Weekend stitching and painting

I had a productive weekend.  I continued working on Tiny Miniaturists chart of my LNS Stitcher's Place.

Dave & I also started an outdoor painting project.   We have 2 single chairs (adirondack) and a double with a table that are now very old and weathered.  We decided to brighten up our backyard with some paint instead of restaining them.  Here is a before and after for 1 of the single chairs.  We only did one to see how we would like it.  We LOVE the new look.  The other single will be painted orange next weekend if the weather is nice.  Still not sure what colour to do the double chairs.


  1. That looks really nice as will the Orange. What about a turquoise/aquamarine for the two-seater?

  2. Love it! There's a garden near us (Chanticleer) that has lots of painted adirondack chairs. Lime green is great but the leopard print might be my fav. Maybe outside the scope of what you are looking for? ;)

  3. The chair color is wonderful. Can't wait to see the orange. I think some shade of blue would be nice on your two double chair.


  4. Great progress on your stitching!
