simple spruce up project

Here's a super-simple little project I did to spruce up my porch for the spring and summer. First I got an old chair from Freecycle,
and painted it red. I didn't really do much distressing because I knew that just letting it sit outside in the elements would take a toll quickly enough to make it look worn.

I printed the word "welcome" and did a pencil transfer to the back, and then painted over it by hand with a very fine brush.
Add some plants from the best greenhouse around and voila!
I'm linking up again...
