back then they called this color “jade” …

several weeks ago I came upon an old can of spray paint in our shed…

I am not all that fond of smelly spray paints…

long forgotten this can was still begging to be used…

a weathered chair we have had for some time was a ready victim

then it seemed like a good idea to spray a couple of book pages using paper and crochet doilies as stencils…

still a little paint left in the can…

  2. Somehow I am not getting email updates of your blog…hmmmmm. So I checked my blog wall and there you were. hmmmmm

    Love the JAD color and the chair sure came out nice! Seems Mr Bunny liked it well enough, too! How cute is THAT?????

    When I painted the chair on the porch (Spanish Olive) I had a lot left, so now you’ve got me thinking about what other yard stuff I can paint!

    But at the moment, I’m becoming a redhead again and cleaning the house. I know how to have a good time, huh?

  6. I love that color! Good thing you found that can, perfect timing too because it’s the perfect color for summer. I’m wearing it right now on my nails 🙂 (’cause I’m in denial of winter).

    And is that a bunny?? how cute! I miss having a backyard, once we even had an owl guest in one of our trees : )

I love how that sweet little bunny posed for you too.They are so fun to watch. And, lest I forget to mention again, I so enjoy the quotes you choose at the end of your posts. Alan Cohen sure does come up with some really good ones.

  19. What a gorgeous old chair. It looks like it was sturdy, too. Aside from the cane seat, of course. Nicely done flower holder, though. Sometimes those smelly spray paints are the way to go, especially when it comes to painting furniture.
