Before & After: Painting it white

Hello! I hope you had a fun weekend. I spent most of Sunday painting, painting and then painting some more. The outdoor setting needed a coat of white paint because it was starting to get rust spots. I also painted both lamps for Robert in a lighter blue colour (same colour as the front door) because I thought the other blue was a little too... blue..

...and I painted a couple of chairs I found last year.

Inspired by the image on the left, I painted the wood white and I was going to recover the seats and back in a similar blue fabric but I left them as is because they are in good condition with no tears.
Do you know what I like best about these? The screw caps at the back. I didn't paint over them and I'm glad I didn't. I think they look a little like buttons.

These chairs are not the most comfortable of course but I'm not in the studio for long stretches at a time and the previous chair is now in the study. It is nice to have the extra seat for when my husband or others join me down there as I work. Best of all these cost me $0 because I already had the paint.

How was your weekend. What did you get up to?
