A while back I got a call from a friend saying there was a double rocker on her neighbor’s curb. She wondered if I wanted it. The answer is always yes.
I love that she thought of me 🙂
The rocker did need some work. The entire seat was rotted out. I forgot to take a picture before my handy husband re-seated it for me.
You can see the paint was dull and moldy. Not to inviting for porch sittin’, tea drinkin’ and story swapin’. We shorten our words a lot in the South.
Then, this summer I won a jar of Front Porch Paint while at the Haven Conference. I could pick any color from a mind boggling array of choices. It was all my brain could do to NOT pick another shade of gray, or cream or blah blah basic. It almost pained me, but the brave little voice inside said pick a bold color.
So I picked a deep, rich, bold plum color called Playful…
I have NEVER been a purple person. At the time I wasn’t sure what I would use it for, but I knew I was already pining for Fall. It was over 100° outside after all.
I figured if this paint was good for a no fade door it was good for a no fade rocker.
Once it was all freshened up I put it in the little patio off our master bedroom. It makes me smile every time I pass by. Bold colors aren’t for everyone and they aren’t for every space. Outside is a great place to experiment with a color palette that wouldn’t normally work in your home. You have a bit more freedom to change it up.
The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1
