It's a Painted Patio Furniture Party!

Edie at LifeInGrace is hosting a Painted Patio Furniture party!

I have a patio chair that I picked up at a yard sale many, many years ago. At the time I painted it cream to match my porch railings & trim on my old house. Since we moved in early 2008 the chair has been shoved in the corner of the garage covered in cobwebs, garden hoses, & rags. This weekend I pulled it out of hiding and gave it a little makeover.

You can see the cream colored paint is flaking off of it, and it is absolutely filthy!!

I began by priming it. Starting on the underside it looks like I didn't completely paint it the first time - I turned it over and "ooops", the original redwood was still there.

Drying after first coat of my chosen paint:

Drying in my workspace (garage):

I fell in love with this pillow at Home Depot. It is a indoor/outdoor pillow, and it is of course my
favorite color red. My daughter & I chose a paint color for the chair that would match the pillow. We came up with Glidden's "GLY11 Fresh Pineapple".

And here is my Painted Patio Furniture - lets PARTY!! I just love it, and it is so bright and cheery in my backyard:
