After creating garden rooms, color is my #2 choice for what's important in a landscape. Came across this pic, below, yesterday.
OMG, so glad I stained the teak and painted the iron.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

And it was me too, for 2 decades. Happily.

Who knows how it happens. You wake up one morning and nothing will do but to change what has been perfect for you.

The blue of those chairs are so lovely with the hydrangeas in the background! Color is very important to me too.

I like the before and the after. But hey: change is good. It is afterall what keeps us dreaming and creating beautiful spaces inside and out. Delores

Love the blue it's so pretty with the background but still manages to POP!

What color did you stain the teak?

Love the chair color. Yep. Change is good!

The teak went faded green,, custom stain details are here.

Tara, do you remember the name of the blue paint? We're keeping the cabin red & will change the trim from pinky-beige to white. Looking forward to planting lots of hydrangeas & have been thinking painting the metal items blue.

Thanks & have a great marvelous day!!!
