresh the trim and started looking at solid stains for the floor, but I may have started a little backwards... I started with the furniture.

I found 2 perfectly scaled chairs on Craigslist and a small side table at the thrift store which all called for a few coats of spray paint.  So far I've tackled the side table.

It went from this:

Thrifted Table Before

to this in about a half an hour:

Canary Yellow Thrifted Table

Talk about instant gratification!  I'm not too worried about having a wooden side table on the porch since it won't be exposed to too much of the elements, but that's also why I went for an inexpensive thrifted piece (with some sexy legs, no?).

I was very tempted to run outside at 8am this morning and try to get the chairs painted, so I could include them in this post, but I probably want to do them right and not just fast.  probably.  because they're going to be fan.tas.tic.  With the glorious weekend forecast (rain rain rain), it looks like I'll be impatiently waiting until Monday/Tuesday to do the chairs.

I hope your holiday weekend forecast is better than ours and you can enjoy some sunshine!  I'll just enjoy my sunshine colored table instead as I watch the rain.

Do you have any awesome holiday weekend plans or projects?  and what do you think of the new site??
