When it was suggested that I try black for the patio furniture, I was intrigued. I like black with brights. Heck, this is my Florida room.
Excuse the mess. With two bedrooms closed for construction, one of the boys is sleeping in here.
We had family over for dinner a couple of weeks ago (yeah, I'm even entertaining in all this), and since my extra dining room chairs were in storage, we hauled my wicker loveseat in to accommodate.
The problem is, Savannah really loved it there for curling up and doing homework.
We have to take the patio apart to repair an outter wall and install new windows, so I figured, why not, one less thing to move, right? It just looked out of place with my black dining room chairs.
Black, you say?
We have our guinea pig!
First, plastic primer on the underside. I gave that 20 minutes.
Then I flipped it over and primed the top.
I allowed it to dry for one hour. Once I had passed the inspection of the Feline Overlords (this is Wells, by the way), we went onto the fun stuff!
Three light coats here...
... and here. Walk around your piece several times. Make sure you have full coverage.
And here we are!
Okay, yeah, I love it.
I slid it back into place to await daughter's approval. There was a slightly delighted squeal involved as my little chipper goth settled in and flipped open her laptop.
So, are we still going with black? What's your vote?
This was a can of primer and two cans of paint, people. $9.
