Color of The Day: In The Pink

My downtown neighborhood has just been given Historic Preservation District status, so I thought I should spiff-up a little.

Our collection of porch chairs and cushions have seen a lot of wear, so that seemed to be an easy place to start. Who knew that my choice of pink primer would cause so many comments! Some for the color; some not.

And then when I painted some large pink flowers on the columns, the comments stopped. Oh, dear!

Now, the bright pink has been covered with a beautiful proper white and the columns are once again bare of art. I think I heard a sigh of relief.

However, there is an apple green peeping from under the bottoms of a vintage metal table and pair of chairs. And there is sure to be a floor painting or two before the summer is over. . . .

And with a new baby girl arriving on Monday, we are sure to stay 'in the pink."

I like the pink flowers on the columns but understand why others would object. The beautification is lovely.
