Swing Along

Jamala W
by Jamala W
I got this swing a few years ago for $20.00. I never painted it, but it was due for an update. I chose a color from Lowe's "oops" paint section.
The color is a mint green which added a softer palette for the previously dark wood.
Added a few more items to cozy up the space
Spray painted the wrought iron and chains silver metallic
The blue vase (Italian glass) was a Goodwill Find for $2.75
The vintage macrame plant holder was $2.00
The wicker stool was a $3.00 yard sale find. The power of paint helped give this porch a refreshing new look

    Nice job and better yet the price for the swing! What a lovely area you have created for your porch! I think I will have to make sure my next house when we move south has a huge porch so I can go flea marketing and find some great finds! Great job!!
