Little Red Chair






This is a little, old chair that we have had on our minuscule front porch forever. It is cute and tiny, but dull and bland.  So I thought that our front door needed a pop of color. 


So I painted it red!


I'm so glad I did! Since I took this picture I have added some fall decor and it looks great with the red. I'll show you some pictures of that later. But this is what it looked like right after.

I really like the chair painted red - What color did you use? I like the little rooster that is strutting his stuff on your porch too :-)

The new paint job just makes that whole fall setting. It wouldnt pop the way it does if the chair was still white. Great job!

That little chair was great when it was white, but now it's super-cute in red! I can only imagine how fantastic it's going to look all decked out for Christmas, not to mention the 4th of July. I think you made the right decision going red!
Happy REDnesday!
