True Blue {Flea Market Find}

She had me at “hello.”

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her.  And where I wanted her to go.  I even envisioned a vibrant color.


And I had an inspiration photo (thank you, Pinterest!).

And that is how this $2 girl went from this…

Are you ready?

Are you sure you’re ready?

Are you really, really ready???

For this…

I am totally in love with this girl!

I’m envisioning a galvanized tub full of geraniums in this mix, too.

Because my porch just begs for that touch, too.

She just brings a whole lotta happy to my front porch…

Don’t you agree?

Sharing her loveliness…

  11. I have a similar chair that I picked up for three bucks but I haven’t done anything to it because I keep waiting for inspiration to paint it some funky design, etc. I would have never thought of something so subtle as a single color. It looks awesome! Bringing mine up from the basement today!! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  13. Oh, I agree Heidi! That is one truly happy blue porch gracing your porch!

    Thanks for sharing at our Crazy for Color link party!
