A new coat of paint can do wonders for old stuff. Our outdoor furniture was way beyond shabby chic. Nearly 20 years of Texas sun and wind had almost stripped it of any orginal finish. It was clear something needed to be done if we were going to be able to keep using it for outdoor dining and sitting. Several cans of spray paint gave it renewed approval from everyone. In the process, I wore a good deal of the paint myself! On one trip to get more paint, I remembered on the way in that I had forgotten to write the name of the paint down. By this time all I could remember was the paint I had used on the porch swing a week earlier. The mission was accomplished when I proudly held up my arm and pointed to the splotch of green there. Spruce Green, that was it! Sometimes being messy is not a bad thing.
