I picked out some bright fun colors (Spa Green and Red Flambe) at the store to paint my raised beds and bench. Before the backyard seemed dull and the colors really made a difference. An added bonus was that I found some pillows on sale for $2.50 that matched my tan patio set too!
The best find was this bakers rack off of Craigs list. It cost $30 and I just added paint to help it stand out. I started by painting it by hand and realized it took much too long to get good coverage. I turned to spray paint and was much happier with the results. The rack will come in handy for potting flowers or entertaining.
Here’s some painted bird houses that add interest to our fence.
