Summer is just around the corner! While we are still experiencing a chilly spring, you can just smell it! The forsythia bushes are starting to bloom and the tulips are reaching for the sky! The robins and cardinals are outside singing at the crack of dawn. Even if our own backyards aren’t quite ready to go, you just have to look through a few decorating magazines to be inspired. We have already had customers drop off outdoor pieces of furniture. Our custom black is always popular, white and of course Caliente, AF290. The Caliente is choice of colour for those great antique metal chairs. Check out the “Gallery” tab to be inspired by the outdoor furniture makeovers of summer ’09 & ’10. Adirondack chairs are also popular to have sprayed, wether they are old antique ones from the family cottage or brand new kits from the big box stores. They just have to be assembled before they are brought in!!!Choosing a new colour for old furniture is as exciting as choosing what colours to feature in your planters. Benjamin Moore has an incredible selection of colours to choose from. Although the blacks and whites are a great backdrop for bright coloured accessories, you might want to think the reverse and be completely on trend. Same as the fashion trends, furniture is experiencing an exciting injection of colour again. Just picture yourself sipping a lime margarita on your deck in your freshly sprayed chairs…..maybe in a bright yellow or blue, even purple…..you get the idea. Start looking for some of your own inspiration, then make your plans early so you can enjoy every minute of it!! Cheers!
