Edited to add: I recently did a link party for patio furniture and I thought it’d be fun to add it to Kelly’s party too. Hope you enjoy the links. Thanks for visiting!
Welcome to my 2nd Linky Party which I shall call ‘Painted Patio Furniture: Blue and Improved’. This patio set that I rehab-ed today is almost 15 years old and has been painted 4 times. Today the color of choice: aqua. I seem to be obsessed with blue lately as you can tell from this post. I am also excited to be joining ‘Metamorphosis Monday’ hosted by Susan from Between Naps on the Porch—a new blog to me! Make sure and visit her site too.

My trusty side-kick Nicholas aka Nick aka JohnnytheNightStalker then began using the ‘dropcloths’ from our project to create this suburban cul-de-sac art creation. He requested us to sit in as ‘props’. And I’m a little bit scared to inform you that he’s starting a blog. Consider yourself warned.
Now it’s your turn. Please, pretty please, show us your patio. If it’s fantastic, show us and we’ll oooooo and ahhhhhh and if it needs work, show us and we’ll tell you where we bought our blue spray paint. K?
