Splash of Color

Not too long after we completed the back patio, I gave Jonathan’s old bistro table and matching chairs a coat of glossy black paint. It was easily the cheapest home upgrade to date and it made a world of difference. I began to think it was time to repaint the rest of our patio furniture.

A trip to Home Depot and a quick review of the caps on the spray paint cans yielded what we hoped was the perfect shade—paprika. Although only available in satin, the color was right so we grabbed a couple cans.
