On Sunday, the crazy heatwave that kept it over 100 degrees (at least by heat index) for what felt like forever finally broke. The outside isn’t such a dreadfully hot place anymore, and I’m back to enjoying summer.

In May, I learned on The Nate Berkus Show that you can use exterior paint on indoor furniture to make it outside safe! You have to repaint it a bit more often than you probably would furniture that’s meant to be outside, but it’s still a fun idea. And … think about all of the color!
