Front Porch Redo

I've wanted rocking chairs for my front porch, since the day it was built.    The problem is that I have a set of perfectly good, comfortable chairs that make it hard for me to justify buying new rocking chairs.

I might end up buying the the rockers down the road anyway, but I decided to freshen up the old chairs in the meantime with a lick of paint.

I was aiming for raspberry in colour, and forgot that everything seems three shades lighter outside.  I landed squarely on HOT PINK
but I've decided that I like it, especially behind the colourful garden.

One thing that is screamingly missing is a foot stool.  I have one that needs to be repaired and then painted tangerine orange.  I've got plans for the next couple of weeks, though, so that'll have to wait.
