Today the weather was a rain, sun and then more rain.
But even so I managed to paint some more garden furniture.
This year I am going all white.

But don't panic!     There will be floral cushions.

This was the before picture of my two old wooden chairs
beginning to turn into a bench.

And this what it looks like now all painted.

A extra seat for the garden.

And I finally finished painting all my chairs.

And because I was in the mood for painting.
The rabbits hutch got the white treatment as well.

And the last piece that got painted was my round table.

If the weather stays o.k. this weekend. I should have all my outside furniture painted
all ready for the summer and those floral cushions.
And lots of afternoon tea in the sun.

What have you done today.
Would love to hear.
Have you any DIY planned for the weekend.


  1. Looking fabulous and very smart. My day has been a day of rest after my trip that I blogged about yesterday so that I can go out tomorrow. I steer clear of DIY not because I cant do it but because I lose patience and never finish things.

  2. These pieces of furniture are now absolutely beautiful!! Love to paint furniture but I've never been so lucky to find anything so great. Love this! And thanks for stopping by...I'm now following you and hope to get to know you better! :)


  3. I have always up cycled furniture for years. It's fun to see something old turned into something beautiful with only a bit of paint. But I don't blame you for not doing it. As it does take time and I have to be in the mood to do it.

  4. Jane thank you for following me. I hope you enjoy my posts. Raining here today. So painting walls inside instead today. I feel the need to achieve things with the little time I have. MAD !

  5. They are looking great, I do hope the weather holds off for you & am looking forward to seeing your cushions.

  6. I love your little white bench - how clever to create one from chairs. All of your white is lovely against the stone.

    I love the gravel as a floor for the garden. Your home looks quite European to me and now that I have written my comment, I will read more about you to see if I am correct.

  7. Great job, it looks very classy

  8. Everything looks so inviting! Isn't it amazing what paint can do? Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. :)

  9. Amazing! Love your beautiful farmhouse too!
