Nothing transforms a tired piece of furniture like a fresh coat of paint! We chose Lioness | 0864 to breathe new life into this wooden bench to happily seat family and friends at our outdoor table. A bright yet earthy yellow, Lioness | 0864 brings liveliness to any dinner conversation. Learn how to paint outdoor furniture here
Do you have a plethora of glass vases just lying around and taking up space? Transform these ordinary items into colorful statement pieces for your next gathering by painting the inside of the vases your favorite hues! You can use leftover paint or create a custom palette. Find your favorite colors here.
We recommend putting a smaller vase with water inside the painted vase to hold your blooms.
Add whimsy and a touch of celebration to your backyard by adding a string of colorful lanterns. When the sun starts to set, these glowing orbs will transport your guests to another world. Paper streamers tucked in and around the table setting flow like a ribbon of color from one end of the table to the other. Plus, having blankets nearby to ward off the nighttime chill offers not only comfort, but another opportunity to add more layers of color to your outdoor space.
