~PINK ADIRON CHAIRS ROCK~
Ever since my Mr. AGPMan and I purchased our white Adirondack chairs from Tuesday Morning a few years ago I've wanted to paint them pink! But, at the time we were in the middle of planning our girl's 2007 wedding and so the very thought of squeezing in ONE MORE THING during that crazy-busy summer was out of the question. They were white and would remain white.
Now~I'm quite sure this made my guy VERY HAPPY.
Not so much!
~HOT PINK ANYONE???~
And so...for the next four years they remained void of color. I suppose for many that would have been just fine, but, given the fact they were probably made in China (Boooo!) and were coated with this cheapo and totally pathetic sub-standard white paint (I'm thinking it might have just been colored water!) :(, they haven't fared too well.

Combine their lack of quality, heat from the blazing hot sun, sprinkler and rain water along with our Oklahoma wind (you know...the kind that comes "SWEEPIN' DOWN THE PLAIN") we ended up having a real mess on our hands.
~HOW ABOUT TURQUOISE???~
And so...over the weekend when my husby pulled our chairs out from winter storage you can imagine my despair... They were a totally crummied-out and at first I was terribly vexed.
~IN DIRE NEED OF PAINT~
~PINK PAINT TO THE RESCUE~
I realized that because they were in such terrible condition and in need of a really good repaint job I had a GREAT EXCUSE for changing them to PINK!

~PALE PINK PAINT RULES~
Early this morning I was already on my mission! After sanding and sanding and more sanding I've managed to get the first couple of coats of PINK PAINT applied to the footstool portion of three chairs!
As soon as I finish with all the painting I'll be sure to post pictures of their makeover! Our lawn and garden area is sure to be stylin'!
Now...in case you are a BIG Do-It-Yourself-er, I found these neat picture-plans online and thought I'd pass them along! Pretty detailed and not for the faint of heart for sure...

Hope you have an awesome day!
Love to you...
