This is a trend I'm seeing in many different ways. The table here was created by and displayed at HeronKate's Art blog.
Remember the old metal lawn chairs from the 30s to 50s? They're back in vogue. Sand them, prime them, paint them. Preferably in vivid colors. (It's also been recommended to take them to a body shop for painting.) Adirondack chairs too. But not just white or brown - lemon yellow, emerald green, sparkling aqua, hot pink, bright red and more. Mix and match colors too.
The colorful paint idea is also extended to furniture - chairs, tables, and more. Take an older piece - or new unfinished piece - and create a masterpiece. Use solid colors, stripes, florals, designs, and patterns. Let your creativity rule. Paint wooden or metal furniture. The key is using multiple, bright colors for a touch of whimsy.
Use these pieces on a porch, family room, child's bedroom, kitchen and more. Have fun with the idea and see where your imagination takes you.
