It is my dad's fault that I never learned to paint. :-) He is a great painter and a perfectionist, so I just called him when I needed something painted. I would cook up a storm while he worked his magic.
But last year it was time for me to venture out on my own . . .
I was done with my old plastic
patio chairs being white.
So I spray painted them lime green . . .
all by my little old self.
Now that I have moved about 2,000 miles away, no more calling dad. Instead, I am calling on my cyber neighbor, Sarah at Modern Country Style, who lives 4,000 miles away.
Sarah is teaching a series on painting and has even offered to give advice on today's link. So Sarah, here is my piece that I want to paint.
I bought it in Seattle at a garage sale for $20. I love the shape, which I learned from you, is the first thing that matters. It is scratched and cracked in spots. I am thinking of maybe a celery green. What do you think, Sarah? Any advice?
In just a few weeks, our daughter, Christy is moving to Bicester, England and will be real neighbors with Sarah. They are already planning on meeting up. That makes this mom very happy indeed.
