Getting Our Spray Paint On!

Lately our house project focus has moved outdoors. We have been busy cleaning up all the leaves and discovering plants that the previous owner planted. Spring is such a surprise at a new house; you just never know what might appear.  In addition I recently planted an herb garden and plan to plant a vegetable garden soon as well.  This past weekend, however, we took on a couple projects that just needed a little refresh job!

Unfortunately I forgot to take very good before pictures so you won't get the total transformation.  The first project was a new fire pit that our friends weren't using anymore and donated to the cause.  It was a bit rusty so we decided to give it a fresh coat of paint.

We also found a great patio table at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for much cheaper than we could have bought the same thing new.  It was however a forest green color and the chairs we have are all trimmed in black so we gave our cheap table a new look with a can of black spray paint.
The process:

The After:
Probably can't really tell in the picture but I promise
it looks brand new with the fresh coat of paint
Since we had the spray paint out and still had a lot left Nick decided to give this chair a new color as well.


 I really don't know where the chair came from and it didn't really look all that bad, but now it fits in nicely with our new chairs and "new" table.

Those are our outside updates so far.  Hopefully in the next couple weeks I will have some details about my garden and our other outside updates.
