~ How do you like me now? ~

I changed this table earlier in the spring but forgot to share. It's an old wicker table that has certainly seen better days!  A coat of spray paint makes a huge, positive difference though. 


Really, really faded ~ right?


I decided to use Rustoleum's Grape in a glossy finish. I like this brand of paint much better than Krylon.  It just goes on so smooth and evenly I think...and better coverage too.





I think it looks very "happy" in this color and will be a great addition to the oranges, etc., for Halloween decor.  Yes, I'm in a fall state of mind ~ just cannot wait!  Will be 106' here today ~ do you blame me?  :-)

Pat this is so funny, because my Mom just used that same color on her outdoor wicker chair. I must get it because I LOVE it. I left your link where you linked up because I am getting ready to leave. If I delete it when going into mr. linky I risk losing the codes that I used to have them on my party...word press is touchy like that if you go in and revise. If I were home on my own computer I could. I can't do it:) But that's ok, no worries, you are there.
