    Beautiful, Julie! So glad you didn't go with a predictable white ~ the black looks fantastic! Nice job on the pillows and cushions, too. What a great space ~ I'm jealous! : )

    WOW! Turned out perfect! That's going to be a great place to hang out. I might need an outdoor ottoman to put my feet on when I come over there, though. jk Great job! No wonder Mom wants it back now.

    It all turned out gorgeous!! Can I ask why they suggested oil based paint? I have a couple wicker chairs and a sofa that I want to paint soon. Thanks!

    so glad you posted this Julie, We just got an offer accepted TODAY on our new house in OHIO (just 2.5 hours from Kelleigh and Bradley) and we have a lovely sunroom as well and our old white, gross wicker–I was thinking of doing it over in black and now I definetly am going to go with black. It looks stronger and more sophisticated. Evan never wants to sit in it b/c he doesn't think it looks sturdy enough, even though it is… And we didn't have Hobby Lobby in Ca. but they have one in our new town–So glad, missed that store and was envious of all of your creations, now I can do them again myself!!

    I loved the title of this post. I never say no to ANYTHING.
    You are doing a great job, and I have never used oil based paint on wicker.
    Does the paint last longer?

    Great job.

    Nice job. The pillows are a great touch. I need to add some pillows on my porch too. I just finished re-vamping chairs and table that my neighbors were throwing out. They look brand new now. 🙂

    WOAH NURSE!!! When you said screened in porch I was thinking small, and I was wondering what in the world you would do with a 15 piece furniture set. HOLY COW, what a huge beautiful space!! Great refashioning job on the wicker. Yes, you should have gotten a picture of you hauling all of that in your Easter garb. Too funny.

    Thanks for joining the parade!
    XOXO,
    Andy

    Target or somewhere. Truly beautiful, will be right over for a cook out!! lol
    Love the colors you chose as well. I am redoing my bathroom in similiar colors right now.
    Great job, and give yourselves a much deserved pat on the back!!
