First these chairs were brown just like the deck. Now they wear a lovely coat of tomato red spray paint.
The little metal table between them went from brown to black with spray paint, too. Much better.
By the way these chairs rock, too.
Now let's add some colorful outdoor cushions. The seat cushions I bought last year from Pottery Barn during their clearance sale for 50% off. Hooray! The lantern was spray painted olive green.
The striped pillow I just bought on clearance, too from Pottery Barn. Yay, for sales!
Now let's add an outdoor rug from Overstock.com
I like the way the stripes in the rug repeat the stripes in the pillows.
Now if I need extra seating I can just pull this wicker chair out of the sunroom. I spray painted it red a couple of years ago.
If we need more seating I have plenty more chairs to grab and bring out.
Now we have a nice sitting area to enjoy.
Two lanterns that hold votive candles are hanging on the rail for added light at night.
Plus if we have a fire going that is added light.
Close up of the little lanterns that are hanging now.
Another spray painted item is the rooster. It was a brown metal.
This is what I can do to cover up the little grill. Bring out my shutters from the sunroom.
Then I added these colorful little votives that I found on sale for $1.25 at Michael's.
I can pull this chair over here for another little sitting area.
Love the new look from inside.
So much nicer.
I placed this planter here to hide the view of the grill since you can see all the way through to the deck when you enter our front door. Nobody wants to see the grill when they first come in.
Well, that is how I prettied up the deck. Looks so much nicer with the pops of color added. Now if
it will just cool off some so we can enjoy it. It is extremely hot and humid today.
Come on over and I will fix you a nice cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade.
Y'all come back now,
