Paint makes pretty much everything better.
Once upon time, this little make-shift table was built & secured to one of our backyard trees. The previous owners also had a hammock right next to it; we really need to get one too as the secures are still there...soon! But, said little tree side-table was looking sad. We use our deck a lot & this little table is in our sight line, so it needed some love.
Here's the before:
After a good brush down & a quick scan of our basement for leftover paint (read: free), I went to work.
More love to our previous owners: they left & labeled all the paint colors they used throughout the house - how nice is that!?!
It's an interior paint, but for this gig, perfection is not the end goal.
Pretty = the end goal.
I also added a little stencil:
From this cute book I picked up at an Urban Outfitters clearance rack years ago:
You can also find it Here (yes, you know I love my Amazon affiliate links; thanks, as always, for the support).
I then spray painted the whole thing down with clear sealer.
And for some greenage, I scoured the front yard (also read: free) - we have lots of hearty Lamb's Ear:
When it blooms, it looks like this:
Overall, it made me feel like this:
Later, I checked on the plants & found out squirrels must like paint (because #nature) - still love it though:
And, that's a wrap!
