50 Shades of Green
Consider this officially putting the cart before the horse.
Of course since we started thinking about an outdoor space, I have been thinking about how to decorate it. The thing that I love most about our backyard is all the green, so I figure there’s no better strategy than to embrace it!
These shades will be my guiding green light. We already have a dark green wrought iron table and chairs and the Big Green Egg (both closest to the darkest shade).
Earlier this spring, I was totally taken by these candleholders from Crate & Barrel. Then, this weekend, I spied this $7 plant stand at Goodwill.
I hightailed it to Lowe’s for some spray paint. (I find that Lowe’s has a better selection of colors than The Home Depot.) I really wanted a lemony green like in the second paint chip, but I didn’t find one, so I bought a bright green closer to the third chip instead.
Oh, and I snagged those candleholders at Crate & Barrel.
I know this is a pretty small assortment of “furniture” and accessories, but I love the way the colors play off each other. And the gold dust bushes represent the colors perfectly in, you know, actual nature.
I can’t wait to get the full mix of greens going together.
Hopefully before the leaves change.
