VERDE ANTIQUE

Verde Antique!!My new favorite shade!! My pretty little bench needed a real coat of paint to protect her from the elements.
She has been wearing only a worn coat of primer for way to long!! I had been putting it off because I didn't want to spend the money on paint. This week, while browsing the clearance section at Walmart, I found a can of gloss paint in a light base for only $2. Hmmm....I quickly headed over to see if I could find a color that I liked and there it was VERDE ANTIQUE!! I brought my $2 can of paint on up to the mixer man and asked if he could mix me up this here color with this here $2 light base. Sure thing he said!!
Now, she just needs to be flipped so I can slap a coat on her underside!!
Isn't it a delightful shade!?!!
Hope everyone is well!! Tracey and Amy, I especially hope you and your family feel better soon!! Summer is flying by for us!! It's been unusually cold for the month of July! We haven't even been out to the big lake as the water temps are way to cold!! Stinkin Michigan weather anyway!! Night Night everyone!!

LOVE the color and the price:) It is gorgeous. The weather is a little weird. Not as hot down south as it normally is... but that is OK. Have a blessed day!

Jen, how lucky you are...a $2 paint job. I should be so lucky:-(
The chair is beautiful. I had to laugh at "your new favorite color" comment:-)
I have also found myself in the midst of color conversions.
