painting and making it our own

 soon after moving in, I got to work painting. I started with lily's room, then the master bedroom, then the patio set the previous owners left behind.

This is Lily's room before I made it over. (sorry it's blurry. I was trying to be sneaky and take a picture while the girl who owned the house was turned around.)
 This is Lily's room after I painted it.

I found a cute idea online to use a round mirror and paint a flower around it. This is my own take on that project. I like the 'hidden' sunburst.

 The owners before us asked if we would like their old patio set. it wasn't in the greatest condition, but since we didn't have a set we said yes.

 during: (primed)

  After: painted

I stenciled the top to add some personality

I bought some cute cushions. It was a crazy process to finally get some at a reasonable price. These were my fourth choice. But they grew on me.
  and finally, the finished product. It only took 11 hours and three coats of paint. but I think it was well worth it.
Don't you love it?! I think it adds some brightness to a somewhat brown, gray and dark space.
