Met Monday

Met Monday

Hi everyone.  I hope your Monday is going great.  This is my first time participating with Met Monday!  I’m excited!  Please visit the lovely Susan at "Between Naps On the Porch"

During one of our trips to Houston when my oldest son was interviewing at the different medical schools this past summer, we stopped at a Garden Ridge.  I immediately saw this set!  It was in black and I had been looking for a white set.  We bought them anyway and decided we would paint them white.   This is such a beautiful set with the roses and all! 

This is a before picture.

Here is a close up of the chair.  Look at the detail!!IMG_4623

This past Sunday hubby decided to finally paint them! woohoo!!!!!  Here they are getting their first coat of white paint.IMG_4629

This is what hubby used to paint the table and chairs.  It is very fast and easy to use. Here is the link to this particular paint gun.  It wasn’t expensive at all.  $59.99.   http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=90977 IMG_4633

And here is the set in it’s beautiful white color!! IMG_4634

Now I have a place to have either tea or coffee!  One for you and one for me! :)  IMG_4635

The bench got a makeover too.  It used to be black.  I love it in white!  I need to make pillows and cushion for it. :)IMG_4642 

My fallish decor got moved to the other end of my porch.   :) 

Make sure to visit Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

Have a wonderful day. :)

Sandra it looks great! Where did he find that paint gun and what make is it? I've been thinking of painting some things, and if they are that good, I might want to invest in one. Love how your furniture turned out.

Thanks and Happy Met Monday...

I just so love that set! I looked all summer for one like it on Craigs list and I did find one but it was a bit too far to go. Hubby did a great job painting, it looks so much prettier in white! Cindy
