Welcome back to our final week of our Outdoor Extravaganza series hosted by my sweet friend Shauna at Satori Design for Living.

I’m SO excited to have had this chance to team up with an amazing group of Canadian bloggers to bring you all sorts of outdoor inspiration, hopefully helping you to bring your outdoor spaces to life again just in time for Spring (in Canada anyway)!

Week one was all about {plants & flowers}

We all know the power of paint my friends, it’s no secret.

But, even after all the painting I’ve done, somehow I still find myself in awe at the difference each and every time I finish a painting project.

Whether it’s a subtle refresh or a bold change, it never ceases to amaze me how something can transform so much with just a quick coat of paint.

We’ve had this old chair for ages now and it’s been a plain and boring white for nearly as long. It’s made the most lovely plant stand on our new front porch space, sitting prominently right next to our front door.

But, though there’s little I love more than white paint everywhere, I’ve always intended to try something a little different with this one…
