Everything about todays project excites me. The colors, the burst of summer, the vibrancy of each image, the way the sun was blistering the day I was out painting (blistering isn’t a term we use here in May). Summer was my inspiration for this painted furniture, if you’re not quite there yet, stick around this fun furniture is sure to bring you around!
Today’s post is the third week of the Outdoor Extravaganza, the first week’s theme was plants and flowers where I shared the Easy to Build Patio Planter , week two I shared some tips for hosting a last minute BBQ, and the theme for week three is Painting and DIY.

You might be surprised to learn that most of this furniture was plucked from the trash! A fresh coat of beautiful paint can go a long way to breathe life back into what was thought to be garbage.
All of these pieces had a little something wrong with them, but nothing with the construction. A new drawer front (also via the garbage) drawer pulls, and a touch of filler and these ladies were ready for the ball!
This collection of fresh summer colors makes my heart pitter patter, you can’t tell me it doesn’t make you smile!

I painted all the pieces using PPG Pittsburgh Paints Manor Hall Exterior Paint and Primer in One. A quick pre sand, and two coats of Manor Hall and this painted furniture was brand new.
I can’ t wait to sit out at this little table picnicking with the children.
I’ve never like dandelions as much as I do when I see a field or orchard full of them! The only thing that could have made me happier is if the apple blossoms had bloomed, I’m about a week too early.
I’m can’t wait to hear what you think of this color combination, I’m a bit obsessed with it.
Disclosure: The paint for this project was provided by PPG Voice of Color. All ideas, projects and opinions are my own.

Love the fresh summery colours! That shot of the chairs in the field is amazing with those dandelions in the background. So glad to see you’ve been rescuing stuff from the trash too!

Oh my goodness!! I am in love!! What a colour pallette. And that setting. Couldn’t be more gorgeous, Virginia!!
Thanks Krista, Makes me so happy!
Love the row of chairs and colours! Believe it or not, they’re the EXACT colours of my mother’s bridesmaids dresses from 50 years ago.
Isn’t that crazy how things come back around! I bet it was a sweet wedding, love that old time vintage flare!

I love the makeovers. My favorite is the two-toned desk. Love it, love it, love it. You have inspired me to hit the flea markets this summer in search of a few treasures. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best.
Good luck Rhonda, yard sale-ing has to be my favourite part of summer. Glad I could help light the fire!
