Outdoor patio furniture is a great place to experiment with color. Mother nature can handle it! Christina Diaz knows this and gave an old bench the royal paint treatment.

Maybe your patio furniture is in need of a pick-me-up before your next barbeque. Rather than staining, oiling or painting with just one color, experiment with a bold mix of colors and make that piece really come alive. All the kids will want to sit on this rainbow bench.
