Spray paint equals a makeover....

Remember the kissing chair (or courting chair) that I found along the curb that someone set out for the trash? I finally got around to painting it.

I know.....a lot of you are probably thinking, why paint it, it's perfect.




Well, for me, and for Mourning Dove Cottage, I saw it in my mind ~ dark chocolate brown.


And with a little spray paint, it was transformed into a rich brown color!


I have it placed in the garden right now near the sitting area with the table and chairs.


It's a very versatile piece ~ I know I'll be moving it around to different areas of the garden wherever I need extra seating.


Oh, I'm lovin my new kissing chair!
