A Sunny Yellow Bench For The Front Yard

10,441 Views
Look what a difference a few coats of sunny yellow paint made!
I’ll admit it was time consuming since the light colored paint required several coats, but it wasn’t difficult. I started with a few minor repairs and give it a light sanding.
Then it was time to pick a color. This is where I usually second guess myself and end up with something neutral and safe (like I did HERE). But not this time. I was determined to add a bright, cheery pop of fun to my all-too-serious-looking house.
I can’t even tell you how happy I am with this project. You know when something turns out even better than you expected? And then people stop along the road in front of your house to tell you how much they like it? This is that project.

    Love yellow - as long as it isn't screaming yellow. Like this. Like it a lot! Brightens up the whole area.

      @Marion Nesbitt Thank you Marion. I was super nervous about picking the right yellow. Some of them can be way too much.

    Yes! Me too! I always go for safe, neutral colors. I love this and I have a bench that might become yellow...or orange...or turquoise. Thanks!
