Over the Easter weekend I got an idea. I decided to brighten up this rustic, semi-delapidated arbor in my backyard.
I should have taken a pic before we cleared our all the overgrown plants on either side, but I wasn't thinking.
I am on an aqua/turquoise kick, so I went to Home Depot and purchased a Behr exterior paint and primer combo in a satin finish. The paint color is Gem Turquoise, and if you want to make a statement this is the paint for you. It's bright, but when my Tween told me the color said "happy" to her, I knew that it was the right choice. That was the exact emotion I was going for.
Now, like I said on my PYL Facebook page a couple of days ago, I am one of those persons that always starts a painting project thinking that it will be fun but then soon remembers that it's not. And anything requiring two coats or more...well I might cry. But, anyway I began:
I did literally have a mental "Karate Kid" moment or two when I told myself, "Paint the fence. Paint the fence". Oh Mr. Miyagi, I'm afraid you would have shook your head and corrected my technique. But I finished!
Now to decide on what kind of flowers to plant on both sides of the arbor???? Comment with your suggestions. I would love gardening advice!
Thanks for stopping by!
