Late to the Party


Tucked away in the wrong folder on my desktop, I found this forgotten post from summer past. A petite bistro table and chairs I picked up in a flea market years ago. It has a permanent place in my backyard season after season. Every spring I throw a little Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® at it and that’s the extent of the maintenance I do. It’s never a priority, always an afterthought, with paint left over from another project.

The colors change somewhat each year, but it’s always to create a version of verdigris. This year it was Aubusson and Duck Egg Blue, for the perfect outdoor, aged patina. Surrounded by pines, hydrangea, and spirea, it’s a natural complement in the garden. I can’t believe it’s only November and I’m already missing the blooms of summer.

Duck Egg Blue is one of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®  go to colors. If you love it as much as I do, check out these posts: Made it my own with Annie Sloan,  Going Coastal Gray, and  A Lovely Duck Egg Blue.
